Suncatchers balloons

Every good weather morning at sunrise, our balloons depart from our launch sites near Hoedspruit and Hazyview. 
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.


"Balloons Over Africa", established and developed by the Roberson family, has been offering Hot Air Balloon Flights in the Sabie River Valley since 1998. Suncatchers Hot Air Ballooning is fortunate and honoured to have taken over the operation of this respected enterprise in July 2011. We aim to continue their flight operations in the fine traditions that they have become known for: We offer scenic hot air balloon flights in the beautiful Sabie River valley, near Hazyview in Mpumalanga. Hazyview is a small town situated about halfway between the southern section of the Kruger Park, and the scenic attractions of the Northern Drakensberg escarpment.
