Worth getting up early, this was a lovely experience with Charl and the lads! Its nice to see the town from 1km in the sky and letting the wind take control - well worth doing!

We had booked for the 8th but weather was not good. Charl the owner and pilot kept us informed of conditions and the morning of the 9th we took off after tea and coffee while we watched the balloon prepared. A one hour flight rising to 1km in height and travelling 10kms. 90 photographs taken and after an exciting landing we were served a glass of champagne. A wonderful experience.

Professionally handeled, no safety concerns at all, perhaps less bells and whistles then some of the other up country operators,but then the price is more reasonable especially for kids.
I would recommend this as a wonderful way to experience ballooning and to tick off from your bucket list!

Bit of an early start - but this was a magical experience.

Charl took us up more than 1km into the skies above Oudtshoorn which gave us fanastic views over the whole region & allowed us to enjoy the sunrise from a unique perspective.

Charl is a very experienced balloonist & made us feel very safe & comfortable. He took the time to explain all the technicalities of balloon flight.

A must if this is on your list of "things to do before..."!

Balloon flight is very weather-dependent so be prepared for last minute changes.
