I went for a safari balloon ride at Kloofzicht in the Magaliesberg. It was an early start but well worth it. Jana was there to greet us and keep us informed the whole time. Our pilot was very knowledgeable about ballooning and the landscape beneath us. We were up for about an hour in total - such a peaceful experience. Well worth it.

Jana provided very quick & thorough responses to emailed questions. Meeting site in Muldersdrift is only 45 minutes from JoBurg. The Kloofzicht Lodge where we have breakfast is a spectacular resort. The balloon ride itself is fabulous! I recommend taking the scenic flight over the safari flight for 3 reasons: You'll see just as many, if not more animals (per the captain), it's less driving to the launch site, and it's less expensive. Also, I don't think the private flight is worth the money. The basket is divided into compartments, and there is no more than 4 people per compartment.

Only downside is the website could be clearer on pricing & meeting site.

We really would like to say thank you to Adam and Jana for an unforgettable, quality, breathtaking experience! The trip and how it was conducted was beyond our expectations and we enjoyed it as a family thoroughly. We would highly recommend it to anyone. The staff was professional, funny, experienced and helpful. All the equipment was in immaculate condition. The breakfast afterwards was fantastic.

Thank you for filling our family memory box full of treasured adventures.

I've been wanting to scratch off hot air balloon out of my bucket list for years and what other better place than in South Africa. I began communicating with Jana Jonker, event and in-flight coordinator a couple months before scheduling the flight date. Jana is super nice, knowledgeable and professional. She explained in details about what to expect from our experience. We arrived at the lodge at 4:15am and were greeted with a warm welcome by Jana. We were had hot coffee and tea. Our flying experience began before 6am. The pilot was interactive and made us feel relaxed. My daughter is afraid of highs and she conquered her fears; she had an amazing experience. We also saw some lions. Landing was smooth and we celebrated our fighting experience with champagne and orange juice. After that we drove back to the lodge where we had a nice breakfast. The whole experience was amazing; a MUST!!

Mervin and his crew made this an unforgettable experience!
We saw rhino, antelope and much more. Visibility was perfect seeing as far Northcliff, Sandton, Voortrekkermonument and Kempton park from Muldersdrift.
Truly an amazing experience, with no altitude fear kicking in.
