Ballooning is like a magic carpet ride. While you fly, you do not feel any turbulence as you are travelling at the current wind speed. The tranquility of your flight will give you plenty photographic opportunities and unsurpassed views.
The pilot controls perfectly his altitude, but has no steering wheel. He will control his direction choosing the wind channels he will find at different levels. The ground crew has a permanent radio contact with the pilot. At Sossusvlei, a spectacular launching and take off as the sun rises over the worldâ€™s oldest desert over windswept dunes and the splendor of the desert play-out in front of you as you soar with the winds for an hour over the ocean of sand and mountains, an endless vista of shadow and light.
