Here’s How to Make the Most of Your Hot Air Balloon Experience

If you are someone who loves adventure and trying new things, then South Africa is not at all in short of such activities. With gorgeous shorelines, stunning landscapes, great weather, and marvellous people, we are still an international tourist hotspot. If you live in this wonderful country and want to create that next unforgettable memory, then a hot air balloon experience is one that cannot be beaten.

Whether you are looking for breathtaking views, a peaceful escape from the grind of city living, or just a novel adventure to enjoy, we at Air to Air Africa can help. If you have already booked your flight with us (or if you still plan on doing so), then you will undoubtedly want to make the most of your experience. Here we discuss a few ways to prepare for your hot air balloon ride and soak in the occasion.

  • Wear comfortable clothing. You don’t want to be caught getting too hot or too chilly, so it’s best to wear layered clothing. The temperature before sunrise tends to be quite cool, but the weather soon heats up when the sun greets the horizon. Comfortable shoes are a must as you will need to get in and out of the basket and walk across a field.
  • Cement the memory of your hot air balloon experience by taking a few photographs of the ride or filming it. You could also bring binoculars to view the world down below in more detail. Some passengers enjoy calling someone special during their flight, so be sure to bring your cellphone.
  • Remain in the moment. It’s easy to get so caught up in the excitement of taking pictures and documenting the adventure that you forget just to breathe it all in. Take a moment or two to appreciate the beauty before you and take a mental snapshot of every detail.
