Traveling to the pearl of Africa has got better since there has been the utilization of local domestic flights to any part of the country or tour destinations across the country and thus several partners have collaborated with the government and introduced chartered flights to key areas to ease the mode of transport and accessibility to these areas, for example, their domestic flights scheduled from Entebbe to Kihihi airstrip in the southwestern part of the country where we find key attractions for example trek gorillas in Ruhija, Buhoma, Nkuringo, Rushaga, Mgahinga, mountain hiking, golden monkey trekking, nature walks and other activities in either of the nearby parks from the airstrip.
Kihihi airstrip is a quick connecting point to adventurous parks in the western and southwestern part of the country where visitors can easily connect to Queen Elizabeth national park, Bwindi impenetrable forest national park, and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park.
On our gorilla trek from any part of the country, we book your gorilla permits, accommodation, and transport to and from Bwindi and do this based on the local knowledge that we have accumulated over time.
We plan for a direct flight from Entebbe airstrip to Kisoro by booking a chartered company that usually transports visitors to the western part of the country within one hour and a half then transferred to your place of rest by a vehicle before the tracking day. Gorilla trekking takes one hour with the primates in the jungle however gorilla habituation can as well be done on your short trip for gorilla trek from any part of the country where you get up close to the gorillas for about four hours of experience and learning how they are taught to relate to visitors in the jungle. When you catch a glimpse of a magnificent silverback and his family, your journey will be well worth the effort.
Furthermore, the Kihihi airstrip offers a quick connection to the Ishasha sector which lies in the southwestern part of Queen Elizabeth National Park and acts as a home for Tree climbing Lions. A game drive to these wildlife primates is a unique and rare African safari experience to be found in parks but can be best explored on a Ugandan safari. You will be thrilled to meet them up in big fig trees where you view them in a pop-up roof of our safari vehicle which allows you to stand to get the best photos.
Domestic flights scheduled to Kihihi airstrip operate every day and there two shifts which operate that you can book either for a morning or afternoon transfer for travel which will take you between an hour and upon landing you can be transferred in our safari vehicles to any of your dream destinations in relation to your travel itinerary.
