Hot air balloon safaris and tours in Namibia: in Sesriem/Sossusvlei area, Swakopmund (Atlantic Coast) and Damaraland. Hot air balloons is our specialty.
1. Namib Desert (Sossusvlei flights): Namib Sky Safaris. Unforgettable and most beautiful experience in the Namib Desert. One of the most special tours conducted in the Namib desert. Safaris are conducted every day before sunrise from Sesriem .
The flights are weather permitted.
The duration of the flight is approximately one hour.
A spectacular launching and take off as the sun rises over the world's oldest desert. Your destination will be the wind-swept red sand dunes of the Namib. Soar with the winds over the ocean of sand and mountains, endless sea of shadow and light.
One of the reasons that flights are conducted in the mornings is that a balloon is very sensitive to wind and heat. In Namibia, the only time it is possible to fly balloon is one hour after sunrise in summer, 2.5 hours after sunrise in winter. It is impossible in windy conditions or on very hot mornings (more than 30°c). (The difference between the outside temperature and inside the balloon envelope being approx. 70°c). A pilot cannot steer a balloon, it goes with the wind at the same speed. He can just control the altitude, and according to the wind channels found, the direction preferred is chosen.
Transport back to your accommodation is included in the price.
Passengers staying in other establishments have to
be at departure point on time to join the tour.
