With this classic flight experience, you will share it with other passengers. The program starts with round trip transportation in a 4x4 with no more than 4 passengers; thereby, avoiding a long morning round trip in Marrakech collecting clients from different hotels, Riads, or private addresses. Guests are collected from any location in Marrakech except from the Riads in old Town (Medina) where a car is sent as close as possible with car access. Precise pick up location and time is confirmed the afternoon before the flight. It is not possible to come directly with your own car as the location of the airfield is in the ''bush'' with off road track access only. Transportation with 4x4 is included in the service.
After about 40 minutes of driving from downtown Marrakech, you arrive at Ciel d'Afrique Airfield where you are served Moroccan tea. For about 20 minutes, you will see the preparation of the balloons that will be flying that morning. All Ciel d'Afrique balloons are green and red (the colors of Morocco), and purchased new from the factory (no old advertising balloons or used ones finishing their lives in Africa). You board, receive a short security briefing, and take off with all of the Ciel d'Afrique balloons.
You are served champagne during the flight in your private compartment. No champagne can be offered to kids less than 18 years old. First part of the flight is at high altitude to have an overview of the whole area (Jbilet Mountains, Marrakech, and Atlas Mountains in the background). Second part of the flight is at low altitude over typical villages, farms, kids going to school, valleys, etc.
After 1 hour of flight (not 20 minutes like others), you land and get picked up by the pursuit 4x4 cars. You are driven through the ''Moroccan bush'' to the caidal tent where you are served a typical Berber breakfast. You will be served 2 types of typical Moroccan pancakes (Msemen and 1000 holes), traditional bread, boiled eggs, olives, honey and olive oil, Moroccan tea, coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. The breakfast is for about 30 minutes. No special dietary option is available. After breakfast, you get your flight certificate and are driven back to your residential place in Marrakech.
