Reviews from previous customers
“As a balloon pilot myself I had more than a passing interest in the experience Drakensberg ballooning had to offer. I was impressed with their operation. Daniel proved himself to be a highly capable pilot. This is a family run business and they take the experience they give their customers seriously. The friendly welcome, faultless flight, crowds of excited children on landing, champagne celebration and excellent multi-choice home-prepared breakfast at the end all made for a brilliant experience,” wrote Philip1516 on their TripAdvisor page.
