Nova Hot Air Ballooning Safaris in the Garden Route and Little Karoo - Balloon Rides.
Nova Ballooning has you covered for your Garden Route or Klein Karoo balloon flight and our launch sites are accessible from Mossel Bay, George, Wilderness and Oudtshoorn. While any balloon flight is an exciting experience, we at Nova Ballooning feel privileged to operate in this spectacular region. The weather dictates where we fly from and our launch sites offer flights over the Little Karoo or Garden Route, both of which provide spectacular scenic landscapes; immense, unspoilt and soulful.
Your highly experienced pilot will also act as your guide providing interesting information along the way. With the unusual aerial perspective, your pilot will be able to point out unusual geological features (the Klein Karoo was once an inland sea), animals and birds and share flight information with you too. There’ll also be times of absolute silence to just take in the beauty of the sunrise. Those who are into photography will be flat-out taking the shots of a lifetime.
While you’re in the air, the busy ground crew, keep you in their sights so that they’re there when you land, ready to help you out of the basket and hand over the chilled champagne to the pilot to open.
Nova Ballooning’s adventures are so much more than just the flight. The whole package from pick up to drop off is hosted with enthusiasm and attention to detail and includes coffee and South Africa’s favourite morning snack- boere beskuits or rusks, flight certificates, watching the bobbing, wobbling balloon inflate and celebratory champagne with the pilot after disembarkation. The adventure is concluded with a hearty breakfast feast and time for everyone to revisit and share their experiences of the trip.
