Safari Enquiry

One of the most unique and impressive ways to experience Namibia’s stunning landscape is from the basket of a hot air balloon. Visualize yourself floating above the vast plains of Namibia, taking in the stunning scenery from above.

The best way to enrich your Namibian safari and acquire a new viewpoint is to take a hot air balloon ride.

One of the best ways to see Namibia is from above on a hot air balloon ride, and Sossusvlei, in the southernmost part of the Namib Desert, is a perfect place to do just that.

The sand dunes in this area are well recognized as among the highest in the world. Taking a hot air balloon ride above Sossusvlei is a great way to see the desert in all its glory and to see the sand dunes transform as the sun rises.

Etosha National Park, in Namibia’s north, is another great spot for a hot air balloon tour. Tourists can see the park’s many animals, such as lions, giraffes, and elephants, from the air on a hot air balloon ride.

The Etosha Pan, a large salt pan and one of the park’s most breathtaking sights, attracts thousands of migratory birds every year.

A hot air balloon ride above the landscape in Damaraland is an unforgettable experience. Damaraland is characterized by its rugged landscape, which consists largely of deserts but also of rugged mountains and deep valleys.

On a hot air balloon flight over Damaraland, you can take in the stark beauty of the region and see desert wildlife like springboks, elephants, and lions.

Burners and flames, pictured here in the Namib Desert, make hot air ballooning possible.

One of the most memorable ways to see Namibia is from above on a hot air balloon tour. Your Namibia safari will be greatly enhanced by taking a hot air balloon ride so that you can see the landscape from a new perspective.

So, if you’re looking for something truly unique and exciting to do in Namibia, consider booking a hot air balloon ride.
