"Balloon Trip over Sossusvlei"
The champagne breakfast was far more exotic than I expected with everything from smoked salmon, to home made pancakes and jams. Excellent." Read more about this whole safari

"Balloon Flight over the Namib Desert"
We were almost late due to a problem with our pick up (they went to the wrong lodge), but we made it just in time.
I liked the fact it wasnt too crowded-the basket held 16, and there was plenty of room.
The pilot ,Astrid, was amazing, and took us up to 900m, and then down to just a few metres above the ground, and rotated the basket so that everyone got a good view of everything from all directions.
We actually didnt see much wildlife-a few springbok, oryx and ostrich, but the scenery was wonderful.
The flight lasted about an hour and was followed by a very good champagne breakfast.
Pricey, but an unforgettable experience." Read more about this whole safari
