Bill Harrop Balloon Safari Featured

BALLOON SAFARI: SOMETHING REALLY DIFFERENT, SOMETHING REALLY SPECIAL If you're going to do it, do it in unassailable style 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. A new departure in the world of ballooning, from Harrop's traditionally exquisite Country Base in the Magalies River Valley in the Cradle of Humankind. Whilst the crews prepare your huge colourful balloons for your flight of fantasy, enjoy a good cup of tea and sandwich on the spacious patios of Harrop's Club. You will be called for boarding and briefing about an hour-and-a-half before sunset which will give ample time for your flight of about an hour before the light fades. On landing, wherever that is, your crews will pack up the balloons whilst you are transported back to the Clubhouse for a complimentary sun-downer. After landing, savour a delectable and generous champagne breakfast at our new, traditionally exquisite and beautifully appointed Clubhouse, Pavilion and Restaurant, where you'll be filled with the warmest of memories. Professional pilots, attentive crew, immaculately maintained equipment, 5 aviation safety awards, make this longest established licensed Balloon Airline in southern Africa the choice of the well informed discerning individual traveller or corporate group. Internationally hailed as Southern Africa's best value, best quality tour operator to be appraised as the winner of the South African Tourism Welcome Awards 2006? Selected as the preferred hot air balloon operator in the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site 2010-2011 promotions. CORPORATE TEAM BUILDING. A teambuilding experience with a difference! In a balloon you are the prisoner of the wind, and you can go only in the direction of the wind. In life people think they are prisoners of circumstance; but in the balloon, as in life, you can change altitude. When you change altitude, you change direction. You are not a prisoner any more. (Bertrand Piccard). MINIMUM NUMBERS: 2 passengers (can be two different individual bookings) MAXIMUM NUMBERS: 146+ (2 to 18 passengers to each balloon).
