Discover the beautiful northern plains of Marrakech from both sky and ground. After watching the sun rise over the Atlas from a hot air balloon with Ciel d'Afrique, enjoy a traditional breakfast and hop aboard our sidecars and explore the region from ground level. Our insiders will take you off the beaten path into the rocky hills, through villages, and across the mythical palm grove. Please note that your hot air balloon is a shared-ride.

Your ride is tailor-made, off the beaten path and designed according to your level of knowledge of the area and your centers of interests, respectful of the local culture and all inclusive to offer you a memorable experience. As this is a private ride, you set the pace. Your insider will accompany you based upon what you want to see and how long you want to stop. And if you see something you like along the route, just yell STOP!,Your wish is our command. Expect to spend about 70% of the time driving and 30% exploring on foot.

Our rides can accommodate up to 2 passengers by sidecar from 2 to 99 years old. Meeting Point: A chauffeur from "Ciel d'Afrique" will come and pick you up at your hotel at 5.30am sharp on the day of your ride. Start with a hot-air balloon ride and enjoy a traditional breakfast on the grounds before hitting the road by sidecar. At the end of your ride, we will drop you off wherever you like in downtown Marrakech free of charge.
