Ballooning is the oldest form of manned flight, its the safest form of flight, it is the most pointless.
I should qualify that, when scientists first took to the skies they took scientific instruments and began adding detail to understanding of the atmosphere.
Today the balloon is a magical slow moving platform from which to view our world. Its probably not unlike being on a flying carpet (If anyone knows what a flying carpets like to fly then please email)
We fly principally on the edge of the Drakensberg mountains in the South East of South Africa just inland from Durban. Take off is from a site in or around the Kamberg Valley and within sight of Giants Castle.
You will meet us approx 30 minutes before sunrise at your allotted launch site. At this point your pilot will give you a safety brief. Once the balloon is heated and your in! You will enjoy a flight of around an hour. After helping pack the balloon you will return to a location close to the take off point for an Alfresco breakfast and Champagne.
Will the weather be alright??
We prefer winds of less than 10 knots at the surface and no rain.
