Balloon Flight Over Blyde River Canyon

Drift silently over the South African veld with just a balloon pilot for company, as the sun rises over another magnificent day in Africa. The expansive panoramas of the Blyde River Canyon’s staggered series of verdant yet precipitous cliffs meld into the grasslands of Kruger National Park, against a backdrop of the Drakensberg Mountains.

Glimpse giraffe feeding in the early morning light, vervet monkeys crashing from tree to tree, and hippos taking full advantage of what the early Dutch settlers to the region named the ‘happy river’.
