Get ready to see Johannesburg's most amazing landscapes during a sunrise hot air balloon ride! You'll go to the Club House Pavilion in the Magaliesburg region (via your own means of transport), where you'll be warmly welcomed. Have a glass of champagne, tea, coffee, biscuits and muffins before climbing aboard the hot air balloon.

The ride will last around one hour. You can take in the magnificent sunrise set against a backdrop of the incredible landscapes of the Magalies River Valley! Go where the wind takes you to discover the region from the air! You'll fly over mountains, farmland and even the famous Hartbeespoort Dam.

Once back on terra firma, you'll be served refreshments and champagne, and your pilot will present you with a flight certificate!
