This was my first time in a hot air balloon and it was amazing! I can still smell the Eucalyptus trees that we floated over so peacefully. Thank you Bram & team for an unforgettable morning in Addis!

Going as high as 350M and cruising with complete silence at about 35km/h. Unlike a plane, feeling nature, hearing birds was amazing. Floating low touching tree tops is something everyone should try. Thanks to our pilot Bram, we landed smoothly and safely. It was a...More
