This Breakthrough Direct Route to East Africa opens up a new Horizon of possibilities for the East African Traveler. Add the convenient East African Visa, and you can travel borderless in most of East Africa, Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda; unfortunately, Tanzania has not joined East African Travel Promotions.
East Africa will benefit from this direct flight to and from the USA, especially Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda, because of the East African Visa and Tanzania. Now Americans can easily access the best of Wildlife, Primates, and adventures in East Africa without spending all day in London, Brussels, Cairo, or Istanbul, or even overnight in Dubai or Doha, but fly straight to East Africa on one of Boeing’s fabulous Dreamliners.
No more connecting flights in the UK, Europe, or the Mideast. Board the plane at JK departing at 12:25 and wake up the next day in Nairobi, landing at Jomo Kenyatta Airport at 10:55 in the morning, where you are greeted with a friendly “Karibu” Welcome. Compare that to the present flight times with stops in the UK or Europe.
Kenya Airways Direct Route from and to East Africa only shows what can happen; others can and will follow. Uganda’s Entebbe Airport has been cleared for such direct flights, and the same applies to Rwanda, where RwandAir has plans for the North American market.
Getting to Uganda has become more accessible.
Take a Direct Flight from NYC to East Africa, where you will be in New York on day one and day two; you are spending the night in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda or in a lodge overlooking a crater lake near Kibale Forest, which is the best Chimpanzee Destination in East Africa.
Such flights open up new Horizons where you take a 1 1 /2-hour flight to Kigali, Rwanda land and continue to Mgahinga Gorilla Park or Bwindi Impenetrable Forest upon landing. Take a one-hour afternoon flight to Entebbe, Uganda, and that evening you take in the starlit African skies of Uganda.
The endless possibilities for East Africa due to this direct route to and from the USA are endless. You can take in the Masai Mara one day and trek gorillas two days later; you can end your African Safari with a trip to the Kenyan coast or Zanzibar, Climb both Kilimanjaro, Mount Kenya, and the tallest Mountain Range in Africa, the Rwenzori Mountains of the moon.
Explore Uganda and Discover the Pearl of Africa
Uganda is the Premier Primate Destination where you can trek Gorillas – Chimpanzees – Golden monkeys in a safe and secure environment and where gorilla permit prices remain 600 USD. At the same time, in neighboring Rwanda, they are 1,500 USD meaning that the most expensive Tourist Activity in Africa remains within greater reach of the average person.
Uganda is not just home to Primates but to the Big-5- home to Kidepo Valley Park, Africa, as it used to be 50 years ago. Add the River Nile, Murchison Falls, the Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon, the Volcanoes, and the Central African Jungle that meets East Africa in Uganda.
Direct Flights open the American Market to East Africa for Tourism, but beyond, East African Companies can now send their products directly to New York City. African Flowers, Fruit, and Vegetables will make their way into a market they have not been…many in East Africa, including Uganda, are excited…see you soon.
