Hot Air Balloon Safari in Murchison Falls Park: A safari in Uganda is not complete unless it includes a Hot Air Balloon Safari. Murchison Falls National Park is one of the parks in Uganda where you can take a traditional sunrise Hot Air Balloon Safari.
Murchison Falls National Park is said to be the largest protected area in Uganda and has so much to see when it comes to nature – the great diversity of wildlife, the powerful waterfalls, and not forgetting the famous River Nile.
The hot air balloon flies over the sprawling Savannah, the River Nile, and Murchison Falls as the sun displays its morning glory. You will see wildlife from above – elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, antelopes, lions, or Leopards on the hunt without obstruction.
0500 hours: The trip begins with a drive to the launch site for the hot air balloons somewhere near the luxury Paraa Safari Lodge or the mid-range Pakuba Lodge. While here, you will be able to watch the assembling team do last-minute preparations like pumping air into the balloon before you could soar high during daybreak.
You will be given a briefing on the safety precautions, rules, and regulations as you get ready to hop aboard the balloon. Once aboard, the pilot will launch for set off and the blowing wind will help the balloon rise to several feet off the ground and soar above the treetops. This will give you an aerial view of the Savannah below teaming with all kinds of wildlife, including large numbers of animals that crowd the Banks of the great Nile.
At the end of this amazing hot air balloon tour, which normally takes about 1 hour, you are handed certificates that confirm your participation in this activity, and then later, you finish off with a special bush breakfast and a bottle of Champagne all organized and provided by the commis chefs from the Paraa Lodge.
From there, you will carry on with your morning with a game drive around the park and then return to your lodge/ camp. (On Request only) there is also a sunset balloon flight that starts exactly at 4 pm however; this one does not come with any special offers like the bush meals after the ride.
Note: only 8 passengers are permitted to fly up in the balloon. The age limit for a Hot Air Balloon safari in Uganda is a minimum of six (6) years considering that the flight takes you to a height of 10,000 feet above sea level which might make younger children quite uneasy.
