It was a bucket list item and everything and more we anticipated.
We has an amazing experience: beautiful landscape and great breakfast
Excellent. Very professional service and great end to the trip
Fantastic experience and very friendly staff.
OMG so wonderful. I would encourage anyone to do this instead of the dune hike in the morning.
Was called off due to bad weather - received a Refund quickly and without fuss.
Surreal and splendid. It's very expensive, but our one splash out overall. The breakfast was lush... white table cloths etc... One side note, it really was a 'white experience', the only time that I did feel a little uncomfortable due to a racial divide. I can't see any way around it and I am sensitive to this kind of thing. But, just so memorable.
Great experience, recommendable
This was a great expereince even though the winds were light and we did not go that far. Captain Ray gave us a wonderful trip. One of the highlights of our tour. Logisitics worked well Max: Stunning to see the sunrise on the mountains and dunes from the balloon.
Everything was great. Pick up on time. Great balloon pilot(or whatever they're called). Delicious breakfast in a beautiful setting.
Although extremely pricey, well worth doing. On my reserved date it was too windy to fly - and the next day was sold out but they could offer me their departure the day after. If this is to be the highlight of your trip be sure to stay enough days to allow for weather cancellations. The flight was exceptional, the breakfast buffet gourmet, the staff friendly. Worth the cost and one of my best memories of the trip
No words can describe this! Brilliant. It was so good to see they are supporting the community, we were fortunate to be able to visits the little bugs school and buy some crafts made by the ladies we saw there.
Amazing experience. The company was very efficient, confirming the booking the day before, picking up/droppingoff, the quality of the breakfast exceeded my expectations. The flight itself was smooth and the pilot seemed friednly and experienced.
Amazing experience and the views of the Namib desert out of this world. The champagne breakfast was a surreal experience.
Unfortunately we couldn't take off due to the weather conditions. Refunding was already done when we returned home. Excellent service!
The trip was nice and the planning went excellent
AWESOME!!!!! recommend this!!
In my mind I pictured that we would be landing in the sand dunes, which in hindsight is crazy, because how would you get the balloon back. We took off a good ways away from the dunes and landed very near the dune field. We got a very unique view of the wildlife, floating above them, and got spectacular views of the dunes. Don't do this as a replacement for heading into sossusvlei however. Make sure to set aside a morning to drive to sossusvlei.
This was a fantastic experience for the whole family. We highly enjoyed it and the brunch to follow was well done and lovely. I would also make sure to let those doing this that they have access to the park (I knew this) and to make sure they get a stamp on their ticket to enter and climb Big Daddy and Dune 45. Good times.
Wonderful experience...perhaps inform people that the balloon does not in fact travel over the dunes or sossusvlei or deadvlei for that matter?
The whole trip was excellent from the on-time collection to the great breakfast. The balloon ride was amazing and the company felt very professional and safe.
Favorite thing we did!
Stunning and very well organized activity. Another major highlight of the trip for all of us.
This experience was fantastic! Dennis was our pilot and beyond doing and expert job of it, he was remarkably facile in at least the three languages of the passengers on board. The breakfast we were served surpassed my experience with such events in other countries.
A Highlight. Very efficiently run and keen to ensure that everyone enjoyed the experience
Absolutely incredible! Will remember forever! Great pilot! Great team!
Just loved it - everything we had hoped for. Very efficient service to get airborne and then the pilot brought it all to life. The views were outstanding - saw game from the air which was a surprise. After a 1 hour flight we landed and had a brilliant breakfast in the desert. This lived up to all my hopes for a big treat as it is expensive.
Glad I booked it and glad the weather allowed to take the tour.
Fantastic experience! Incredible views, amusing pilots and huge Champagne breakfast.
Excellent, met all expectations
We enjoyed this activity very much!
We liked this activity. It has been fantastic fly above the desert. We thought to fly above the dunes and we thought to fly for 2-3 hours. Instead we flied only 1 and half hour and we observed the dunes from too far. The breakfast has been luxurious, very very nice.
A highlight of the trip! Spectacularly beautiful and so excited to be floating high above the dunes. And the champagne brunch was exquisite.
One of the best experiences of my life! I highly recommend doing this (if you can afford it!) as it is a once in a lifetime experience. The pilot (Dutch fella, can't remember his name!) was very good, extremely knowledgeable about the area and good fun, while being at all times very professional.
Great experience, albeit a little bit pricey. The captain was very experienced and ensured that we had a very enjoyable trip. Breakfast in the riverbed was excellent.
Spectacular. What can one say, out of this world, mindblowing.
Excellent trip. A highlight of our holiday.
Eric, the manager, is a man that worths knowing. The experience is awesome. The breakfast in the middle of the desert is unrivaled, no hotel is able to bring such a good one from their kitchen to the restaurant.
Excellent experience and highly recommended.
Amazing! Expensive but well worth the money. The breakfast afterwards was great too.
Oustanding exeprience. First class all round.
I worried that this might be a rather commercialised experience after seeing the `crowds` (by Namibian standards!) at Sossussvlei, but it was a fantastic experience. Well-run (balloons were half inflated when we arrived), fantastic experience and the breakfast afterwards was really nice.
Excellent,le vol comme le personnel.
Great morning in the balloon over a stunning landscape-good crew and breakfast,again excellent!
Excellent experience. Will recommend it to anyone.
brilliant, owner is a showman
Ballooning unfortunately was cancelled due to the weather, but the lodge staff and Cardboard Box helped us get a refund and suggested an alternative activity: the helicopter trip over the dunes
Just magical! This was our favourite one!
Too expensive, only one hour and we felt we went round in a circle. Didn`t like the atmosphere.
This is great! It was not mentioned though that breakfast with champagne is included on your info. This was a bonus.
Very professional outfit. Again a MUST to do and one of the highlights of our trip. LOVED the breakfast in the desert which was of the highest standards.
This was an experience of a lifetime!!! It was SO special that it is hard to express it`s impact and the wonder of seeing the sunrise over the desert. Paul was a wonderful `Out of Africa` character who did much to enhance the whole experience, including being a marvellous host at the great breakfast provided. The drive back with Sam proved an extra bonus as he was informative and happy to stop anywhere we asked to enable us to take more photos. So glad we did this flight.
Fantastic experience ! Very good organisation and atmosphere. To recommend !
Unfortunately we were cancelled twice because of wind so we missed out on one of the things on our `bucket list`. Talked to the Belgian owners who were very friendly and informative.
Very profesional team, excellent pilot, excellent breakfast as surprise, high service quality, highly recommendable
We still don`t know what we enjoyed the most: if the ballooning itself, or the wonderful breakfast in the middle of the desert close to Dune 1, and the nice and friendly athmosfere with the other `passangers` created by `Air Cowboy` Dennis. Again, too good to comment!
This was the highlight of our trip! Was very good and our pilot John was excelent with passion for his job
If you have never tried, do it at least once in your life.
Fantastic. Our pilot Dennis was entertaining and a wealth of knowledge. The breakfast was fabulous.
Unfortunately cancelled due to very high winds.
The most wonderful experience - the balloon flight and the desert breakfast. Completely professional run set up. I can only highly recommend it to everybody
great experience, fantastic persons and very nice breakfast ;)
It`s an very early flight, but totally worth it. Beautiful! Wouldn`t have missed in my life, and I probably will do it again not long from now. The pilot (Erik), great guy. The flight is really, really, really something that`s a must!
ballooning was a fantastic experience, but pricy!
Very good experience. Wonderful desert breakfast
a GREAT experience
This was an expensive addition, and was a bit of a disappointment due to weather conditions beyond the control of the operators. After 3 days of high winds (2 of which caused the flights to be cancelled) they day we booked was so still that the balloons could not travel. Regardless, enjoyable.
what a great view
This was a very special occasion - we really enjoyed it. The 360 degree view is unforgettable! The breakfast in the middle of the Namib made us feel "rich", haha.....we really enjoyed it!
Expensive but great experience
Expensive, but worth it!
Very efficient and well run. The highlight of our trip. Thanks you
The best experience of our lives!
Great experience - the organisation was O.K. Thanks!
High winds prevented us from doing this, unfortunately.
A great thrill and experience.
one of the best experience in my life! Fantastic - we recommend everybody to try this adventure
What an amazing experience, something that I will never forget. The champagne breakfast in the desert afterwards was awesome.
Great experience. Breathtaking landscapes and really kind pilot. Breakfast in the desert was good
Good, and lucky, no wind that morning.
