Drakensberg Ballooning

Glen Gray Farm, Winterton, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa


Business Details

Drakensberg Ballooning based in Winterton offers scenic hot air balloon flights over KwaZulu-Natal with panoramic views stretching from the Amphitheatre in the Northern Drakensberg to Giants Castle in the Southern Drakensberg.

Maybe it has something to do with the curves of the earth, but looking down from a hot air balloon makes one feel very small. Early morning, sunrise, the incredible silence is only occasionally interrupted by the blast of the burner and the occasional shrill cry of a bird.

The excitement is incredible as you float above the earth with the majestic Drakensberg on the horizon.
