Hot Air Ballooning

Hot air ballooning over the Namib or Sossus Desert

One of the most wonderful experiences in the world is drifting in a hot air balloon over the majestic sand dunes of the Namib desert.

This adventure begins early in the morning, before sunrise, you are collected from Le Mirage and driven to the take-off area. Once the balloon is airborne you drift silently over the dunes for about an hour. The views of the Namib Desert are exceptional. On landing (wherever the wind has taken you) there is a champagne breakfast.
After the champagne breakfast you will be brought back to the lodge.
