safari-land-cruiserReasons to Choose Car Hire in Uganda

Uganda is a vast country with a good road network that allows access the most unique and beautiful places in the the country.

With some of the best driving roads in the world a holiday utilising car hire in Uganda is an unforgettable experience which will provide you with years of amazing memories and hundreds of unique photo opportunities. The most important thing you can do when planning a self-drive car hire holiday in Uganda is planning ahead. The road network of Uganda is vast and while the roads around the major urban centres are in good condition some can deteriorate pretty badly once one reaches the more rural destinations. Car hire in Uganda allows one to see place that many tour groups would usually skip due to time constraints.

The Bwindi Route is without doubt one of the most beautiful and unique places in the world, it is a place that can be best enjoyed on a Ugandan car hire holiday. Much of the route is covered by the stunning landscape and takes you through various cultures of Uganda with stops in major towns and popular tourist attractions. The real magic of the route however are the smaller towns tucked away and not on the busy tourist route therefore a hire car in Uganda is a more practical and rewarding way to see this spectacular part of the county. Having your own hire car allows you to explore the parts of the Bwindi route.

You will almost certainly be tempted to stay longer than planned, for that reason having the independence of a hire car in Uganda is the most rewarding possible way to see the country.

Fly-In Gorilla Tracking Safari in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park – Uganda

Fly-In Gorilla Tracking Safari in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park – Uganda

Bwindi National Park, located in south western Uganda on the edge of the Great Rift Valley, is considered the most diverse forest in Uganda. The area, one of the few large expanses of forest in East Africa, where lowland and mountain habitats meet, contains a dense ground cover of herbs, vines, and shrubs. Home to over 120 mammals, 345 species of birds, 200 species of butterflies, and 160 species of trees, Bwindi is one of the richest ecosystems in East Africa. The park contains almost one half of the world’s population of the endangered Mountain Gorilla, making it an extremely valuable conservation site. Bwindi is also home to several endangered bird species with very limited ranges, and acts as an important catchment area for many rivers, supplying water for agriculture in the surrounding region.

Day 1: Transfer to Bwindi

Fly on a scheduled (daily) flight to Kihihi Airstrip. Upon arrival at Kihihi, you’ll be met by a Hotel representative and driven to Crested Crane Bwindi Hotel. Check in at the Hotel and enjoy a delicious lunch. In the afternoon you will have the opportunity to relax and prepare yourself for the next day. Or go for an optional (guided) forest walk or village community walk for a first introduction with Uganda’s unique flora and fauna.

Overnight and Dinner at Crested Crane Bwindi Hotel

Day 2: Gorilla Tracking – Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park

Following breakfast at the lodge, get your gorilla tracking attire on, pick packed lunch, water and transfer to the park offices. You’ll convene with the rest of the travellers for gorilla trekking briefing and allocation of the gorilla families.

After briefing, you’ll transfer to the starting point and head into the forest to track your habituated gorilla group. En route to the gorillas, your guide will point out signs of previous gorilla activity, including dung, nests and chewed bamboo shoots. Your gorilla tracking will be an exciting journey along forested slopes, entwined vines, bushes and bamboo before you eventually reach the gorilla family.

The time taken to track the gorillas can be as few as 2 hours to as many as 8 hours. Once the gorillas have been located, your group will be allowed a maximum of one hour with them. Coming face-to-face with a mountain gorilla is a truly humbling and emotional experience. This is a fantastic and privileged opportunity to get up close and personal with Uganda’s Mountain Gorillas.
