Guests will be transferred to the balloon launch site. The launch time is at 05h00 (seasonal), when coffee/tea is served and guests witness the balloon being inflated. The flight is approximately 60 minutes; during the flight passengers can relax and enjoy the spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. The distant views to the west are of the mountains, including God’s Window. The views to the east are of the land gradually flattening out towards the horizon, with the Sabie River winding its way towards the sunrise. The vegetation is a mix of riverine forest, indigenous bush and fruit orchards, and the sub-tropical climate ensures that the area is green and lush almost all year round.
This is a beautiful ballooning venue! After the flight passengers join the pilot for charming country breakfast, and for the presentation of flight certificates, returning to the Lodge a little later in the morning.
