Hot Air Ballooning over the Sabie River Valley, Mpumalanga

The Sabie River Valley and surrounds in Mpumalanga is a particularly lovely part of South Africa – and the vistas can surely be no better appreciated than from the quiet, lofty heights of an air-balloon. Balloons over Africa launch just 10km from Hazyview on the Mpumalanga Drakensberg Escarpment and fly over the Lowveld – over the Sabie Valley with the Kruger Park in the distance, usually landing in the Lowveld, but occasionally able to fly back to the launch area.

Balloons Over Africa is a fully licensed operator, and has been offering Hot Air Balloon Flights in the Sabie River Valley since 1998 with highly experienced hot air balloon pilots and operators who have brought both commercial and competition ballooning experience to the business to offer the most professional and safest hot air balloon experience possible.

Balloons Over Africa can take 4 – 6 people per flight, depending on weight, but do not take small children. Older children (ideally over 16) must be accompanied by an adult. Booking is essential, but flights are weather dependant.
