Hot air ballooning safari with Bill Harrops

A Breathtaking View from Above

See the world from a very different perspective

A Hot Air Balloon flight is something really different - something really special -
with Bill Harrop's Original Balloon Safaris

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.

When making your booking, we will need to know:

The following is VERY important:

  1. FULL NAME (and weight) of each passenger
       (in the event of us cancelling due to bad weather or for safety reasons)
  3. If a GROUP BOOKING, the group leader's name and contact details


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.
