      Great South African experience that you will treasure
      This was such a great experience! Great communication via WhatsApp leading up to the scheduled date and arranging changes due to weather that fit my schedule. It was actually very easy to drive to the meeting location at the lodge using Google maps. Everything was explained thoroughly and nothing was rushed. It was a great experience from the initial meeting to watching the balloon get inflated and throughout the entire flight all the way to returning for a marvelous breakfast at the lodge. Such a serene and peaceful flight over the beautiful South African countryside watching the sunrise and even spotting some animals below. There was no fear or uncomfortable feeling from the height and everything went very smoothly. If you're considering trying this you should just do it and you will be so happy afterwards. It's a great life experience, especially something to add to your holiday if you're here visiting. And the best thing is that by the time you're done you still have the whole day ahead of you to do other things. The gentlemen who run the event and pilot the balloon are first class and did everything possible for a wonderful experience. I cannot recommend this tour enough!

      Well worth the early morning...!!
      Was one of the most amazing experiences ever, definitely a bucket list item ticked off for most of us and no regrets. Our best company year end function yet. Thanks to Debtmanager (Pty) LTD for this opportunity. Then thanks to Marc and his crew, absolutely insane effort from preparation to getting us off the ground to the most insane flight over Cradle Moon and then landing right onto the trailer. Crew very helpful and as excited as we where for our first hot air balloon adventure. Thanks guys we will get your adventure out there for others to enjoy and experience.

      A very memorable adventure!
      This flight was a birthday present to my husband. And indeed, it has been a very special and memorable adventure. The pilot (Harold), and his assistants (Jonny and Lucas) made these moments were very special. We enjoyed spotting out the animals in the Reserve, admiring the beautiful scenery from above, and the champagne offered at the end of the flight. We highly recommend to everyone that appreciates extraordinary events.

      Amazing tour and views
      This is something you need to try if you’ve never had the chance. From start to finish was the perfect day. When we got to the location there was tea and coffee. The staff are brilliant, easy check in and explained everything. We was then taken to a shuttle bus and made our way to the balloon’s. Our Pilot Harold was such an amazing person, he was friendly and explained clearly about landing procedures. The balloons are guided by the wind so you can’t guarantee it will take you along the path the pilot is hoping for. Luckily we went on the right path and seen some amazing views and wildlife. After we landed we had a couple of glasses of champagne with Orange juice and spoke about the history of the land. We was then presented with a certificate. Back to the lodge for a full breakfast. This is something you need to try. Thanks again.

      Spectacular start to the day! Gliding along peacefully enjoying the views and feeling suspended in time.
      It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. From the moment we arrived we were taken of and comfortable. The views were incredible and unforgettable memories were made. It was my husband's birthday and he had the time of his life!

      Excellent!
      It was an amazing experience! However getting in and out of the basket at the age of 78 and 81 tends to be a bit difficult as it does not have a door that opens BUT our pilot Neels and the whole crew was amazing!

      Balloon Adventure
      If you’re visiting Pretoria you MUST check this off your bucket list ✅ What an amazing experience- the views, the feeling at take off and the air in your face is like nothing else you’ll ever experience (short of jumping out of a plane) We did the classic safari flight over The Cradle Of Humankind and it was so well done that I was not scared once (and I’m afraid of heights)! The ride is a leisurely 1 hr float and once you land you get to toast your experience with a mimosa and then a buffet breakfast afterwards. Make sure to visit the Cradle’s visitor centre for another uniquely whole experience!

    This was by far the most amazing trip I will remember forever. Firstly thank you to Celeste for after 2 years constantly extending our original booking until we were back in SA to use it and the weather was good to us.

    We finally made it happen and WOW! You have to do this at least once! Just look at pictures and it will tell you everything you missing.

    I have to say the team are so professional. thank you Jappie for being such a great captain. You really were truly informative on everything. we learnt so much about this area!

    The experience was incredible. The balloon ride was so smooth even those in my party who hate heights had a great time and said they'd go again! We got ro see some rhinos, ostriches, and zebras! It felt like the ride went by way to fast it was so good. Our pilot was knowledgeable and personable and the breakfast after was great as well!

    I had booked the Safari Flight for my boyfriend's 30th birthday, along with both of our families and friends and it was an amazing experience! I would highly recommend. Our pilot, Paul, made it a memorable experience for us and would definitely do it again.

    The only disappointment for us was that as there was a delay in starting due to the weather (which is always unpredictable) and not AirVentures fault, and because of this delay, our breakfast was very rushed due to a function starting which I do feel it is not our fault and a bit frustrating that we now had to eat quickly and not enjoy the food and we did not receive our complimentary champagne after the flight. That was the only negative part of the experience. Everything else was great! Thank you very much to Paul and AirVentures for an amazing experience.

    This was a very pleasant experience, the staff was friendly, helpful and entertaining, the flight felt safe and everything was explained properly, the views are amazing and our pilot was knowledgeable and friendly. The breakfast was delicious at Kloofzight, would recommend to anyone! Worth every penny and the early wake up!

    The experience was AMAZING!!! We saw lots of animals and the views were beautiful. We felt safe throughout the flight and loved every second of it. Definitely something I would do again, with AirVentures as their team was so friendly and helpful and the hospitality was excellent. We thought it was worth every cent!!

    We did this for my birthday and it was a wonderful way to celebrate. We stayed at Cradle Moon and were picked up at reception at 4:45am and driven to the hotel where the balloons leave/land. there was a little wait for others to arrive but we were comfortable in the main reception and had tea/coffee provided. We all went out to the main field where there were 3 balloons being filled. It was amazing to watch them slowly rise and bring the baskets upright so we could get in. There's a small step ladder provided and it's awkward but manageable. The sections in the basket are small but although it's a snug fit you soon forget all that when you're flying. Our pilot was great and went through everything with us - including what to do if we had a bumpy landing. The views are amazing and we saw rhinos, giraffe and various horned creatures...I'm useless with their names! It's the most relaxing and serene way to travel and we were mesmerised. A lady in our balloon was scared of heights but she loved it. Afterwards, we all had some champagne and/or orange juice and everyone even sang 'Happy Birthday' to me! We got certificates to mark the occasion and then were taken back to our hotels. All in all a beautiful start to the day - would highly recommend.

    This is one of the best trip I’ve ever experience. The staff was very professional and friendly. I stayed in Johannesburg and ordered the pickup/drop off car via them and the driver was also friendly and on-time.
    The baloon trip was of course amazing, we can see giraffes and other animals from the sky. To close the trip, we have a very nice breakfast at the hotel.
    Remember to have jackets/coats with you since it could be freezing cold on the sunrise trip during winter (I went there on June and it was very cold).
