Hot Air Ballooning above Morocco’s Western Atlas Plains
We pick you up, oh so early in the morning, between 5:30 and 6:30 according to the season, from your hotel in Marrakech in a 4 wheel drive vehicle to the launch site chosen for that morning, not far from the famous Palmeraie of Marrakech. Once there, the balloon is prepared for flight – and we hope you’ll take part in the fun – you board your gondola and, on the instruction of the pilot to his ground crew of “lâchez tout” -‘cast off’ – the magic moment arrives as we rise vertically up towards the Moroccan heavens. We are followed by a chase vehicle, in constant radio communication with the pilot whose crew establish the day’s most suitable landing site. Once we have our ‘kiss landing’ – in the worst case we’d have a gentle drag of but a few yards – our 4 wheel drive is awaiting us, and, after we have collapsed and stored the balloon, we shall make a tour of some of the Berber villages we have over-flown, to stop and have a glass or two of mint tea, some Moroccan pastries or fresh bread dipped in olive oil, in the home of one of the Berber inhabitants. At around midday, you will be taken back to your hotel in Marrakech, armed with a Certificate to show your friends or family back home to show them ‘We’ve been there’ and a basketful of delightful memories.
Children 2 – 10 years inclusive benefit from a reduction of 50% when accompanying two adults.
