When planning a luxurious flying gorilla safari to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda, it is crucial to pay attention to essential details that cannot be overlooked. Travelers who opt for high-end safaris have high expectations, and meeting those expectations can be quite challenging. At Trek Africa Expeditions, we are delighted to provide you with a guide that highlights the key components of a luxury flying safari to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Below are some of the luxurious safaris that incorporate a visit to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park for gorilla trekking.
When planning a luxury flying gorilla safari to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, it is essential to consider booking an exclusive gorilla trekking experience. This unique opportunity allows your clients to trek a whole gorilla family alone, ensuring an unforgettable and personalized adventure.
To secure an exclusive gorilla trekking experience, you need to book all 8 gorilla permits for a particular family. On the day of reserving these permits, you can request UWA (Uganda Wildlife Authority) in writing that your clients prefer to trek gorillas alone. If granted, your clients will be given a whole gorilla family to themselves, regardless of whether they are 8 in number or not.
It is important to note that a gorilla family is trekked by a maximum of 8 people, which is why you must book all 8 permits. If UWA refuses to grant permission for exclusive gorilla trekking at the time of booking, you can still request this on the day of trekking. The allocation of gorilla families officially takes place at park headquarters on the day of the trek, giving you a chance to make the request again.
When booking gorilla permits, you will be informed of the specific region where you will be trekking the gorillas. This information is useful in choosing the best lodge in the area and deciding which airstrip to use for landing or takeoff. For instance, if you have booked gorilla permits for Buhoma or Ruhija, it is advisable to fly into Kisoro and book lodges in Buhoma or Ruhija. Similarly, if you have booked gorilla permits for Rushaga or Nkuringo, it is recommended to consider luxury lodges in Rushaga and Nkuringo. By taking into account the location of the gorilla permits and choosing suitable accommodations and airstrips, you can ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience during your gorilla trekking safari.
In summary, booking exclusive permits for gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is a great way to enhance the luxury flying safari experience. With careful planning and communication with UWA, you can give your clients a personalized and unforgettable gorilla trekking adventure.
If you are planning a luxury gorilla safari in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and need to take an internal flight from Entebbe to Kisoro or Kihihi, consider charter flights over scheduled ones. This is because charter flights offer more flexibility, personalized services, and comfort for your clients.
Charter flights can depart at any time, which means that you can tailor the flight schedule to your client’s specific needs and itinerary. Additionally, all services on charter planes are tailored to the luxury plans of your clients, from in-flight meals to luggage allowances.
Most aviation companies in Uganda offer both charter and scheduled flights from Entebbe International Airport or Kajansi Airstrip, but for a luxury safari, a charter flight is a better option. When selecting a charter flight, consider choosing bigger aircraft such as the Grand Caravan to ensure enough space for both seats and luggage.
At Trek Africa Expeditions, we offer more information about charter flights and can help you choose the best company to suit your needs. Contact us today for more information and start planning an unforgettable luxury gorilla safari in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

With exclusive luxury lodge occupancy, you can book all rooms and services for the nights that your clients will be spending in Bwindi. This is especially important for clients in the super luxury category who may come with their staff and require additional rooms and security.

After arriving at the nearby Kisoro or Kihihi airstrips via chartered or scheduled flights, your clients will need to be transferred to their lodge by road. For luxury clients, Trek Africa Expeditions highly recommends 4×4 luxury Land Cruisers/Jeeps as they meet the minimum standards required by this class. We ensure that all transfers to and from the airstrip and lodge, as well as from the lodge to the gorillas, are done using luxury 4×4 Land Cruisers or Nissan Jeeps.
Upgrading to 4×4 Land Cruisers or Jeeps ensures a more comfortable and luxurious transfer experience for your clients. Please contact us for more details on how we can provide luxury transfers for your clients.
Planning a luxury gorilla flying safari to Bwindi National Park requires careful consideration and ample time to ensure that everything is booked in advance. It is highly recommended that you book gorilla permits, lodges, and flights at least 1-2 years ahead of your planned travel dates. By doing so, you increase your chances of securing your preferred permits and lodges, as well as having enough time to make adjustments and ensure a smooth journey.
Booking in advance is especially important if you are planning a high-end or exclusive safari, as these accommodations and services are in high demand and often book up quickly. By securing your bookings early, you also have more flexibility to adjust your itinerary as needed and ensure a hassle-free experience for your clients. Don’t leave things to chance – start planning and booking your luxury gorilla flying safari well in advance.
Many travelers prefer to go gorilla trekking during the high seasons of June, July, August, December, January, and February. However, during these months, there are usually many people booking gorilla permits, making it difficult to secure 8 permits for exclusive gorilla trekking. To avoid overcrowding, it’s recommended to consider months closer to the beginning or end of high season.

When organizing a luxury gorilla safari to Bwindi, it is important to consider giving back to the local community and environment. Many high-end clients are interested in supporting projects related to conservation or community development. As a responsible travel company, Trek Africa Expeditions works closely with the communities around Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and can suggest various projects where clients can donate, volunteer, or give back during their safari. Please contact us if you would like to include such activities in your tour.
Trek Africa Expeditions provides tipping guidelines for those planning a luxury gorilla safari to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Tipping is a way to show appreciation for good service from guides, porters, or waiters while on safari. It is recommended that rich clients include tipping in their total cost, allowing the tour leader to handle the distribution of tips. Tipping should be done diligently to avoid any feelings of unfairness or cheating. It is essential to plan for tipping in advance to ensure that it is done properly.
When it comes to gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, it’s essential to ensure that luxury clients have a comfortable and stress-free experience. One way to achieve this is by hiring porters to assist with carrying bags and providing a helpful push or pull when needed. This is especially important as gorilla trekking can be physically demanding.
For those who may require additional assistance, such as older clients or those with limited fitness levels, sedan chairs or stretchers are highly recommended. These will provide a comfortable and safe way to transport clients to the gorillas.
At Trek Africa Expeditions, we understand the importance of ensuring our clients have the best possible experience during their gorilla trekking adventure. That’s why we offer porter and sedan chair services to assist luxury clients throughout their journey. Please contact us for more information.
