Corporate Adventures on Hot Air Balloons
When it comes to corporate team building events, sometimes the usual get-together just won’t cut it. Something that might literally sweep employees, clients or guests off their feet and create a lasting memory whilst doing so is often the perfect option. Consider an hour hot air balloon flight in South Africa, and a full breakfast. No better way to start or end that perfect conference team build or product launch.
Choose Something Different
Even though hot air ballooning is the oldest form of flight known to man it is an adventure that many people have not experienced. Our corporate hot air balloons are perfect for large or small groups and fly passengers for an hour over the magnificent Cradle of Humankind. This hot air balloon experience includes a full buffet-styled breakfast at Glenburn Lodge. You may combine this with a promotional lecture or workshop.
Should you wish to fly from a destination of your choice please call us for a quotation ( additional transport cost and even accommodation for pilot and crew may have to be taken into consideration)
Biggest Hot Air Balloon in Africa
Our 16 man balloon (known as Monster) is one of the biggest Hot Air Balloons in Africa and the most popular balloon to hire for corporate events because it allows the entire group to fly together. Should guests exceed 16 people, we will be more than happy to fly two or more balloons.
We regularly launch corporate balloons for:
- Product launches
- Social events
- Client appreciation events
- Team building
Hot air balloon flights can also be organised as incentives, prizes or gifts.
Should guests wish to incorporate team building into their hot air ballooning adventure, we are able to arrange a venue. Breakfast is available to all corporate ballooning guests, and is enjoyed at the Glenburn Lodge. Here guests may enjoy views of the local Zebra, Giraffe, Wildebeest, Impala, Springbok.
Only Morning Flights
We only do sun rise flights, as that is when the air is most stable and the heat of the day has not come down to earth yet. At this time of the morning, thermals have not yet developed.
How Do We Know When To Fly?
We communicate with Lanseria Airport as well as other local sources in order to establish whether or not it is safe. Many passengers do not understand why we will not fly when conditions seems calm on the ground. However, it is important to remember that conditions metres off the ground differ from what’s happening up in the air.
Our pilot communicate with Oliver Tambo weather station the evening prior to a flight. And again approximately two hours prior to the flight. They will then call once on the launch site and check with Lanseria Airport prior to take off. They will then inflate a helium party balloon to check that the direction and speed is correct.
