Hot Air Ballooning Namibia over the Namib Desert near Swakopmund.
You’ll need to get out of bed early and dress warmly for this Buzz! The Hot-Air Balloon crew will be knocking on your door, about 1 hour before first light, from where they will whisk you out into the desert for a dawn lift-off. You’ll climb above the early morning mists and look down on badlands of the Moon-Landscape and Mountains of the Namib Desert as they are burnished red by the freshly rising sun. You’ll be floating quietly over some of the oldest geological features on the planet. If you’re into chipping rocks or taking photos with a difference… it’s breathtakingly beautiful and a memory you’ll treasure for the rest of your life. Treat yourself 🙂
