    Balloon Safaris start in Queen Elizabeth National park

    Mweya Safari Lodge in Queen Elizabeth National Park has announced that they partnered with Balloon Tours (U) to offer early morning balloon safaris over sections of the park.

    Balloon safaris will be offered in Queen Elizabeth National Park from Mweya Safaris Lodge. The take-off point is approximately 10 kms from the Lodge, near one of the salt lakes.

     Maximum capacity will be 16 people to begin with, and a later addition of a 24 people capacity balloon will be added.

    Prices start from around $380 per person, and include a bush breakfast prepared by Mweya Safari Lodge and last approximately an hour. It’s time we get a new perspective of the incredible landscape that is Queen Elizabeth National Park’.

    The balloon company was, when starting up in Uganda, mired in controversy over their full mouthed statements that they offer ‘East Africa’s finest hot air balloon safari’ while adding elsewhere ‘The first and only hot air balloon safari in Uganda or East African region’ which saw scorn poured over them as the first such commercial hot air balloon trips took place way back in the 1970’s out of Keekorok Safari Lodge in the Masai Mara, which no doubt remains the most exciting form of hot air ballooning in East Africa when above the great herds of wildebeest and zebras during the migration time. Since then have several balloon operations been operating in the Masai Mara, from several take off points as do for the past 20 odd years balloons take off from the heart of the Serengeti every morning (weather permitting), leaving the Ugandan balloon company as a clear late comer.

    That notwithstanding, now that exaggeration has been established as a tool to get into the news, it is Uganda’s first such commercial operation and tourists coming to Queen Elizabeth National Park will be able to enjoy another attraction, at a rate which is around 100 US Dollars cheaper than similar flights in Kenya or Tanzania.
