Hot Air Ballooning in the KZN Midlands

"Suddenly the wind ceased. The air seemed motionless around us. We were off."

Views of the Summerhill and Hartford Estates whilst Hot Air Ballooning above the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands! This is just one of the many unique experiences Hartford can arrange while you are staying with us.

"Suddenly the wind ceased. The air seemed motionless around us. 
We were off, going at the speed of the air-current in which we now lived and moved. Indeed, for us there was no more wind; and this is the first great fact of spherical ballooning. Infinitely gentle is this unfelt motion forward and upward. The illusion is complete: it seems not to be the balloon that moves, but the earth that sinks down and away..."

- Alberto Santos-Dumont, My Air-Ships, 1904.
