Sky Adventures Ballooning

Sky Adventures are based in Durban and offer hot air balloon flights and other aviation rides throughout South Africa. Although based in Durban, they also provide hot air balloon flights in Gauteng, Mpumalanga and Cape Town.

The hot air balloon flight that launches from Tala Game Reserve in Kwa-zulu Natal, offers breathtaking views from the slow moving platform on the edge of the Drakensberg Mountains just inland from Durban. These flights take place around the Kamberg Valley and within sight of Giant’s Castle.

Prior to launch for all flights, passengers receive a safety briefing before taking to the skies. The flight duration is approximately one hour, after which passengers can choose to participate in packing up the hot air balloon. Once packed up, passengers are returned to the launch site where they can enjoy an alfresco breakfast and sparkling wine.

Sky Adventures prices for hot air balloon flights range between R2400 for bookings of one to three people and R1950 for bookings of 10 to 15 people. These rates are per person and include breakfast after the flight. Passengers are advised to wear comfortable clothing and bring along a warm jacket as the air can be cooler at higher altitudes. It is also important to bring along a camera to capture the experience.

Sky adventures also offer Gyrocopter flights, Helicopter flights and Microlight flights. The Gyrocopter enables the passenger to experience safe open flying while enjoying the breathtaking views along the coast and up to the mountains. The 2-seater Magni Gyrocopter has a maximum speed of 210kph. Their helicopter rides and Microlight flights over the coast and inland areas can be partnered with a stop over picnic in the Kwa-Zulu Natal countryside.

For the more adventurous, Sky Adventures offer Skydive and Tandem Skydive Jumps as well as Paragliding and Tandem Paragliding flights and instruction courses between the green grassy slopes of Bulwer Mountain.

Sky Adventures also offer a host of private and corporate charter requirements including helicopters, light aircraft and executive and business jets.
