Absolutely breathtaking :)

I truly had a wonderful experience. It was a smooth take off and such a peaceful flight. The pilot and staff are really friendly and made us feel welcomed. I felt very safe while in the air and the view was definitely something to remember. The breakfast and bubbly was scrumptious. :) Already booked second experience.

This was truly an amazing experience.
The staff were very professional as well as friendly. Made everyone feel comfortable.
The flight itself was beautiful, and the breakfast after was very tasty. I do recommend this for everyone.
I’ve already scheduled my next adventure with SA Encounter (paragliding), and look forward to using them again for future adventures.

Great Pilot and friendly staff

I recently had the privilege to tick hot air ballooning off my bucket list. From the moment the balloon started going up in the air my mouth just hanged open. It felt like a whole new world up there, like all your troubles are left behind. The view from there was something else. Words can not describe the beauty of the wine lands, the animals and the water. The shadow of the balloon going over the fields while the little deer are running through it are more than a picture can describe. I have a fear of heights and never thought I would be able to do this but I had the best pilot and did not feel afraid once, not even during the landing. Ended the day off with a lovely Breakfast and stories from the pilot.
