This is a must do activity whilst in Marrakech! We got picked up from our hotel at about 5:30am then had about a half hour drive into the desert. We were greeted with croissants and Moroccan tea and given a safety briefing.
The hot air balloon ride was phenomenal, we would really recommend trying to get onto the first flight of the day so you get to see the sunrise
The staff were absolutely amazing, and we felt safe at every single point.
Once we’d landed, we went back to the base for a tradition Berber breakfast which was amazing.
We would do it again in a heartbeat, it was fantastic

What a great experience.

We organised this trip through our hotel and it is one we will not forget.

Saber our guide calmed our nerves and explained and showed us where to go at every point.

Once we climb into the basket ( flat shoes and trouser recommended) and on board our pilot Pierre again explained what was happening and he also relaxed the nervous passengers with information and reassurance. the baskets which where sectioned off so 4 people in each section which helped so no one was crowed and each had the same views. The sunrise was out of this world and one which we will never forget
Once safely on the ground a buffet
breakfast within tents was laid out which
gaves us time to reflex on our experience.
A certificate was also given out for you to keep.
Saber had also taken photos videos from the ground which he sent to us that same day which was fab.
I would highly recommend this trip for anyone.

From beginning to end this was a great experience. We opted for the early pick-up which came promptly and our guide Saber was friendly and polite. We were driven to the launch site and given a briefing before getting to our balloon. Saber took some pictures as we took off. The experience lasted about 1 hour and the only disappointment was the cloudy sky - which was obviously nobody’s fault. Despite that the experience of floating up into the clouds was amazing and the pilot was very entertaining. Saber met us on the ground for more pictures and then took us for a very generous Berber breakfast. I can’t fault the experience and the guide made it all the more better. Highly recommended.

From the start to the end the whole experience was nothing short of absolutely amazing. We were picked up at our hotel by Jeep and taken out of the city, the set up was lovely we were offered drinks and we all sat around in a beautiful tent. We were taken over to the balloons while they were being inflated and even that sight took my breath away because of the scale. The flight was 60 mins and watching the sunrise amazing just a few clouds in the sky but it didn’t diminish the experience. We landed and the jeeps had followed us to pick us up and take us back to the tent for breakfast and to collect your certificates. They have toilet facilities which looked clean and tidy. We were offered to have a short video for 300 mad by two young guys it was well worth the money the quality is brilliant and because they use a drone the images you get you could never get yourself. Even though my husband doesn’t like heights he loved it as well if in two minds just go for it you’ll honestly not regret it.

The preparation of the balloons by an extremely professional team is a show in itself. A show that takes you into an almost virtual reality and lets you know that you were right to get up so early!
But this is not virtual, this is your reality of the day and it is a chance to be there.
The flight is both soothing and exciting.
To touch the water vapour of a cloud is an unimaginable feeling.
Seeing the sun rise from a balloon as to be experienced and cannot be told .
Just do it, it's an amazing memory to share with your loved ones.
Thank you Ciel d’Afrique!

What a fabulous start to the day. Such lovely staff to greet you on arrival, all with smiles and hellos making you feel relaxed.
It was amazing being so close up to the balloon as it started to inflate and climb into the sky.
The Pilot was superb and told you everything you needed to put you at ease and the staff helped you get into the basket.
Taking off was exhilarating and smooth and before you knew it we were in the sky and seeing the sunrise.
Brilliant all around and all supported with Saber making it a magical experience.
One tick off the ‘Bucket List’ but would recommend to everyone to give it a go and trust me, you are not cold up there.
Thanks to Saber and all the team for making the start of the day PERFECT 😍

I don't even know where to start with this review. From our early morning pick up, watching the balloons inflate, flying, landing, breakfast and everything in between this was the most beautiful way we could have spent our 1st day on honeymoon. All of the staff were wonderful, friendly and welcoming but special mention to our driver and guide Saber who was relaxed, helpful, friendly and added a personal touch by capturing our wonderful moments on camera. If you are visiting Marrakech this is 100% a must do activity. Thanks for the memories x

What an amazing experience from start to finish. Sabre picked us up at our riad on time and with a smile. A short drive later we arrived at the camp and witnessed the balloons filling. Our hour long flight was amazing with views of the mountains and landscape below. Sabre offered to take photos and even provided us with a short video of our take off. Our pilot Pierre was experienced in personable and made our flight extremely smooth. Sabre was there when we touchdown to drive us back to camp for a lovely breakfast. He was a lovely driver and guide and made our experience exceptional. We would highly recommend this to anyone staying in Marrakech

Pick up - awaiting us and on time.
Travel in vehicle to site comfortable and safe - driver was kind and smiling.
The balloon ride was well organised, and entirely safe m. As with most air flights , the main source of difficulty is on take off and on landing. Both were negotiated with professionalism and felt entirely safe.
The ride was of good duration and the drone video supplied within 24 hours was both unique and off great quality / well worth it!
Definitely a trip to enjoy!!!!

Absolutely worth the early waking up.
When you arrive there is friendly staff who welcomes you with Morrocon tea and coffee.
There are bathrooms available,and you can watch an instruction video on screen.
The preparing of the balloons is spectaculair to watch.
And once you get up in the air it is breathtaking ,it is so beautiful and quiet.
The driver of the balloon was very friendly and comforting to the ones who are a bit scared.
When you get down there is al lovely Berber breakfast waiting for you with fresh fruit orange juice tea en eggs etcetera.
I loved the ambiance of the place and the superfriendly staff.
If you want to ride a balloon i would definitely book at Ciel d Afrique you wont regret it.
Afterwards Saber send me pictures he took from the ground as your balloon is lifting up.
That was very nice.
Thank to the staff for this amazing experience and especially to Saber.
