Hot Air Balloon Rides Cape Town

Looking to go hot air ballooning in and around Cape Town. Let’s see if we can help you. Unlike Gauteng, the Western Cape doesn’t have as many hot air balloon companies so the prices aren’t as competitive, and it also means that there is less availability. You basically have two options in terms of launch sites. These are Oudtshoorn and the Winelands. In Oudtshoorn there is only 1 company that offers hot air balloon rides. They operate year round, with the launch taking place at 5:15am in winter and 7am in winter. Prices look to be around R2200 per person, but of course group rates can be negotiated. This might be a little too far out for people who live in Cape Town and the surrounds to travel, so the other option is to go on a hot air balloon flight in the Winelands. At this stage we are also only able to find one company offering hot air ballooning in the Cape Winelands. This company is called Life Ballooning. Their launch site is Klein Joostenburs which is situated about 20 min out of Cape Town on the N1. As is usual you’ll have a nice warm cup of coffee/tea before the flight and then a hearty breakfast after. As the weather in the Western Cape is so unpredictable, please note that you should be in contact with the hot air balloon company before you leave for your flight to ensure that it is still on.
