You can’t go wrong with this enchanting aero adventure that relies on the Archimedes theory of impetus for moving elevation. It will give you an extraordinary bird’s view of Uganda’s most significant wildlife estate, Murchison Falls National Park, a Big 5 destination covering 3,840km2.

You can enjoy uninterrupted views from the comfort of a spacious basket of the balloon; You will see wild acacia trees, forests of Borassus palm trees, grazing elephants, a stunning sunrise, racing giraffes, and miles upon miles of rolling mountain ranges. 

This early morning trip will allow you to discover the park in a completely new light. You will behold a refreshing perspective of the thunderous rapids of the River Nile, a dramatic tip of the rift valley, lush rainforests, ocean-blue lakes, and a never-ending savannah park from this vantage point. The icing on the cake is watching the edge of a sheer escarpment overlooking the river and its natural aquatic beauty.

The weather is beautiful for much of the year and hardly turbulent. As such, you will feel completely safe as you enjoy a feeling of peace—while floating along at the same speed as the wind and meeting all sorts of birds.

The captain is charming and gracious and has over ten years of experience in Aerology. He is good at identifying winds and managing them in a way that allows the balloon to make vertical and horizontal navigation. Best of all, he is well-informed about nature.

He will manage to hold your attention with some astonishing stories and unexpected and thought-provoking facts about different spots of Murchison falls and National Park. There is a story waiting to be told about wildlife at every corner you will be passing over as the balloon drifts.

Though the ride lasts almost an hour, the time flies by and leaves many wanting more! A real champagne bush breakfast in the middle of the park. There is a special aura around this experience.

You will leave refreshed, invigorated, and relaxed.

In brief, the adventure is well organized, safe, and fun. The work the owners do in the community is very inspiring. You can tell everyone takes great pride in their work!
