Hot air ballooning is a must-do when visiting Morocco, and although only a few cities like Marrakesh and Fez offer such flights, it is an unforgettable and breathtaking experience. The most notable one is arranged by Ciel D’Afrique in Marrakesh.
The hot air balloon flight starts at dawn, so you can enjoy the experience of watching the sunrise.
The flight begins slowly but as it flies higher and higher you can slightly see the sun start to rise in the horizon.
By this time, the hot air balloon is at a high altitude and the clouds start disappearing to leave room for the sun.
The sun is fully up by now and you can start watching the Atlas Mountains appear in the background afar.
The silent flight slowly hovers over the many picturesque landscapes of Marrakesh.
After about 1 hour, the hot air balloon starts to descend.
The landing might be a little scary, as the basket lands horizontally, but Ciel D’Afrique are experienced and have been operating such flights since 1990.
By now, you can watch the balloon deflate and fully take in this spectacular experience.
Now, it’s time to get on the 4×4 to head over the tribal tent, and enjoy a massive delicious Moroccan breakfast.
The breakfast is held in a traditional Moroccan tent, and is made by women from the nearby village.
