Mount Grace partners with Bill Harrop to offer Ballooning Safaris
For many people ballooning is a must-do on their lifetime bucket list. From the excitement of the ascent at sunrise coupled with the silence punctuated only by the occasional whoosh of gas, and utterly spectacular views, ballooning has enthralled people for more than 200 years. Few places in South Africa could be better suited to ballooning than the magnificent Magaliesburg and the team at Mount Grace couldn’t agree more.
A new offering to the already-impressive menu of luxe experiences and activities at the five-star country hotel is a ‘stay and fly’ package. The excursions are operated by well-respected local company ‘Bill Harrop’s Ballooning Safaris’ that has been operating in this area for many years. Well known ballooner Bill is passionate about the sport and shares his vast knowledge and enthusiasm with each of his passengers.
Guests may choose from a variety of balloon safari packages, from a trip following the course of the Magalies River Valley to game viewing safaris in the Northern Province and Limpopo. Safaris range from 30-minute to 60-minute flights or longer for pre-arranged bookings.
The new Bill Harrop Safari Package at Mount Grace includes dinner, accommodation, your choice of balloon safari as well as breakfast and starts at R4000.00 per person.
The perfect addition to a romantic weekend, the ultimate surprise and certainly a lifetime’s must-do, a balloon safari over one of South Africa’s most pristine areas coupled with the luxury of a stay at Mount Grace will be stored in the memory banks for many years to come.
