3 Day Hot Air Balloon & Wildlife Safari Murchison Falls National Park
We offer Hot Air Balloon Safaris over the Murchison Falls Park plains and at the Falls. The adventure begins just before dawn. Departure is from a perfect natural launch site near Paraa safari lodge, and flames from the hot air balloon burners light the darkness as the crews inflate their craft. The first, pink tongues of sunlight flicker across the skies as the hot air balloon fills, then rises. Suspended in a basket beneath the yellow-green canopy, you’re off for a wildlife viewing adventure with an entirely different perspective. What amazes most first-time balloonists is the absolute stillness: the silence as you float above the plains and the rivers of Murchison Falls National Park.
