The crew got off to a late start, the weather was not ideal for flying. Pilot made lame jokes. Some scenic views. Breakfast was good.

I adore the sensation of flying the balloon, at first I was apprehensive with the landing and also because I"m a woman and went by myself, but it was perfect. I booked trough the hotel lobby, and 5:30 AM the pilot came to pick me up (it can be the driver) we arrived in the meddle of nowhere in the... More

And quality of our flights, 1 hour in the moroccan sky over Jbilet mountains, flying as high altitude as possible (max 1000 meters), with Top quality balloons we... More

I really enjoyed the lead pilot, Hicham Zrikem, he was so friendly and professional, he had a great deal logistically to deal with as he had us up soaring over the rocky desert. I really enjoyed this, but think next time I will do it over France where there is more to see below.

The balloon ride was supposed to be for roughly an hour but only lasted about 25-30 minutes. I know weather and air quality is a factor for these things, but it was seemingly a great day, I think the problem was that the crew got off to a late start and so we had to finish early because the air...

Our hot air balloon ride from beginning to end was memorable, breathtaking and definitely unique. The Ciel d'Afrique team was amazing and extremely gracious throughout the entire process. All of the logistics were smooth and well-planned, from the pick-up at our hotel to the post ride breakfast under a beautiful Moroccan tent. Compared to other hot air balloon companies in... More
