It was an amazing hot air balloon experience. A peaceful trip, informative and great breakfast included. I was a bit disappointed that we did not go over the dunes. If you do want to experience the dunes I recommend the aeroplane trip with Desert Air. Good value for money and you go right into the dunes.

Our balloon trip was the last activity before we had to return to reality. The father and son team provided a memorable experience over the spectacular dunes. To cap it off, they provide a big communal breakfast!

Absolutely one of the highlights of the trip to Namibia. From the booking process through to the experience itself, everything was painless and could not be improved. Collected before sunset you watch the sunrise from the air, and part of the magic is you don't know where the wind will take you. Watching the wildlife silently from above is certainly... More

This really was a lovely way to take in the amazing landscape. A very well organised and professional team, felt totally safe. The balloon flight was of course special, followed by a fun champagne breakfast feast. The whole experience was a joy.

It was a great experience flying over the dunes in the early morning with a amazing breakfast in the dunes afterwards. Everyone should do it!

From pick-up, to lift off, to landing in between the dunes of sossusvlei! What an incredible experience! Our pilot Manny was informative, funny and light hearted, and brekkie at dune 1 was delicious! Will definitely be back!

To celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, a balloon ride over the Sossusvlei dunes (which was on our bucket list) was just the thing! Our pilot Manie was the ultimate professional and was absolutely wonderful. Knowledgeable, entertaining and a fantastic pilot, he landed us so gently that I hardly noticed. The views were spectacular and while the price is a little... More

For my birthday my husband booked a surprise hot air balloon ride during our stay at Kulala Desert Lodge in Sossusvlei. I have never been up in a hot air balloon and didn't know what to expect. The entire experience, from start to finish, was incredible beyond words. The vistas of the dunes below us were breathtaking. We lifted off... More

What a great experience this was! We were picked up super early in the morning and transferred to the balloon departure site. Our pilot explained that we could potentially have a "boring" normal landing or depending on the wind, a "sporty" landing. 16 people to a balloon, two balloons go up together. The pilots are in constant communication with each... More

A great way to end our trip to Namibia. We were lucky enough to have a day with quite strong but not too strong winds so they managed to fly for the first time for a few days and the day after they wouldn't fly. We ended close to Dune 45 so got the see a lot of the area.... More
