Prepare to take flight as we embark on a thrilling journey through the Fly-In Kihihi Buhoma Gorilla Safaris, a breathtaking adventure that unveils the wonders of Uganda’s famed Gorilla trekking experiences. With the introduction of domestic scheduled and charter flights by Aerolink Uganda from Entebbe to Kihihi airstrip, situated just 46 kilometers by road from the Buhoma park headquarters in the northern reaches of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda has emerged as a coveted destination for flying safaris.
The flight from Kihihi to Buhoma is a mere 1 hour and 15 minutes, a stark contrast to the arduous 10-11 hour drive with stopovers, including a pause at the equator line in Kayabwe before continuing to Mbarara. The road journey meanders past cattle ranches and corridors near the park boundary of Lake Mburo National Park, offering travelers glimpses of wildlife along the way, from zebras to impalas grazing alongside the iconic long-horned Ankole cattle.
Uganda warmly welcomes tourists throughout the year, making it an ideal destination for safaris regardless of the season. However, the prime months for exploration are typically June to September and December to February, ensuring favorable conditions and an exceptional safari experience.
