About Hot Air Balloning SA
We launch our hot air balloons at dawn, as this is the only time the air is stable. We drift with the wind, so there is no turbulence during flight - it’s just you and the elements. There are days where there is very little wind and other days where the wind picks up in flight, so we never know how far we will fly or where we are going to land until we get there. The flight duration is generally one hour, but can be anywhere from about 50 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes, depending on the wind direction and the accessibility of a suitable landing site.

The pilot uses the different directional winds at different altitudes to steer the balloon, however, the main control the pilot has is simply up and down. The pilot will usually try to vary the height he flies at; the maximum height he will attain will depend on Air Traffic Control authorities in the area, but it is usually about 1500’ to 2000’ above the ground. He will also fly at treetop height so you can see what is happening below you – or to spot game. The pilot heads towards an open field to land; the crew ground follow the balloon during flight and pack it up on the landing site whilst our passengers enjoy a celebratory glass of champagne. We then return to a nearby lodge for breakfast. The total duration is 3 - 4 hours from the time we meet until after breakfast.

What to wear?

Clothing and equipment:

o    Hats or caps are essential

o    Valuables should be kept to a minimum

o    Temperatures are often warmer in the air than on the ground.

o    We recommend that you wear clothing in peelable layers, long pants and closed flat shoes as you will need to climb into and out of the hot air balloon’s basket.

o    In summertime, your shoes can become quite wet in the early morning dew, so it is recommended that you bring a spare pair for after the flight.

o    At any time of the year, we recommend wearing sunscreen on your face.

o    Extra jackets, handbags, backpacks or camera bags / tripods may be left with the ground crew during flight.

o    Please be sure to have extra batteries for your camera

o    … and don’t worry about the smiles - we provide them!
