Suncatchers balloons

Every good weather morning at sunrise, our balloons depart from our launch site near Hoedspruit. 
Come aboard for the experience of a lifetime.


We have been offering one hour long flights over the scenic, Lowveld section of the Blyde River, West of Hoedspruit since 2003. The terrain is a mixture of farmland and private nature reserves at the foot of the Drakensberg Escarpment. Although it is not a "big 5" safari flight, this location has proven to be the most popular in the Hoedspruit area and in the Lowveld, for that matter.  The Escarpment forms an amphitheater at this location, providing safe shelter from the prevailing winds. Having experimented with different areas in the Lowveld, we have come to the conclusion that this area offers the very best in terms of safety, accessibility and scenic splendour. More than 10 000 passengers have now enjoyed scenic flights here.

(HAZYVIEW: discontinued)

As from 17 October 2014 we do not accept any more bookings for flights from the launch site near Hazyview, Over the past three years the weather in Hazyview has forced us to cancel too many flights, leading to disappointed passengers and frustrating the travel agents and booking agencies.
