Owner description: Life Ballooning offers spectacular sunrise hot air balloon flights and packages from Hartbeespoort Dam, at the foot of the majestic Magalies mountain range.
Reviewed 16 February 2014

We went on a Hot Air Balloon ride with Life Ballooning. The ride left from a resort called Eagle Waters at Hartebeespoort Dam. It was an early start (we had to be there at 5:45am), but well worth the early wake-up.

Andre, who flew the Balloon, was very experienced and kept us relaxed the whole time. We coasted gently over the dam and the farms in the area, experiencing different levels of altitude. It was really quite special. Apart from when the burner is turned on to fill up the balloon, the ride was serenely quiet and totally peaceful.

We had a bit of a bumpy landing, but nothing that was any cause for concern.

After the balloon ride, we all went for a yummy breakfast. It was called a Champagne breakfast, but the bubbly on offer was the JC le Roux Le Domaine (sweet one), which was not to my taste at all. Nonetheless, still definitely worth a visit.

It is pricey, so try and get to go on a special deal (we did).
