Hot air balloon safari
Details of Hot air balloon safari
While on a trip to Murchison Falls, strongly consider hot air ballooning as one of the things you should not miss out. The Murchison Falls National Park offers a great diversity of wildlife, powerful waterfalls, amazing flora and the Nile.
Hot air ballooning at the Murchison Falls National Park will reward you with remarkable views of the shy, road avoiding animals, waterfalls from above, lake Albert and Victoria Nile. If choosing the morning flight, indulge in a tasty bush breakfast with champagne.
The service and experience are equal in the Queen Elizabeth National Park, offering spectacular panoramic views and great photographic opportunities of the park and its wildlife. Observe playing chimpanzees in the canopies of the trees, flocks of most colourful birds, volcanic features, and perhaps even primates. A tasty breakfast awaits you in the bush upon landing here as well.
Flights are just low enough that there's no significant change in temperature so plan to dress for the 'ground' temperature. Remember to bring your camera and binoculars!
Short OverviewUnique aerial views of the magic below. A magical experience of silence surrounding the balloon... Quite surreal. Soar high at daybreak and enjoy a champagne breakfast in the savannah upon return. Or go for a sunset balloon flight that promises the most romantic sunset views ever.
There are two locations for hot air ballooning - at the Murchison Falls National Park and the Queen Elizabeth National Park.
A company, certified and licensed to fly by Ugandan Civil Aviation operates both locations. Experienced captains with over 1000 flying hours, top of the notch balloons and regular inspections ensure a safe flight. You will fly as high as treetops and ascend to approximately 700 – 800 meters. The flight lasts from 45 minutes to one and a half hours, depending on the wind conditions and the fuel onboard. One balloon can carry 16 passengers.
