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.

Customer Reviews

It was a great experience. Paul, our pilot, was phenomenal. He made every effort to steer the hot air balloon towards where the animals were. As a result, we saw lions, hippos, etc. Staff, especially, Phumi, was friendly and helpful, always keeping us posted if there are changes due to weather. - Bongani Mbokazi - CAB

Dit was FANTASTIES!! - Jones -# 451


What a beautiful privileged experience. From the moment that we were picked up, the hour game drive, the peaceful soaring in the air, the amazing breakfast in the bushveld and the hour game drive going back was totally worth every cent paid. We were treated with warmth and kindness. Bongani our driver and Marc our pilot were hospitable and very knowledgeable and answered all our questions with enthusiasm. This was a bucket list item for us and we saved for it the whole year, and I have no regrets and nothing that I would change. Thank you for your professionalism and friendliness. A once in a life time experience that lived up to our expectations. Thank you!! - Shani Steyn-cab#2407
