HOT AIR BALLOONING

We can do a scenic Drakensberg flight from, Champagne Valley , close to The Nest Hotel

All the balloons launch at dawn so either you have to get up at “sparrows” or you need to find accommodation close by, we can advise you on that. The balloon flights include coffee and biscuits before the flight, champagne or fruit juice afterwards, and breakfast back at the launch site. The flight itself is about 45 minutes to an hour.

Champagne Valley balloon is R 2750 per person sharing.

Hot Air Ballooning – The important Stuff 

  • When: Sparrows, all the flights are at dawn so think about staying over somewhere.
  • How many in one basket: From 3 to 9 (including the pilot, he really needs to be there!)
  • How far in advance do I need to book? As much as possible, at least two weeks.
  • Is there an age limit? Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult, no children under 4 unless an exclusive family package.
  • Is there a weight limit? Yes – 125 kg

HELICOPTER

Come see parts of this spectacular world heritage site, few others have seen. Based at Cathedral Peak and Dragons Peak, take a scenic Drakensberg flight for fifteen minutes or one hour helicopter flight, sip a glass of champagne on top of the peaks, or enjoy a high altitude picnic lunch.

Fly to the battlefields in Northern Natal and get met by a guide who will tell the story or get flown to a number of golf courses in the area.

Let your imagination fly and we’ll take care of the rest.

Helicopter flights – The important Stuff 

  • When:  Any time in daylight.
  • What to wear:   It doesn’t matter, something comfortable though.

BATTLEFIELD TOURS

The battle of Isandlwana was the largest defeat the British empire had ever felt. More has been written about this battle than any other single engagement in the history of South Africa. One of the reasons for this is that the true story will never be told as all the British soldiers who stayed until the end were killed. Zulu reports suffer from inaccurate translations and from the time lapse between the battle and their recording.

Join us for a flight from Durban North through to Isandlwana lodge where you will be taken on a tour of the Isandlwana battle field in the morning and Rourke’s Drift in the afternoon with lunch at the lodge.
