Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

This experience was a waste of money and horribly frustrating. The pilot, Tony, was not communicative or professional. Leading up to the flight he lied about many things. Just a few examples are saying we were the only people flying in the balloon that trip but then another 3 people showed up for the flight. He also told these people they would fly alone. He told us there was 18% VAT added for paying by card but told the other people there was no additional fee.

He confirmed 3 times before the day of the flight that we didn’t need a driver (we were on a self-drive trip) only to tell us at 5AM the day of the flight that we needed a driver or we wouldn’t be able to get back to our car.

We awoke at 0445 to be on time because he was very clear about being prompt. He then proceeded to be 3 hours late.

During the flight we hit 2 trees and a ground bush because he was on his phone and not paying attention. We didn’t see any animals because we were either too high to make anything out or crashing into the ground.

Despite attempting to discuss all the communication issues and flight issues we experienced, Tony remained very disinterested and rude. I very much recommend saving your money and trying a balloon ride with a different company elsewhere.

Expérience malheureuse.
Organisation inexistante : non respect des réservations, le premier arrivé monte dans la nacelle.
Aucune règles de sécurité :n’hésite pas à embarquer des passagers en surnombre.
Dans notre cas décollage tardif qui aurait du être refusé par le pilote avec pour résultat un atterrissage en catastrophe du au vent avec quelques contusions…. Ça aurait pu être encore pire!!
De plus ils ont utilisé notre véhicule pour ramener les clients précédents et ont cassé l’embrayage.
Aucun dédommagement ni réparation proposé par un responsable agressif !!!
Expérience à éviter à tout prix !!!!

Early morning Balloon flight booked with ease, company easy to contact and kept in touch day b4 and on the day of flight, ensuring we go there ok.

UWA staff totally unhelp, we needed access to park at 6am, Day before UWA staff tells us not allowed in until 6:30am, we ask another staff member same day same time, they said 7am earliest, Very mis leading and incorrect.

Luckily we gave the pilot a ride to the entrance to help us enter, and even he had issues with the staff who initially refused entry unless we gave money, This is bad practice and Uganda Wildlife Staff need to vetted and stop this harassment and hustling for money, Pilot had an MOU for entry from government, we had 1 year pass, yet they continued to disturb us.

However the Pilot dealt with this and the flight was enjoyable, although little wind but nevertheless a great experience.

While driving in 4X4s on safaris is an exciting way to find and photograph wildlife, the view from above is completely different and spectacular. My (grown) daughter and I took an early morning ride with Dream Balloons and totally enjoyed the experience.

Customers need to remember that balloons have limited maneuvering options, heavily dependent on winds. If the wind is blowing a certain direction, that is where the balloon will go. While we were not able to reach the Falls on the morning we went up, this did not diminish from the excursion. Once we landed and got back in the 4X4, it was fun seeing things at ground level that we had seen from above.

The Pilot and crew were very professional and gave us a great ride.

Dear Asholzer, you have greatly described our hot air balloon experience, we do love to show our clients everything in the park and as much as possible our pilots try to use the different levels of wind to their advantage but tracking animals is not really part of the balloon activity. glad you enjoyed the balloon experience, please do post some pictures if you like for your trip.

Actividad totalmente prescindible. Un timo, 300 dolares por persona. El globo tan apenas se elevo, casi podíamos ver las hormigas. No nos dieron ningún recibo cuando pagamos y cuando reclamamos nos dejaron por mentirosos. Una verdadera verguenza.

Dear guest, what you say is totally untrue, your agent we have been dealing with them for three years and all receipts are sent to them when they ask for it. 300$ is the cheapest hot air balloon in the world please do check other places worldwide. regarding seeing ants. I'm sure you must have been using your binoculars upside down because the other clients on your same flight managed to see all the animals from tree top level. best regards

Morning Balloon safari in Murchison falls national park
Drove to a certain point on the northern part of Murchison falls national park and got on the jet or Balloon to get set and fly over this entire national park within minutes we were dropped off down at delta for the colorful breast fast in the wild , drive through this Palm dotted vegetation. Here in Murchison Falls National Park, you begin your journey into the soul of Africa. It is a journey defined by evocative stirring of all your senses at all the same time. It sparks to life with the roar of lions, and the laugh of hyenas, then experience the heightening of these senses, when you feel the ground vibrate of giant elephants cross right in-front of you, never to be forgotten sights and safari moments.
Enjoyed the wide range of wildlife in the Nile valley for the best of iconic and unforgettable safari moments in Murchison falls national park. As you drive around watch the plentiful herds of Uganda cobs, heartbeats, water bucks, buffaloes, giraffes with spectacular view to watch some of beautiful and playful birds of Murchison falls.

This morning my daughter and I went on a sunrise balloon ride with the bush breakfast. Our flight at 7 am was delayed to there being a mist over the whole of the safari park. Instead Bonny took us on a short safari to pass the time looking for Leopard as requested by myself. Sadly we didn’t find any but enjoyed seeing elephants instead. We went to the landing site around 7.30 and they started blowing up the Air Balloon. Everything went very smoothly, we had a safety briefing. We set off into the mist and sadly to start with the visibility was really poor. Anton our pilot went up and down, up and down but every time we went up visibility was very poor. They did explain to me that normally the mist disappears when the sun comes out but on this occasion it didn’t go. Because of this Anton persevered. Him and his team pointed out giraffe, elephants, a bird nesting in the top of a dead palm
Tree, they completely tried their best to make the best of an unfortunate situation. And then the mist cleared and we had good views looking out over the savannah. I believe it was the longest flight they had ever done (over 2 hours) and we travelled over 20 kms. The landing was great and my daughter and I really did enjoy ourselves. She is only 16 and had a discount on the flight with the bush breakfast.
We had a long drive back but Bonny kept us entertained with information on the Park and the animals.
We pulled into the campsite area for our breakfast - beautifully displayed and presented by Paraa Safari Lodge overlooking the Nile.
I have read the comments from
Other travellers and from my side I must say they were extremely helpful. I made a last minute booking and they went out of their way to accommodate myself and my daughter. Yes it is a lot of money but as far as I am aware so is every balloon ride. The stillness when you are flying is amazing. There were vast areas where there were no animals but when you did see them
To see them from the air was wonderful.
I would highly recommend Dream Balloons Uganda it was very special and a lovely way to finish the holiday.

We went on a balloon ride with these guys as the final surprise for my wife on our honeymoon and it did not disappoint. Magical.

The cost does add up, by the time you factor in park entry fees and accommodation within the park, since you can not enter the park early enough in the morning. But as a one-off, we don't regret spending the money. And from what I've read, it is a good price compared to competitors in other places.

You get amazing views of the park, and get to look down of herds of animals running across the plains. Of course, what you see is very much down to luck!

We didn't have the breakfast as it seemed quite expensive!

The duration of your trip and where you end up is very much down to luck as well, as it is entirely dependent on wind speed and direction, but the staff were really friendly and professional.

The manager was also very kind and gave both of us residents rates, even though my wife's work permit was still being processed.

I did this balloon safari with my husband for his birthday and he loved it !
it's quite an expensive activity ($300 per person for the trip or $380 per person for the trip + bush breakfast) but the landscape from the ballon are breathtaking !
the tour lasted one hour, which is finally really short, time flies when you have fun !

my husband unfortunately forgot his jacket inside the balloon and we couldn't go back there to pick it up (regarding our itinerary).
Our guide arranged to have it back later on in Kampala with one of the balloon crew: Bonny. It turns out that Bonny didn't answer to our phone calls for days and kept the jacket in the Murchison parc.
we were quite disappointed to see the poor service.

To summarize it's a good activity but don't forget anything over there, you will never see it again !

A group of Four of us had booked this for $380.00 each expecting a thrill and an African adventure with a difference. It just turned our like a simple float in the air in a basket. The scenes were ok with no instructions/guiding or prompting. The ride was only around 50 mins. The guys were nice but the ride is not even worth half the money. We felt like being ripped off and l would have felt OK for half the charge each but $380 each its tooooo expensive. Should have listened to trip advisor comments but l wanted that first time experience and it turned out completely uneventful. Waste of money. A boat ride along the river for 10% of the cost is more thrilling than this ballooon safari. Save your money.

Dear Narendra, Thank you for your valuable comment, of course it would have made a great difference if you had researched a bit about hot air balloons, their prices world wide, and probably gone through our website which explains with pictures what you are expected to receive for the amount paid. We actually promise our guests a smooth, safe ride in a floating basket in the air, with no bumps, scares or acrobatics, so as I read from your post, our team has in fact delivered everything we promise. Please note Pilots are not tour guides, they are professional trained hot air balloon operators whose main concern is your safety, no different from aeroplanes. The $380 is by far the cheapest amongst most of the countries that charge up to $650 for the 50-60 min flight, and the main reason is the cost of fuel used, just like a 50 min jet ride would cost almost the same price worldwide. Unfortunately comparing a hot air balloon that uses 270 Kg of LPG Gas to a floating boat ride that consumes 5 Liters of Petrol is totally unfair and unreasonable, besides you never mentioned the bush breakfast which you don't get when you do the boat ride, I'm sure that was a unique experience not found anywhere apart from the African Adventure. For your particular interest I would greatly suggest you try the wild water rafting in Jinja which I'm sure will provide the expected thrill. Thank you again for your valuable comment.
