Our Hot Air Balloon Pricing

Flying a hot air balloon is weather-dependent, so we cannot guarantee a date of flight but our hot air balloon price is the same all year around.

Payment Options

1. On receipt of a 50% deposit via EFT or bank deposit, you may choose another date of your choice with no additional costs for ONE year, from date of purchase.

A 10% penalty plus service fee applies if you ask for a refund.

2. Credit card authorisation and a photocopy of the front and back of your credit card is required if you request to limited date. This will be held as security to confirm a booking.

You will be charged on date of hot air ballooning experience or for a no-show, unless our pilot cancels due to weather. Should a cancellation-due-to-weather occur, you may call us to reschedule a booking for another date or your ticket will be deleted off our system.

3. Open-dated gift voucher tickets require full hot air balloon price payment upfront and are valid for a year from date of purchase.

Please phone to confirm availability on a date of your choice.

Excessive weight(s) if over 85kg x 2 = 170kg, will incur an added cost.

Reason for the additional hot air balloon price related to weight

The hot air ballooning basket is insured to carry x passengers regardless of weight but the manufacturer determines the weight each balloon can carry and the passengers’ space available.

If an incident occurs Civil Aviation looks at the weight on board, being the first cause of this incident and then accounts the incident to pilot error and the irresponsibility of the operator which nullifies the insurance policy we carry. Due to this factor we will have to fly less passengers on your date of flight.

Hot Air Balloon Rides Physical Consideration

All passengers must be capable of standing for the duration of the flight and enter and exit the basket unassisted.
If there is any question regarding your physical health limitations, please consult your doctor and advise the Air to Air Africa team of your concerns before confirming a booking.
We will do all we can to accommodate prospective passengers. We consider it unsafe to fly when pregnant or diagnosed with any form of brittle bone disease. The pilot in charge of the hot air balloon rides must make the decision and has the right to ask you not to participate in this particular flight due to the wind conditions, which may cause a bumpy landing.
