One of the most popular air attractions is the Airtracker Balloon Safari . Weather dependent, you are collected at 05h00 from your hotel and taken into the Pilanesberg Game Reserve. A good tip is to pile on the layers as the game vehicles are all open in truly South African air conditioning style, and even in summer, it’s a little nippy before the sun rises.For the older crowd, the Sun City Resort offers a number of activities that rely on bravery and the ability to stand great heights.
A short drive through the park to the balloon site gives you the opportunity to spot some animals, and when you get to the site you are greeted with the majestic beauty of the balloons being pumped up with air before take-off. It’s an awe-inspiring moment, as you’re standing in a basket soaring up above the spectacular national park, with the beauty of the African sunrise before you.
From the safety and comfort of the balloon’s basket you are given the chance to spot all kinds of wildlife, perhaps even the Big Five. Upon landing you receive sparkling wine and orange juice and are then treated to a full English breakfast at a private game lodge within the reserve, where you are given a certificate of bravery.
Other air activities include:
• Parasailing at Waterworld
• The longest zip slide in the world
