Attraction details
Owner description: Experience - the unique sensation of Hot Air Ballooning in the Klein Karoo. Drifting on a gentle breeze, you will enjoy a sense of peace and tranquility; Enjoying the panoramic view of Oudtshoorn and the majestic Swartberg Mountain range, which will stay with you forever...It requires no special effort other than rising a little earlier than usual. While you enjoy a cup of coffee - we prepare the Balloon for the flight. Shortly before sunrise, you will join the pilot in the basket for take-off. Your adventure begins when we gently float away in the crisp morning air! After landing the retrieve crew will meet us with champagne. Pricing on my website

Bit of an early start - but this was a magical experience.

Charl took us up more than 1km into the skies above Oudtshoorn which gave us fanastic views over the whole region & allowed us to enjoy the sunrise from a unique perspective.

Charl is a very experienced balloonist & made us feel very safe & comfortable. He took the time to explain all the technicalities of balloon flight.

A must if this is on your list of "things to do before..."!

Balloon flight is very weather-dependent so be prepared for last minute changes.
