Hot Air Ballooning over Dunes of the Sossusvlei


Sossusvlei in Namibia is a truly remote and desolate place with stunning landscapes and unlike anywhere else in Africa. Imagine drifting with the wind over the vast Namib Desert. This has to be one of the most beautiful experiences to be had, and one you will certainly never forget. The adventure begins before sunrise, and once airborne and dawn breaks, you will witness the magical and ever changing colours of the sand dunes of the Sossusvlei. The views are exceptional. The trip finishes wherever the winds happen to take you, and ends in style with a lovely al fresco breakfast.

The brand new Nest @ Sossus, one of Namibia’s most extraordinary private villas has been designed using the unique structure of a Sociable Weaver nest as inspiration. Tucked away in a lush valley it backs up against the great escarpment in the Namib Desert. This valley is a true desert oasis, boasting seasonal natural water pools and falls, and this makes it a magnet for the animals moving through the area. A floodlit waterhole provides exciting and varied desert wildlife viewing. The villa has three private en-suite double bedrooms as well as an additional en-suite children’s room, so it can comfortably accommodate a group of up to seven guests.
