A great experience to discover and then repeat! The Ciel d'Afrique teams, locals & experienced pilots, give you a professional experience, adapting the activity to the conditions. Our departure was not on the 5 a.m. slot but was picked up at 6:30 a.m. Due to the wind, we had breakfast before our departure for the start of the flight around 9am. At first disappointed not to have the sunrise, in the end we had more visibility over the valleys in the second session, so the view was great! All the teams are very friendly, from the service, to the technicians, drivers, photographers and an excellent Daniel at the piloting & explanations. Brilliant first in a hot air balloon.

What a fantastic experience. Our guide Saber picked us up at the meeting point and drove us to the balloon site. He explained everything to us and looked after us brilliantly throughout the whole experience. The ballooning was amazing, Jacques our pilot was a real character, see if you can ask to be in his basket, although he only speaks French. Breakfast after the flight was delicious. Saber then dropped us back to where we had met him. A great adventure, highly recommended.
