Activity Description

Join us on a once in a lifetime experience! We have Hot Air Balloon Safaris launching from the centre of Pilanesberg National Park.
Guests are collected early morning by a registered field guide, in an open safari vehicle from their respective hotels at Sun City Resort or lodges in Pilanesberg area. Day visitors can be collected from Bakubung Gate. The transfer through the park takes approximately an hour as the balloon launch site is situated in the center of the Pilanesberg National Park. At the launch site the guests will be met by the pilot and crew, who will proceed to give a briefing. Guests will then embark in a 1,2 metre high basket and commence on an unforgettable experience that lasts approximately 45 minutes to an hour. This will undoubtedly be the finest way of viewing the inhabitants of the Pilanesberg National Park. On landing, guests will be served with sparkling wine, orange juice and Breakfast Canapes. The field guide will then convey the guests through the Pilanesberg National Park to the Wallow bush venue, where a full English breakfast will be enjoyed. Each guest will receive a first flight certificate signed by the Pilot. After a mini game drive, guests will be returned to their respective hotels. The total duration of this activity is approximately ±5 hours.

VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE! This activity is extremely weather dependent and a minimum of 4 people are required for the flight to take place. It is advisable that guests book 2 or 3 consecutive mornings as a backup plan.

We couldn't have asked for more from the whole experience. What a beautiful ride, made even better by a friendly and professional team who kept us informed and comfortable throughout. On the trip, our game ranger found out about a leopard sighting, and our pilot was able to take us close enough to watch it move around the bush - truly the experience of a lifetime. The drives through the park and breakfast, both with friendly professionals at the helm, bookended the balloon ride beautifully. - Erin Meissner-Cab# 2506
