See the world from a very different perspective
It's 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.
Sip fine champagne while hovering gently above the tree tops of the beautiful Magalies River Valley, or drifting majestically high above the Magaliesberg range, 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 Bill Harrop's new, traditionally exquisite and beautifully appointed Pavilion and Restaurant, where you'll be filled with the warmest of memories.

On arrival you will be given your flight ticket and enjoy a hot steaming cup of coffee, while you watch the staff inflating the balloons and watch an African sun rise, take pictures and enjoy the atmosphere.
Time to lift off! The staff will escort you to the balloon, climb into the basket and after a safety briefing lift off and enjoy the flight and scenery while quietly floating above the Magaliesberg Mountains.
After a safe landing enjoy a glass of refreshing sparkling wine to celebrate your flight while the crew pack up the balloon.
The crew will drive back to the Pavilion for a hearty breakfast, during the meal an award ceremony will be held and you receive your certificate.
Freshen up and drive back to the city.
Arrive back at your hotel in Johannesburg.
Warm winter clothing is essential to keep you warm for the coldest part of the day at sunrise. Once you take off, the sun, excitement and probably the champagne will soon warm you. Closed walking shoes (no high heels or open sandals) are recommended.
