A once in a lifetime experience. We loved the peace and serenity as we glided through the skies above sunrise, sand dunes, and unparalleled views of the Namibian Desert. Dennis our pilot was a great guide - he and his colleagues made us feel like they’d just laid the event on for us and our co-guests - not just another day “at the office” for them! Concluding with an “active” landing and superb desert champagne breakfast the day was stunning. Not cheap but well worth every Namibian dollar!

This was an A M A Z I N G Experience!
Flying over Sossusvlei was like a fairytale 🧡 It was beautiful, exciting and fun!
The very luxurious breakfast in the dessert is also a really nice highlight of this event.
Loved every moment of this flight!
Thanks Denis, Tim, Ivo and all other crew members!

Very skilled pilots take you on a flight over the desert. The awesome, and very friendly team behind all this makes it even more joyful and somehow a must if you’re in the area.
It’s been my second time flying here, and it definitely won’t be my last.

This was an unforgettable
Experience to celebrate our daughter’s 21st birthday. I didn’t go as I am scared of heights but the family reported that it was amazing. There was quite a long wait at the beginning but once air borne the views were amazing. A champagne breakfast added to the experience as well as a special mention for our daughter’s birthday. Thanks team

Absolutely serene. The whole operation, from preparing the balloon to the ride itself and then the champagne breakfast, everything was so sleek and smooth. Our day started off with tea, coffee and some light snacks before heading off to the launch site. The “sky boys” are incredibly friendly and excellent at their jobs, having the balloon up and ready in no time. Ruan, our pilot was extremely skilled and knowledgeable of the area and its surrounds. The service he provided was unmatched and his whole persona was so kind and friendly. The entire ride was so peaceful and calm, with plenty of time to take in the picturesque landscapes and animals below. The champagne breakfast was incredible with a wide variety to choose from and plenty to go round, even better was the location amongst the dunes. The whole experience was amazing and I would highly recommend spending the extra money in indulging in this experience as it is a once in a lifetime opportunity and you will not be left disappointed. Thank you Ruan and the sky boys!

Sensational. Great welcome, so friendly, professional outfit, spot-on pilot landed on the trailer! Brilliant breakfast, super souvenir shop, sponsored local school, everything good about the place, even super-clean toilets - very posh! Marvellous photos epecially as there was a little fog when we took off. Great shade and light.

We thoroughly enjoyed the balloon flight experience over the Namibian desert - best way to enjoy the stunning landscapes! We were very impressed by the professional and well organised staff right from the most friendly welcome by Dennis at the check in station, transport to take off, safety information and accurate landing right onto trailers! It was interesting watching the balloons being inflated and then so enjoyable taking in the spectacular views of the mountains and sand dunes as we floated across the desert at sunrise and beyond.
After landing we were treated to a delicious champagne breakfast (our own tables set with white linen tablecloths) and wonderful buffet! There was homemade zebra salami from Dennis' neighbour plus his Mum's marmalade jam along with an abundance of fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, cured meats, pickled fish, cheeses, croissants, fresh bread and pastries.
The incredible views and exceptional service from a very skilled team made for an amazing experience we'll remember for a lifetime!

If you are in the area, this is a must do experience. A highlight of our Namibian road trip flying over a stunning landscape with a highly professional outfit. We then enjoyed a delicious breakfast spread in the middle of the desert which feels surreal. Whole thing very well organised and to top it off this company is involved in a local charity providing schooling for kids of tourist staff working in this remote area. They also sell goods produced locally with profits going to the school.
Safety is paramount as explained by our pilot and by the company via their website.
