"A spectacular experience"
We were taken to the balloon site very early, in time for the safety briefing and to watch the balloons being inflated. There were 16 in each basket , and two balloons, so that we each had a view of the other. The pilot Sanchez came from a family of balloonists and was very experienced and great fun.
The flight over the desert was spectacular, and lasted over an hour, with Sanchez looking for a landing site.
He warned us that the balloon might tip over and therefore showed us how to brace ourselves just in case! As it turned out it was a bit bumpy but no problem.
Champagne breakfast in the desert, what service!" Read more about this whole safari
