Fly from the Serengeti to the Gorillas of Uganda

November 12, 2012

In little over a month, Coastal Aviation and Fly Uganda will team up to offer a new service connecting the Serengeti in Tanzania with the highlights of Uganda.

From the 15th December 2012, Coastal Aviation will start operating a flight from Kogatende in Tanzania to Entebbe in Uganda, scheduled to arrive at 1215hrs. This service will then depart Entebbe for the Serengeti again at 1300hrs, and can also connect clients with Manyara or Kilimanjaro for other destinations in Tanzania.

In theory, the new service makes it possible to see the ‘Great Migration’ by dawn on the savannahs of the Serengeti, and be in the misty rainforests of Bwindi, home to Uganda’s mountain gorillas, by dusk.

From arrival in Entebbe, our clients can transfer to nearby Kajjansi, a private airfield 30 minutes away by road, where they can connect to Uganda’s national parks using a new seat rate service offered by private safari charter company Fly Uganda.

Fly Uganda’s new seat rate service will connect Kajjansi to Kayonza, the closest of the airstrips to the gorillas in northern Bwindi, as well as a host of other airstrips in the country’s most popular national parks. These include Murchison Falls, Kidepo Valley, Kibale Forest, Semliki and Queen Elizabeth National Park.

Clients will also be able to make the short hop to Jinja from Kajjansi, flying over the historic source of the Nile. Seat rate fares will be available based on a minimum booking of 2 seats, and the aircraft used will vary depending on passenger loads and availability.

In addition, Fly Uganda are offering selected inter-park transfers (requiring a minimum of 3 seats booked) making for swift and comfortable transfers the length and breadth of the country.
