The balloon ride launches beyond the dune belt and man’s first form of flight promises exhilaration and exquisite views of the Namib Desert, Swakopmund, and the dunes. On a clear day the view is endless. After the balloon rises slowly to its magnificent and tall stature, the burners begin to roar and the balloon you become airborne. The world slowly slips away and you are carried off by the wind. No words can describe the feeling, you just have to experience it yourself. All too soon it’s time to land, and back on terra firma you are whisked away by your host for a champagne breakfast in the sunshine, reliving the experience of man’s first form of flight.
Note: It’s cold in the desert so you need a warm jacket and a hat or cap.
