  • Enjoy a hot air balloon flight over the Moroccan mountains outside of Marrakech
  • Fly at high and low altitudes for more comprehensive views
  • VIP experience with tea, Champagne, and breakfast included
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at Marrakech hotels
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Marrakech for transfer to the launch site in a 4WD vehicle with room for four passengers; small-group transfers let you avoid long waits for bus pickups. Travel outside of Marrakech, and sip fresh mint tea as the crew prepares the hot air balloon. Each balloon has multiple compartments, but this VIP experience features a compartment that's reserved for your private group alone, and Champagne will be served mid-flight. You’ll fly high above the landscape for sweeping views of the mountains and then drop to a lower altitude to see local villages and farms come to life in the early morning. Touch back down to meet the chase crew for transfer to a Berber tent for a traditional Moroccan breakfast with fresh juice. Finish the day with return transfer to your hotel.

We wanted to try a hot air balloon on our recent visit to Marrakech. While there appears to be several operators in the area, we were unsure who would offer the safest and best option. After reviewing their website, I reached out to Ciel d'Afrique. They quickly replied me and

Dear Guest, Thanks for such a precise and detailed review ! Definitely helping travelers to pick up our ballooning ride for their next stay in Marrakech. At the moment very reduced activity due to the Covid19 so we are running deep maintenance actions ... We hope worldwide tourism will re-start in September 2020 ... wishing you all the best, be safe !

Loved everything about it just only on ething not - its super tiny space and couldn't really actually move around to take pictures (especially when you have instamodels behind your back oh my...) but still enjoyed sunset, it was super romantic and would definitely do it again

Thanks Juliana for your positive feed-back : Would like you ''to definitely do it again'' ! About space : our balloons are up to 4 or 5 passengers per section which are really SPACIOUS and offer plenty of room to move. Having ''Instamodels'' that do not want to move from external side to get the pictures is sometimes happening ... our activity is definitely ''Instagrammable'' and we get a lot of influencers coming to take shoots. They have no more or less rights than other passengers as they pay their space like anybody else (we refuse to take them for free, we have sooooooo many requests !). Best to enjoy an exclusive experience with just you on board is to book a VIP flights (private section just for you) or private flight (TOP VIP or ROYAL Flight). Kind regards
