De Hoek Country House’s ballooning adventure

Air Ventures Hot Air Ballooning

De Hoek Country House
The weekend of 14 – 16 December has been set aside for De Hoek Country House’s ballooning adventure weekend, in conjunction with Air Ventures Hot Air Ballooning.  The exquisite Magaliesberg mountain range, where this country hotel is situated, is an ideal area for this activity. 

Weekend guests taking advantage of this event, will be welcomed to De Hoek on Friday and after their welcome, will be briefed by the balloon pilots on the weekend’s activities.  Once everyone’s appetite for adventure has been whet, guests will be treated to one of De Hoek's signature dinners. 

Early morning Saturday sees adventurers gather on De Hoek's lawns at dawn to enjoy coffee and home made rusks before the ballooning gets underway.

When the hour of ballooning is over, the hotel chefs will be waiting to serve a sumptuous breakfast.  The rest of Saturday morning is at leisure.  A light lunch precedes optional boules, archery or other on site activity before high tea and the evening's five course meal with wine pairing.

A leisurely breakfast will end the weekend for guests on Sunday morning.

At a cost of R9, 995.00 per couple, all inclusive, the De Hoek Ballooning Experience is an indulgent adventure.

Due to the success of previous Ballooning weekends, De Hoek’s luxury suites will be in demand.  To book or make an enquiry,  call 014 577 9600 or email
