About Bill Harrop's Original Balloon Safaris
Bill Harrop's "Original" Balloon Safaris. If you're going to do it, do it in unassailable style. It's sunrise. The silence is only punctuated by the occasional blast of the powerful burners and the faint call of a bird or animal far beneath. The thrill is indescribable. Picture yourselves sipping champagne as you hover gently above the tree tops, or soar high above the mountain peaks. After landing, savour a delectable champagne breakfast at our well established, traditionally exquisite and beautifully appointed Clubhouse Pavilion and Restaurant where you will be filled with the warmest of memories.

No words can adequately describe the world class experience we had at Bill Harrop's Original Balloon Safaris. From the moment we booked up until the end of our ballooning experience, we were in awe at the amazing service and incredible crew. We plan on bringing family and friends to Bill Harrop's Original Balloon Safaris to delight in the most amazing ballooning experience!

This is definitely something that I can recommend for ANYONE. Young, old, couples, single, everyone will enjoy this magical experience. The crew are also extremely helpful and the pilot made our journey memorable with all his jokes and playfulness.

I surprised my partner with a balloon ride. I knew that she has a fear of heights, but still went ahead and booked. The way that Bill's crew welcomed us and prepared us for the excursion put us at ease, and my girlfriend was relaxed and even looked forward to the experience. And what an experience!! I recommend a balloon ride with this outfit to anybody who ever thought about it and/or has it on their bucket list. Thank you very much Bill and crew. Many happy ascends and landings!
