The beauty of flying safaris is that you get to visit as many destinations as you want in a short time and you also get to visit some of the inaccessible places in the country.
Traditionally Gorilla safaris to Mgahinga Gorilla National Park were done by road and many travelers didn’t fancy visiting this National park because of the 9-10 hours driving on the road from Kampala/Entebbe involved; now they opt to flying safaris which has made it easier to do safaris to the less congested National park. The flights here take an approximate time of just one and half hours with Aerolink Uganda a local flight operator based in Entebbe International Airport. Flights land in Kisoro Airfield and one of our trained and professional driver guides will pick you up and transfer to your booked lodge for relaxation and if interested you can participate in one of the activities around the park before your dinner and overnight.
Please note that the weather in Kisoro district being near Bwindi Impenetrable and Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks is very unpredictable and all flights are scheduled for morning hours while it is still calm. The winds in the afternoon make it unfavorable for flights to go there. Sometimes flights take a little long to get there or leave because they do sometimes connect via Kasese and Kihihi Airfields in case they have clients to drop or pick as they proceed.
When to book flying safaris to Mgahinga National Park
Mgahinga Gorilla National Park can be visited all year round but the best time is during the dry months of December to March and June to October. During the drier months tracking is much easier but the Mountain Gorillas and Golden Monkeys move much further as they look for food. This does not mean that Gorilla tracking cannot be done in the wet season since the chances to see Gorillas in the wild are much less the same as during the drier months of the year.
Booking is done all year round and travelers are required to do so in advance as well as Gorilla permits before they sell out.
