4 Days 3 Nights Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Flying Safari courtesy of the Kampala Uganda Flying Safaris is a short three-night adventure vacation that takes you into the World Heritage Site of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in search of the Mountain Gorillas.

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is located in south western Uganda, on the border of Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda.

The flying time from Entebbe to Kihihi airstrip in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is about 1½ to 2 hours. The flight leaves at 0745 hours from Entebbe and arrives at Kihihi airstrip (Bwindi Impenetrable Forest) at 0930 hours.

Bwindi is habitat to more than half the world’s population of Mountain Gorillas. Actually there are over 340 mountain gorillas living here. Among there are a number of habituated groups, that can be tracked by visitors.

Aside from the elusive Mountain Gorillas that are the park’s main attraction,  Bwindi National Park has over 200 species of butterflies and 350 species of birds.

There are many primates in the park including chimpanzees, black and white colobus, red colobus and blue monkeys, grey-cheeked mangabey and L’Hoest’s monkeys, which are classified as near threatened and only seen in the Albertine Rift Valley.

Bwindi provides further shelter to antelopes, elephants and almost 400 species of plants.

On this 4 Days 3 Nights Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Flying Safari you will fly directly in and out of Bwindi, cutting down considerably on travel time, as the roads in and out of this area are often challenging to drivers.
