“Once in a lifetime experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

I organised a private hot air balloon trip with Airtrackers with the intention of proposing to my girlfirend while we were in the air. Airtrackers were totally discreet about the trip and didn't give the game away till I popped the question. They arranged for us to be picked up from Ivory Tree Lodge, a private balloon trip, post flight bubbly and snack and a lift back to the lodge.

We had a excellent pilot called Marty for our flght. Marty is highly experienced and provided an excellent air safari. He kindly took a few photos of the actual proposal for us.

There was plenty of space in the basket for me to drop to one knee btw.

Airtrackers provided a professional and excellent service, from booking to the flight itself. I would highly recommend them.

“Wow wow wow -4 hours later and I can cross this off the bucket list!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

From the moment we had completed our "reccy" to Bakubung Gate( to make sure we wouldn't miss our flight and pick up and 5am) to the time we stepped on board our flight was surreal. The Pilanesburg NP offered the most amazing views from the "Air Trackers" hot air balloon flight with many breeds of animals and bird life evident below. Even the drive to the middle of the National Park offered some amazing animal spotting at close quarters, elephants, kudu, giraffes, zebras and much more. The competent pilot of our flight had completed some 6000+ hours so we knew we were in good hands, both in the air and of his knowledge of what lay below. After an hour of low flying we descended to ground level to the welcoming arms of the ground crew who ably gathered our balloon in no time at all. The champagne on landing added to the ambience of the whole mornings event. Our flight over it was back to the Bakubung Lodge for an good old English Breakfast - even here we were welcomed at the gates by a herd of zebras, gracefully grazing. Certificate of flight in hand it was departure time from the park.
The care and attention to detail of Air Trackers made this a most memorable experience for us both. Highly recommended as a different way to experience the wonders of Africa.
