Flights to Uganda

Most visitors on flights to Uganda begin in Kampala, the country’s capital city. It’s a mishmash of old and new Africa, from lively markets and street hawker stalls to modern, trendy restaurants and nightlife venues— plus a selection of some of the very best high-end hotels in the country, all set in a gorgeous, garden-filled district.

When it comes to wildlife and natural beauty, Uganda is one of the best travel destinations in the world. Not only is it the source of the Nile; Uganda also has Africa’s largest lake, Lake Victoria, home of the continent’s largest inland fishery.

Start your travels in Jinja, which is located on the shores of the lake. It’s home to numerous adventure travel companies that will accommodate your every need, whether that means whitewater rafting along the Nile or horseback riding tours of the stunning surrounding area.

The sheer diversity of flora and fauna on offer is incredible. It’s one of the few places in the world where you can spot all of Africa’s Big Five—elephants, lions, rhinos, leopards, and buffalo. But the biggest draw for a lot of visitors is the chance to head into the jungle on a gorilla safari. Seeing these majestic, shy beasts is a true once-in-a-life time experience (and you might get to spot a chimpanzee or two as well).

It's no wonder that Winston Churchill once called this country the Pearl of Africa.
