A perfect say to see sunrise over Sossusvlei and view the spectacular shadows and colouring changes of 'The Dunes'. Pilot Tracy has complete control and the staff surrounding her proved efficient as well as very friendly. When visiting Sossusvlei the balloontrip is undoubtedly a must.

Alyhough it isn't cheap it's a once in a lifetime experience. Probably one of the best balloonflights on the planet. The champagne breakfast in the desert afterwards is also top of the bill

Though it isn’t cheap. Do it, you will regret it if you don’t. Magnificent views over the sand dunes in the Sossusvlei. A once in a lifetime experience. Including a champagne breakfast as decadent as can be. A must for any traveler

First things first... this isn't a cheap activity. Quite the opposite. However, it's something you'll remember forever and the service is first class. We were up and away very promptly after our (very early) pick up from our campsite. Our pilot was amazingly adept at...More

An incredible experience; to rise up through the air before sunrise, to drift with the wind, to see the first sunstreaks over the Namib desert mountains, to see how the desert and sand dunes changes during the first light of morning, to watch the shadows...More

For $N6500 there are much better experiences. A ballon flight over the dunes might seem a special experience, but no flying over dunes, yet in some of their marketing states that they do. Great marketing and speeches to get you excited and keep you excited....More

We really enjoyed the 1 hour balloon ride, followed by a champagne breakfast. The views from aloft are very impressive, providing a unique perspective one the Namib desert. It is a bit crowded in the balloon, but the experience is worth while.
