Baby gorilla in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest


Helicopter Safaris

Exploring Uganda by helicopter – a country covering just 1% of the planet’s land mass, yet home to an astounding 10% of the world’s biodiversity! This is where the East African savannah meets the West African jungle. Its fertile soils support an immense range of wildlife and bird life, and along with the primeval tropical forests and wildlife plains, one of the sources of the River Nile starts right here – in the permanently snow-capped Rwenzori mountains.

Uganda Highlights

By helicopter, some of the most thrilling destinations to see are Kidepo Valley, Murchison Falls, Kazinga Channel, the National Parks of Kibale and Queen Elizabeth, and the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest – for close encounters with mountain gorilla, tree-climbing lions and swimming elephant.
