Incredible! Book it...

Absolutely amazing. Just do it. Saw loads of animals from the air including leopard, zebra & Giraffe. Picked up from sun city promptly, met our Pilot Harman. Very professionally run. So peaceful and serene and a sound delight. Best part of our holiday. All followed by an amazing breakfast and glass of champagne!

Absolutely amazing. Don’t hesitate in booking. Picked up early by Greg who was fun for the 45 minute journey to the launch site. Even if it’s summer wear warm clothes as it’s an open sided vehicle. Captain Harman and Tony piloted the Balloon beautifully. It was a stunning majestic experience, we saw Rhinos, leopards, hyenas, lots of Game all from the serene comfort of the balloon. Honestly a once in a lifetime experience. Highly recommended
