Balloonflights in South Africa take place - weather permitting - at sunrise before thermal activity starts.
While there is no way to hot air balloon over huge build up areas and cities like Cape Town specifically, we fly you over the spectacular Winelands of the Bergriver Valley near Paarl, about 55 km from the Waterfront in Cape Town.
We make you real aeronauts by getting you involved in the rigging of the state-of-the-art balloon and a gentle ascent takes you well above tree top level and with a light breeze you fly away over fields and vineyards.
Our retrieve vehicle follows and will bring you back to Paarl, where the exquisite Grande Roche Hotel expects us with a five star breakfast to celebrate this lovely morning experience with a bottle of responsibly produced Villiera Sparkling Wine.
Wineland Ballooning cc. is a South African registered non-scheduled Airline operating at highest standards of service since 1990. We are licensed and checked by the SA Civil Aviation Authority and pride ourselves with an impeccable safety record of over 2650 flights.
Many people from all over the world have enjoyed a flight with us but due to erratic weather and wind conditions in the Cape cancellations happen just as often.
Therefore please allow as many days as possible to arrange your flight.
It´s advisable to phone us as soon as you arrive in the viscinity of Paarl or Cape Town to give us and yourselves the chance to organise the experience.
Even though there is a good chance that mother nature will spoil our attempts, because safety comes first and we dont´t take any risks.
We will also not compromise on the Quality of the flight by flying low level, dodging the (too) strong upper wind and covering only a few 100 meters in distance, simply to squeeze the flight in.
We feel for such a premium activity, conditions should be perfect.
Balloonflights and QUALITY Balloonflights are not necessarily the same. Trust us, you will find out during your flight!
This is why memorable Balloon Adventures near Cape Town will always be exclusive and sometimes require all your patience up-front.
We had guests from all walks of life who only went up at their second holiday in the Cape and this gives you a good reason to come back to the “Fairest Cape of All”.
The experience lasts a few hours, but the memories last a lifetime.
Due to the wet winters in the “Green Season”, our flights only take place between November and the beginning of May.
Flights last appr. one hour but please allow 4-5 hours for the whole trip incl. of breakfast.
We can take a max of 5-7 passengers in the basket.
