 Uganda Airlines – Fly the Crane to Uganda and other destinations in Africa and Beyond. in 2019, Uganda Airlines took to the skies with a brand-new fleet of planes, once again after an absence of the eighteen years.

Uganda Airlines, with its Crested Crane direct flights, makes combining other East African Tourist Destination easier. The only thing missing is Tanzania becoming part of the East African Visa Scheme. At Present, only Uganda, Rwanda, and Kenya offer the East African Visa for $100.

Now you can conveniently combine time on the Indian Ocean on the Swahili Coast in Mombasa Kenya or Zanzibar after your Gorilla, Chimpanzee, and Wildlife Safari in the Pearl of Africa.
