December is the perfect time to experience adventure with family. The timing is perfect; parents have closed shop from their daily rat race, children have wrapped the academic year and holiday options and activity are plentiful.
Throughout the year, individuals and families plan what they’ll get up on their month-long breaks and aside from an island holiday or visiting a quaint coastal town, or perhaps even taking a turn to the more natural side of life by taking a camping trip, one item that is worth the experience is a hot air balloon experience in Cape Town. Whether you’ve given it serious thought or not; there’s something spectacularly magical about the notion of hot air ballooning, of cruising across the luscious landscapes of our beautiful land, of looking at the world and at life, from a different, panoramic view.
The silly season has made its timeous arrival again and this time last year, we touched briefly on why a balloon experience in Cape Town would indeed be a welcomed addition to the festivities for your family.
Before you worry about the safety and restrictions for children on hot air balloons, we would like to recap on the following recurring question from parents;
Can kids fly in a hot air balloon?
Kids and adults alike can enjoy hot air ballooning, subject to the following safety precautions:
- Passengers must be able to stand for the duration of the flight.
- Passengers must be able to enter and exit the basket without assistance.
- Kids under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
- Passengers with health issues should best consult their medical doctor prior to booking a flight.
Children may not find the ‘historical monuments on the guidebook as interest in the Mother City. Taking them on a hot air balloon ride these December holidays could earn you serious brownie points as a parent and help the family create ever-lasting memories before year end.
