Ballooning over the Namib desert is one of the most beautiful experiences one can possibly have on a Namibia trip. Because of the strong thermal movements over the desert, the start has to take place at dawn.The quietness that embraces you after the balloon has risen, is captivating. At the height of a hundred feet, one drifts quietly over a sea of dunes. The first sunrays dip the desert into a magic warm, reddish light.
