I accept the terms and conditions

For the safety of our passengers, we have closed the Cape Town operation due to the unpredictable weather conditions.


The Mother City, as Cape Town is affectionately known, continuously brags about an endless list of exciting things to do, now including a hot air balloon experience. On the ground level, Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world – imagine what it will look like from the air!

Air to Air Africa is excited to announce that hot air ballooning in Cape Town is the new hottest thing in the Western Cape – and we are bringing all of the fun! We have secured a beautiful launch site between Stellenbosch and Paarl, just off the highway, in an area known as the Joostenberg Vlakte.

We provide transport to and from the launch site and you will enjoy a gorgeous hour-long flight. Afterwards, you will be spoiled with sparkling wine (as is our tradition) and breakfast back at the venue.

More about the Joostenberg Vlakte

The Joostenberg Vlakte lies just outside Cape Town, beyond Durbanville in the green dividing line between the Mother City and Paarl. You could consider this ‘countryside’ with the convenience of being close to Cape Town.

Most of the homes are small holdings and enjoy the proximity to the Winelands region, Paarl, Stellenbosch and Durbanville. Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are also close to Joostenberg Vlakte.

On our hot air balloon rides in Cape Town, you will experience breath-taking panoramic views, the rolling vineyards of the Winelands and the beautiful agricultural developments of Cape Town and its surrounding areas.

Just imagine, a light breeze blowing, green hills, the ocean with pristine beaches and Table Mountain in the background with Devil’s Peak and Lion’s Head on either side. What better way is there to celebrate the Mother City?

Hot air ballooning in Cape Town is best experienced on cooler days as this ensures the optimal flight conditions. Wind can be quite a challenge for hot air ballooning, especially in the Cape, but on cooler mornings, it creates the perfect weather conditions for smooth sailing. With cooler and smoother air, there is less chance of wind, rain or turbulence which equals a beautiful balloon ride.
