The main airport, Entebbe International Airport is located in Entebbe town, 40 km from the capital in Kampala. The airport is currently under expansion and renovation to improve its capacity and international travel handling. Three operators, Aerolink, Fly Uganda and Eagle Air offer scheduled and chartered flights to airstrips inside or close to 5 of Uganda’s best parks, Kidepo N.P, Murchison N.P, Queen Elizabeth N.P, Bwindi N.P and Mgahinga N.P

Aerolink Uganda - Air Transport

This is the most widely used means of transport in Uganda on a public roads system that connects Entebbe and Kampala to the rest of Uganda as well as key tourist destinations across the country. The further out of Kampala you go the more likely you are to encounter graded roads as opposed to tarmac, which can make access a little difficult in the rainy season and the reason for a good 4×4 vehicle when on safari. In national parks all vehicles must stick to the vehicle trails provided to ensure that the animals are not disturbed.

Let's Go Travel Safari Vehicles

Many National Parks in Uganda offer boat cruises for prime game viewing, birding and exploring the cultures of nearby communities. These include the Kazinga Channel boat cruise in Queen Elizabeth Park and the Nile river cruise to the bottom of Murchison Falls. One-fifth of Uganda is covered by water and there are passenger and vehicle ferries between Entebbe and the Ssese Islands, including the Ngamba Chimpanzee Sanctuary and passenger ferry between Entebbe and Jinja. There are also dug out canoes that are used to go on lakes all around Uganda
