Undertaken on the border of Gauteng and the North West, the tour offers incredible scenery in an extraordinary way. The exhilarating experience is excellent for keen photographers, who have the perfect bird’s eye view of the Magaliesberg Valley and various game reserves down below.

Whether you want to surprise your partner in a unique and romantic way, enjoy a view like never before, or tick off your bucket list, this phenomenal adventure is for you!
On a scenic balloon safari travellers can expect to see some of the best and most beautiful areas of South Africa. Taking off at dawn, travellers will see a stunning African sunrise waking the country side down below. Enjoy a glass of the finest champagne as you drift amongst the clouds, before landing where a hearty breakfast awaits you.
A southern African safari is the ultimate adventure on its own, but when coupled with a balloon tour it is truly something special! Experience the African bushland from the skies on a game viewing balloon safari. Travellers will encounter an aerial view of the bushland and some of South Africa’s wildest animals. They will view the most spectacular sunrise over the African plains and enjoy a champagne breakfast upon landing.
For a truly wonderful adventure, travellers can stay at a game reserve of their choice afterwards. Our recommendation would be the Madikwe Private Game Reserve, which is only a 3 hour drive from the balloon safari base. Madikwe is the fifth largest game reserve in South Africa, and consists of a number of luxury safari lodges ranging from 4 to 5-Star. Madikwe is also a Big 5 game reserve, and guests will be sure to catch a glimpse of an elephant, rhino, leopard, lion and buffalo. East Cape Tours are on hand to arrange your safari! We can tailor-make anything you need, for your perfect getaway.
Balloon safaris last around an hour and passengers will be required to stand for that duration.
