“Spectacular Balloon Flight with Awesome Views of Hartebeespoort Dam and Magaliesburg Mountains”
Thanks to DSTV for a wonderful prize awarded to me to experience with my Loved one. We arrived at Bill Harrops at 5am on saturday morning excited, nervous and ready to be whisked away on a dream come true. Hot coffee and biscuits were ready to warm us up while we watched the Balloons being prepared for us. Everything was expertedly prepared. Tracy our flight Pilot instructed us on our takeoff and landing whilst we were warmed by Gas Flames in basket. After our liftoff we floated in clear skies enjoying breathtaking views, floating along birds, quietness and company of our fellow passengers. A definite item to be put on a bucket list of daring experiences. Quite highly priced so you have plan if you want to experience. We floated for an hour taking in Magaliesburg Mountains and Hartebeespoort Dam. On our landing we were braced on what to expect with the winds directing us to a safe landing spot. Tracy landed us safely on golf course in Magaliespark resort. We enjoyed Orange Juice and Champagne for others as we did not drink to calm nerves if need be. We were picked up and returned to be treated to full breakfast and great company to relive our Wonderful experience. Thanks to Tracy and Bill Harrop for the excellent service and awarding us a Citation For Bravery. Definitely a must to experience.

Tracy is a great pilot, and although I shall share this with all our staff I shall make a point of singling her out for her inimitable grand performance. She is very professional, and I will bet you, all she will say, with that wry smile of hers, “just doing mi job ” (A job in which she unreservedly loves to share the wonderful experience of hot air ballooning.)
Now, proudly pin that Citation for Bravery up on your wall for all to see!
