Sustainable Tourism

Namib Sky Balloon Safaris really cares about the environment. We strictly adhere to eco-friendly principles; create greater environmental awareness to both visitors and the local community.

Our environmental impact is kept as minimal as possible. The Namib Desert is very sensitive and we make sure while on safari that our team has the most eco-friendly behaviour. All our retrieving vehicles only drive on existing tracks and before returning to the base, we even broom our foot prints…

The balloon base and employees’ accommodation are powered with solar energy and only bio degradable cleaning materials and products are used.

We have our owhn vegetable garden producing all herbs and fresh produces demanding as little water as possible.

Waste management is a priority to us and everything is sorted and transported to recycling companies in Windhoek.

In addition, the local community benefits socially and economically. Our employees are encouraged and sponsored to follow courses that will improve their living standards.

Recently, Namib Sky Balloon Safaris created a trust to help the community in the Sossusvlei area and founded “Little Bugs”, the first Early Childhood Development and Primary school in our area.
