Bill Harrop’s ‘Original’ Balloon Safaris

Its sunrise, the silence of flight is punctuated only by the occasional blast of the powerful burners and the faint call of a bird or animal far beneath. The thrill is indescribable…

You’re sipping fine champagne while hovering gently above the tree tops of the beautiful Magalies River Valley, or drifting majestically high above the Magaliesberg range in the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage site, just 45 km north of Johannesburg’s northern suburbs, a region boasting some of the best ballooning weather in the world. The exceptional peace of this unique and almost supernatural view of the world will forever remain as a truly cherished memory. After landing, savour a delectable and generous champagne breakfast at the well established, traditionally exquisite and beautifully appointed Clubhouse, Pavilion and Restaurant, where you’ll be filled with the warmest of memories.

A hot air balloon flight is a perfect corporate entertainment or team building activity. If you like, you can arrange to have the ballooning launch site and the base restaurant decorated with Company banners, flags and bunting or displays. Flower arrangements maybe? We also have electricity at the restaurant in case you wish to operate any A.V. equipment. Live music can be arranged from a harpist or a string quartet to a real jumpin' jazz band. Contact us today to book your balloon safari – an absolutely unique and inspiring way to view the world.
