Getting to Uganda has become easier with Daily Direct Flights from NYC to East Africa


 Take one of the Daily Direct Flights from NYC to East Africa where you are in New York on day one and on 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 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.


From a practical viewpoint – Uganda stretches your Gorilla Further:

Uganda is the Premier Primate Destination where you can trek Gorillas – Chimpanzees – Golden Monkey in a safe and secure environment and were gorilla permit prices remain at 600 USD while in neighboring Rwanda they are 1,500 USD meaning that the most expensive Tourist Activity in Africa remains withing greater reach of the average person.

Uganda is not just home to Primates but is home of the Big-5- home to Kidepo Valley Park that is Africa as it used to be 50 years ago. Add the River Nile, Murchison Falls, the Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon, the Volcanoes, the Central African Jungle that meets East Africa in Uganda

The Direct Flights open up the American Market to East Africa for Tourism but beyond, East African Companies can now send their products on a direct flight to New York City.  African Flowers, Fruit, Vegetables will make their way into a market they have not been…many in East Africa including in Uganda are excited…see you soon.
