Enjoy a magical hot air balloon flight departing from one of the most scenic venues near the quaint and charming village of Clarens. This is an artist’s paradise of scenic splendour. There are dozens of quaint shops, restaurants and art galleries all around the village square. On your arrival at the launch site, you will be welcomed by your pilot and offered a warm cup of coffee to enjoy while you watch the preparations for the flight. While team inflates the balloon using hot air, you can mingle with the rest of the guests travelling with you.
Once the balloon is ready, you’ll be able to climb into the basket and as the ropes are released, you’ll gently lift off the ground. Up and away you fly to where the wind takes you – you’ll drift at wind speed and there is little or no turbulence during flight – you might get a glimpse of the Maluti Mountains or a quaint village depending on the wind direction, you never know how far you will fly or where you are going to land … until you get there. The pilot varies the height he flies at, from treetop height to about 1000 feet above the ground, and will land in an open field.
After drifting over exquisite scenes, the pilot will gently bring the balloon down to earth and you can toast this magical experience with a tall glass of champagne. You will return by Land Rover to the launch site and enjoy a scrumptious breakfast at the nearest lodge to end off your perfect scenic adventure. During breakfast, you’ll also receive a certificate commemorating your flight. Don’t forget your camera to capture all the stunning photo opportunities.
