Rwanda Hot Air Balloon Safaris Akagera National Park

Rwanda Hot Air Balloon Safaris Akagera National Park: Get the chance to soar the skies of Akagera National Park while relishing aerial views of its verdant Valleys, sweeping savannah plains, Lakes, wetlands, and rock formations during early morning or afternoon balloon flights. For 60 minutes, you will be able to appreciate the beauty of Akagera National Park and its wildlife species, followed by bush breakfast (for the morning session) and champagne toasting (for the afternoon balloon flights). Afterward, get your flight certificate handed by expert pilots. Royal Balloon Rwanda operates two hot air balloons that can accommodate 4 to 6 guests.

The Hot Air Balloon climbs as high as 100m to 1000m above the park’s scenic savanna-covered landscapes inhabited by the big 5 – namely, elephants, rhinos, lions, leopards, and buffaloes – and other vast species of wildlife. This balloon safari experience includes a bush breakfast and post-flight celebrations for the morning flights while the afternoon flights include champagne popping and post-flight celebrations. This adventure is one of the unbeaten ways of exploring the natural beauty of Rwanda’s only savannah-dominated National Park (Akagera) while taking in the magnificent views of the peninsulas, Hills, and scenic views of the Lakes with wildlife species.

From the take-off point at Kayitaba (which is only a 5-minute drive from the southern gate), participants are first briefed on the activity they are about to enjoy. Make sure to converge by 5:00 am to start the balloon flight at Akagera National Park, although the time can be adjusted according to the prevailing weather conditions. The briefing is mainly on the safety guidelines to be followed and is done by the flying crew. Balloon flights in Akagera National are a must-do tourist activity for adventure-lovers in Akagera National Park. Thanks to the favorable weather conditions, panoramic sceneries, and wildlife species, guests are provided a rare glimpse of the otherworldly ancient landscape. After the briefing, get to see how the balloon is powered by hot and cold inflammation.

As you enjoy a cup of coffee and pastries, the experienced Pilot will be inflating the hot air balloon and you are provided the opportunity to take photos of the process. Later, embark on the basket for the adventure that will allow you to soar through the different landscapes and relish the jaw-dropping views of the Protected Area. Enjoy views of the scenic Lakes that include Rwanda’s second largest Lake (Lake Ihema), different wildlife species such as Masai giraffes, Cape buffaloes, giant elands, African bush elephants, Defassa waterbucks, common warthogs, Rhinos, and many others.
