Oudtshoorn Ballooning

The Klein Karoo is a great place for a unique ballooning experience with panoramic views of Oudtshoorn and the majestic Swartberg mountain range. The Swartberg is known as one of the most impressive mountain passes in the country with the contrasting huge buttresses of buckled orange-red rock and placid waters.

Passengers enjoy coffee or tea while preparations for the flight. Flights usually launch around 5.15am in Summer and 7am in Winter. Shortly before sunrise, passengers join the pilot in the basket for take off into the crisp morning air over the Karoo.
Hot Air Ballooning is one of the best activities in Oudtshoorn, with a fantastic view of the early morning sunrise and beautiful surrounding mountains and valleys flying 1000ft or more above ground level as well as the typical Karoo landscape when flying at treetop height.
As Oudtshoorn Ballooning’s focus is solely on this area, their pilots can provide you with interesting information on the area as well as point out any notable sites for passengers throughout the flight.

The flight duration is approximately 45-60 minutes depending on weather conditions for the day. Upon landing, passengers enjoy a glass of sparkling wine while the Oudtshoorn Ballooning crew packs the balloon away. Passengers are then returned to the launch site where they can enjoy a sumptuous buffet breakfast while they reminisce on the end of a memorable experience.

Passengers are advised to wear comfortable clothes for the flight and to bring along a hat to shield your head from the burners. Additionally, the air at higher altitudes can be cooler and you are recommended to bring with a warm jacket. Whatever you do, don’t forget your camera and binoculars to capture the spectacular memories of the experience.
