For many – a Flying Safari is the Best Way to visit Uganda’s parks.

Why a Fly – In Safari in Uganda might be the right Choice for you.  Uganda is a beautiful country, visitors literally fall in love with the Pearl of Africa – the only drawback one hears from time to time is distance and the road  conditions – a flying safari allow you to visit the most remote points of Uganda such as the ruggedly beautiful Kidepo Valley, the distant Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or Mgahinga Gorilla Park. (the alternative is fly into Rwanda and Trek in Uganda.)

You see Uganda – the Pearl of Africa from Above and when you land you are still refreshed and often met with a wonderful welcome.  One of our clients landed in a remote area and there were about a hundred people to greet him and his family, he was most amazed.

Flying Safaris in Uganda involve using light aircraft to the various wildlife parks and reserves.  It is one of the best ways of going on safari in the Pearl of Africa.  A flying safari gives you more flexibility and variety while on Safari in Uganda and at the same time you get a Bird’s Eye view of the Emerald Pearl of Africa.

Most parks are accessible by scheduled air services  – In recent years Uganda has a more comprehensive network with both AeroLink and Fly-Uganda and the cost is per seat rather than chartering the whole airplane. The aircraft used are newer and reliable models such as the Cessna Grand Caravan.  Packing for a flying safari is the only drawback (15 kilos), however we meet you at your destination and can have the rest of your luggage available for you.

 Why a flying Safari?  Time saved – no dust, no bumpy roads – a relative short flight of two hours or less and you are at most destinations in Uganda – we meet you at the airfield, you check into your lodge and your time the wild of Uganda begins.

Fly and drive safaris have become the more and more popular option for many – you fly to the furthest location and then drive to the nearby parks – drive times normally less than three hours at the most between parks and activities.

A flying safari does cost more and is higher in price than the same safari on the ground – the advantage – more time in the wildlife park and comfort…more reasons -Why a Fly – In Safari in Uganda might be the right Choice for you in Uganda.  The drive to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is 9 hours plus, flights are about 1 1/2 hours plus the transfer to your lodge – it just might be the right way for you to see Uganda.  Aerolink flies to all major parks including Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Fly-Uganda has started scheduled flights to Kihihi which is close to the Buhoma area of Bwindi Forest.


 Our Fly-In Safaris:

Here are our Fly-In Gorilla Safaris in Uganda from Entebbe to both Sout-Bwindi and northern Bwindi Forest. They are all luxury Safaris but can be modified into Moderately priced Safaris with midrange Lodges.

In Country Safari Flights at the present time are expensive.  You can do a scheduled airline flight in Europe or North America for a lot less.  Competition will drive the price a bit lower and also new players entering into the fray such as the revived Ugandan Airlines.  The scheduled flights of Eagle Air can also be used.  They have larger aircraft that fly mostly to Northern Uganda.

For next year we will be adding more fly-in drive Safaris desgined with convenience in mind.  Do remember that all of our Safaris are changeable and that charter-flight safaris can be arranged for you.
