3 Days Uganda Gorilla Fly-in Safari

This 3 Days Uganda Gorilla Trekking Fly-In Safari, you will take a 1-hour flight from Entebbe to southwestern Uganda to visit Bwindi National Park, the home of the endangered Mountain Gorillas. You will use scheduled flights that land at either Kihihi Airstrips. The safari is ideal for those who have less time but want to track the gorillas in Uganda, since you avoid the 8 to 9hrs drive from Entebbe to Bwindi.

Bwindi impenetrable national park is one of those parks with a remarkable diversity, carpeting the margin of the Albertine rift valley for thousands of years. The word “Bwindi” means “darkness”. Because of the intact forested perfections that allow very little light to pass through them and  at the same time blanketed by mist. The park hosts several other species with their counts estimated at 310 butterflies, 200 trees, 51 reptiles, 88 moths, 120 mammals and 350 bird species. Some of such species include; forest elephants, antelopes among others.
