Imagine drifting over the Cradle of Humankind in a hot air balloon

With the faint sound of a bird calling in the distance, matched with the sound of the burner above you, there can’t possibly be a better way to experience the fresh new dawn of day.

The amazing flying experience of a hot air balloon ride is immensely relaxing as you move over the treetops of the Magalies River Valley - boasting some of the best ballooning weather in the world.

Excitement is palpable when rising from the ground - with that feeling slowly being replaced by a sense of peace while experiencing a smooth drift in the air.

From its Skeerpoort base in the Magalies River Valley, Bill Harrop’s “Original” Balloon Safaris takes you over the Cradle of Humankind. And the company is accredited as one of the area’s prime tourist activities by the World Heritage Site.

Bill Harrop’s balloon rides take flight in the peaceful and serenity of daybreak – at the time that the air is at its most unchanging, and the ride is a gentle floating experience. Flights last about an hour and are suitable for all age groups.
