Fantastic experience, way beyond what we expected. Weather was too bad for the planned day, but we had perfect conditions the following day and had the most wonderful flight. Celeste took care of our logistics speedily and efficiently and Adam is surely the best pilot ever. Highly recommended.

I highly recommend booking with AirVentures. Thank you to our pilot Ruan and the rest of the AirVentures crew who went out of their way to make my husband’s birthday memorable, even giving him a birthday card! The flight was nothing short of epic: we saw the sunrise, spotted some wildlife and drank champaign. The whole experience was very well organized.

It was a real experience with great professionals. The sunrise up in the hot air balloon
was really worth waking up at 3,00 in the morning. We enjoyed the ride and felt very secure ( though we had some apprehensions before going). The team is just exceptional and they really know their job. The landing was just amazing, could not be smoother.
We had a nice breakfast in a 5% hotel before heading back to Johannesburg. Highly recommend, a must do once in your life.

I can only imagine this is what Princess Jasmine experienced on her flying carpet ride, it was truly a magical experience.

First off booking with Air ventures was a lovely interaction, Jana is friendly and very prompt in her response.

Jappie was our Pilot and he is phenomenal, he took us on a glorious adventure through the air and a fantastic landing.

I would 100% say add it to your bucket list it is one heck of an incredible experience.
