Bwindi Impenetrable Forest impresses with a truly theatrical landscape - this is a region of volcanoes, jagged valleys, waterfalls, lakes and dramatic mountain ranges. Bwindi by Air is designed to meet the needs of travelers who want to experience the gorillas of Uganda without taking the long drive between Entebbe/Kampala and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. 

Entebbe accommodation is at the Boma, Entebbe’s original and most exclusive hotel, set in tropical gardens in a leafy suburb, a few minutes drive from Entebbe International Airport. Rooms combine the modern comforts one expects today with the charm and character of the original 1940’s home. 

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest accommodation is at Mahogany Springs Lodge offering privacy and serenity blended with optimal comfort in one of the finest locations in the park, home to half of the world’s endangered mountain gorillas. From the unrivaled service and breathtaking views, to world-class cuisine, it is these touches at Mahogany Springs Lodge that guests love.

Note: The trekking may be fairly strenuous - up to five hours roundtrip - at relatively high altitudes. Mountain Gorillas are wild animals and, as such, sightings cannot be guaranteed. The success rate however is well over 98%. Permits for gorilla trek are not included in package price.

SPECIAL! The following discount on permit costs will be effective from 1st December 2020 to 31st March 2021:
Foreign non-resident gorilla tracking permits reduced from USD 700 to USD 400
