Experience the awesome thrill and peaceful serenity of hot air ballooning over the Drakensberg region. Hot air balloon flights are offered principally on the edge of the Drakensberg mountains and we have a take off site right here in front of the Antbear Drakensberg Lodge and within sight of Giants Castle. You will meet at the hot air balloon launch site approximately 30 minutes before sunrise, your pilot will then give you a safety briefing. Once the hot air balloon is heated and you are in the balloons basket you will enjoy a flight of around an hour. Then you all return to a breakfast together back at the Antbear Lodge.
Hot air balloon flights from Antbear lodge require a minimum of 6 persons. If you don't have 6 people in your party who want to fly, we will try and make up the numbers from people staying with us or at other establishments in the area.
For smaller groups the company Drakensberg Ballooning offers scenic hot air balloon flights from their farm in Winterton. And you can even hire the exclusive use of the hot air balloon for a special occasion like a proposal.
