Hot Air Balloon & Game Drive Thrills in South Africa

Soar in a hot air balloon at sunrise, look for wild animals on a game drive & tour a famous diamond mine on this memorable adults-only Platinum DreamTrip.

About Your Trip

Set off for beautfiul Pretoria, South Africa, for a fully-escorted, adults-only Platinum DreamTrip featuring 3 epic adventures and 3 nights at Kievits Kroon Faircity Hotel, a multi-award-winning country estate.

Your adventure begins by exploring the breathtaking Gauteng landscape from high above on an early morning hot air balloon ride in Dinokeng Game Reserve. You'll witness an unforgettable sunrise and watch in silent awe as the world wakes up beneath you — listen for the faint calls of the birds and wildlife who send their greeting as you float past. Your head may still be in the clouds once you land, where you’ll enjoy a glass of bubbly to celebrate your amazing experience.

And if that’s not enough, the journey continues with a guided game drive in the reserve. There, you may observe some of the planet's most powerful creatures — keep an eye out for lions, cheetahs, elephants, black rhinos and much more! Learn everything about these African animals as they roam freely in their natural habitat.

Wait, there’s more! Your amazing trip also includes a tour of Cullinan Diamond Mine. Opened in 1903, it sourced many important gems, including the world’s largest diamond and rare blue diamonds. You'll make your way deep underground to see the workings of this world-class mine. Afterward, stroll through the mine’s market and shops — the perfect place to pick out a souvenir! 

During free time, relax by the hotel’s sparkling pool or pamper yourself with a treatment at the wellness spa. Or, make your own fun with a hike in the nature reserve, practice your swing at the golf course or do some retail therapy at the shopping center.

What we love:
• Your hotel is the winner of 2018 Best Luxury Country Hotel in Africa from World Luxury Hotel.
• Check out the award-winning wines — as well as the hotel’s own Grand Rouge and Sauvignon Blanc — served at Granita restaurant. Cheers!
• The world’s largest rough diamond was mined at Cullinan Diamond Mine in 1905. It was cut into several stones, including the Great Star of Africa that was placed in the Sovereign’s Scepter of the Crown Jewels in 1910.
• To maximize your enjoyment, download the DreamTrips™ app to access DreamTrips Local — then earn points on dining, entertainment, spa experiences & more at select spots recommended by DreamTrippers just like you!
