Hot Air Ballooning in Namibia
If you’ve wafted aloft in a hot air balloon, you know what a thrillingly singular experience it is. And if you’re familiar Namibia’s reputation for heart-swelling scenery, you can be sure that a balloon jaunt over its oceanic deserts and rocky landscapes will forever sparkle in memory.
Micato guests and staff are zealous about this easily arranged airy outing; our Pinto family, ballooning fans from way back, report on their experience as follows:
“We took to the sky,” Joy Pinto writes, “and soared at sunrise over the dunes, desert and salt pans, gasping in amazement at the lofty mountainous shapes and luxuriant widening landscapes changing colors in the rising sun. We’ve made myriad spectacular balloon flights over game-rich South Afri-can veldts and East Africa savannahs, but the scenery here is much more dramatic, and in many ways, more breathtaking. During the champagne breakfast that followed the flight, we were surrounded by remarkable beauty in every direction.”
