I would have loved to have given everyone the prize but unfortunately that was impossible.
So I asked the computer to pick a winner for me.
And the lucky winner of the Hot Air Balloon Experience for two
with Bill Harrop's Original Balloon Safaris is...
Enjoy your prize Ketna!
There are few experiences more magical than floating in a hot air balloon over a scenic valley as the sun rises. As you drift lazily with the wind, enjoying the panoramic views, the early morning serenity and tranquility is punctuated only by the occasional chirping of birds and the frequent burst of flames into the hot air balloon. You glide over tree tops and float over mountain bikers and sprinting rabbits and you feel a sense of contentment that few other activities can bestow.
It was a magical and surreal experience, one that had been on my bucket list for years. I couldn’t believe that I was finally doing it and not just with any balloon operator. Our charming pilot was the original Bill Harrop , who has been flying people on magical balloon rides since 1981. He entertained us with amusing anecdotes as he expertly navigated the gigantic balloon through the sublime surroundings. After a soft landing an hour later, we celebrated with drinks as we were awarded “citations of bravery”, personally signed by Bill. Read more here.
I am now giving away a hot air balloon experience with Bill Harrop’s Original Balloon Safaris, over the beautiful Magaliesberg area. The prize is worth over R5000 and includes a hot air balloon experience for two and a delectable freshly-cooked breakfast in the Clubhouse Pavilion and Restaurant overlooking the beautiful Magaliesberg Mountains, after landing.
