Full description

Discover Morocco from the perspective of a hot air balloon. Embark on this thrilling ride above the Palm Grove of Marrakech and its surrounding landscape to see a bird's eye view of the area. Round off your experience with a cup of fresh mint tea and visit to a local Berber house.

Just one hour away from the legendary Jemaa El Fna Square, fly in a hot-air balloon over the beautiful countryside, seeing the amazing contrast between Morocco’s urban and rural areas. After an early morning pickup from your hotel in Marrakech, sit back and relax on the 45-minute drive out of the city to the balloon launch site. Here, receive a full pre-flight safety briefing and have a chance to watch the launch team prepare the balloon for departure. Once in the air, cover a distance between 9 and 15 miles (15 to 25 kilometers), depending on the wind speed, taking you over a local village and the picturesque surrounding areas. The flight will last one hour, and after a gradual descent back to land, head to a local village for mint tea and home-baked bread in a local Berber household. Following tea and bread, head back to Marrakech.

    We are very happy with our experience and our driver Hamada who picked us up from our hotel. He was very helpful and answered all questions we had. I went there with my mum and grandparents. The men who worked with he balloon helped my grandparents get in and out of the balloon basket by lifting them up. I truly recommend it!

    A magical moment with Ciel d'Afrique. A magical moment, a serious company, very professional and friendly drivers, guides, pilots and staff. A driver picked us up first at the hotel, then we were welcomed at the base camp with a bucolic breakfast with lanterns, and after a few minutes of waiting we flew into the air admiring the desert and the Atlas. . We will keep this moment in our memories for a long time and so will we children. Adrien was a very professional and friendly driver who was passionate about his job. A real trustworthy person. On the way back, a second breakfast awaited us before returning to the hotel. Also note the equipment in very good condition, which really inspires confidence. Do not hesitate for a moment!!!!
