What better way can there be to detox, relax and unwind over the festive season than to spend a morning bobbing through the beautiful skies? With Bill Harrop’s “Original” Balloon Safaris, you can help your loved ones experience the thrills of flight the best way possible- in a gentle, mesmerizing hot air balloon.

Find a whole new meaning for ‘champagne breakfast’

The perfect choice for adventurous couples [or great friends], your ballooning experience will kick off in high gear with a pre-dawn cuppa at the launch site. Whisper in excitement to each other, or make some great new friends, as you watch your stylish ride slowly fire up below you. Hop on board- be sure to give an ear to the safety talk, too- and get ready to see the world in a whole new light. You’ll drift slowly through the skies as the spectacular African landscape unrolls below you and the sun creeps into appearance over the horizon. Once you bounce back to earth, you’ll have a celebratory bottle of champagne waiting to help you celebrate your flight together and a scrumptious breakfast spread to seal the deal.

Amp up the experience

That’s not all that awaits you, though! Make this the experience of a lifetime with some select add-ons to catapult this into the ultimate dream gifting package. We’ve scoured the best of the best from our partners to ensure your flight makes you memories you’ll never forget. Jump-start the romance with a cosy overnight stay at the Entabeni or Mabula Private Game Reserves the night before your flight. Dinner under the African stars before your morning flight lets you explore those same staggering vistas for yourself. Meet some of Africa’s iconic animals up close in a game drive, then watch them from the eagle-eyed skies as they make their way back from a night of hunting or out for a morning’s foraging. Magic awaits you at every turn- now is the season to embrace it.
