Hot Air Balloon Safari Uganda is one of the best romantic Uganda safaris packages for travelers especially couples on honeymoon safaris.
Hot air balloon safaris are not one of the popular activities undertaken by tourists but offer such a great experience and are much recommended especially for honeymoon travelers.
Murchison Falls National Park is the top destination for hot air balloon experiences. Balloons for the hot air experience come in many shapes and sizes, most of them are regular cone-shaped balloons and the size is quantified with the amount of air the balloon can carry. The bigger the volume of air, the more weight the balloon can hold and thus the higher number of passengers it can accommodate.
At Murchison Falls National Park, Dream Balloon operates with a medium-sized balloon that can accommodate 8 passengers. This suits small groups, honeymooners, wedding proposals, and private tours. The balloon can flight to up to 10,000 ft above sea level.
For the hot air balloon safari experience, you are taken to the launch site in the wildlife side of the park by around 5:00 am. Here you have the briefing on safety precautions, rules, and regulations as you get ready to board the balloon and the team makes final preparations. Once aboard, the pilot will launch for set off and the blowing wind will help the balloon rise to several feet off the great then soar above the treetops.
While above the ground, you will have an experience of having an aerial view of the savannah below teaming with all kinds of wildlife including large numbers of animals that crowd the banks of the Nile River.
The experience takes about 1 hour then you land on the ground. After the experience, you finish off with bush breakfast which is also another experience.
