Uganda - A Caravan Flight Entebbe to Kihihi 1

It was time for a new adventure. I had done the long haul bit, UK to Entebbe, Uganda. Now to head West to the Bwindi Impenetrable Rainforest. A more fun flight was in order, a flight in a caravan plane across country at a low level. From Entebbe to Kihihi, a small village before the drive to the jungle..

I was so excited to be on my way to see Mountain Gorillas in the wild. But that does not take into account that the whole journey could be a super adventure as ever. The trip was kindly organised by The Insurance Emporium. And it was going to be a trip of a lifetime, even for me. Well, the flight started amazingly….. Taking off from the shores of Lake Victoria 🙂

These internal caravan plane trips I do truly love, especially when flying over the varied and different landscapes of Africa. I remember so fondly a similar trip in Tanzania a few years back. The seating is just for 11 people which makes it very comfortable for a little plane and the fact that you are not at the height of jets you see so much more below. The flight time from Entebbe to Kihihi was around 1 hour 10. Plenty of time to look out in wonder.

The greens contrasting the browns was a stark reminder that we were flying in the proximity of the equator. It might be hot but it can rain a lot too amongst the hot sunshine. This was more evident when you see the mountain ranges of central Africa in the distances.

I was getting ever closer to the mountain gorillas too. Already an exciting trip. The journey there makes it even more special. I do always believe that there is so much more than what you specifically go to do. Take it all in and enjoy every minute. Make new friends along the way.
