Hot-Air Ballooning in Wilderness, South Africa - Balloon Rides.
The launch site for Wilderness balloon flights changes depending on weather but generally feature the green and rugged hunched backs of the Outeniqua Mountains or the wide-open russet lands of the ancient Klein Karoo. A balloon flight near Wilderness will add a memorable touch to your Garden Route Adventure.
The whole experience; waking in the dark, the anticipation, watching the rig being set up and the giant flame slowly inflating the majestic balloon, the first sensation of lifting off the ground and then the unearthly silence as you drift through the dawn sky, evokes a sense of the surreal. The escapade might feel whimsical, but you’ll be hosted by professional balloon pilots and efficient ground crew whose years of experience will soon put you at ease and when you’re brought gently back to earth you’ll be longing for the skies again. A celebratory glass of sparkling wine and a tasty breakfast where you can reminisce about your adventure will round off a perfect morning.
