Cheap flights from Uganda

True to British politician Winston Churchill’s words, Uganda is the “Pearl of Africa”, because of the diverse range of fauna found in the country. Uganda, a home to endangered species such as mountain gorillas and common chimpanzees, is located at the eastern part of the African continent.

Uganda is divided into four regions: Central Uganda, the capital city and where Lake Victoria’s shoreline can be seen; Eastern Uganda, where you can do trekking close to the Kenyan border; Northern Uganda, an area rich in wildlife; and Western Uganda, where you can do gorilla trekking on the Rwandan and DR Congo borders.

When in Uganda, do not miss gorilla tracking and whitewater rafting and kayaking on the Nile. You may also try ATV or quad-biking and horse riding safari around the local villages.

Where to go

From Entebbe, in Central Uganda, you can reach Northern Uganda by flying to Arua via Arua Airport. You can book a scheduled flight with Eagle Air at the Entebbe International Airport.

You can go around Arua by rental taxi and see the city’s attractions like the Albert Nile, Ajai Game Reserve, and Murchison Falls National Park. Discover Arua’s wildlife on the River Nile by taking a swamp airboat.

You may also visit the Rhino Camp, where the Theodore Roosevelts safari was once located. There is, however, no commercial accommodation in the said town.

For less than five hours, you can fly to Cairo, Egypt, from Entebbe with EgyptAir via Cairo International Airport. EgyptAir has daily scheduled flights to Cairo at the Entebbe International Airport.

Cairo may be one of the world’s densely populated cities, but it is a sought-after country in Africa because of its preserved medieval Islamic city. Even with its historical features, Cairo still has its modern vibe, which gave its moniker, “Paris on the Nile”.

Cairo is known for its mosques that reflects its Islamic culture. Visit the country’s famous mosques such as the Al-Azhar Mosque, Ibn Tulun, and Citadel and Mosque of Mohamed Ali Pasha. Also check out its museums like the Coptic Museum and the Egyptian Museum.

Tourists can take an eight-hour trip to Brussels from Entebbe International Airport in Uganda. You can fly with Brussels Airlines, which has a scheduled daily trip, to the country’s international airport.

Brussels, the capital city of Belgium, is said to play an important role for the European Union and has become a “melting pot” because it serves as a headquarters for many European institutions.

Although densely populated, the city retained its distinct character in terms of language—using both French and Dutch—and in architecture. Brussels’ architecture can be evident with some of its main attractions such as the Grand Place-Grote Markt, Palais de Justice, Basilique du Sacre Coeur, Palais Royale, and The Bourse, among others.

Do not miss the famous Belgian beers in Brussels. You can try some at the breweries in Brussels like the Cantillon Brewery and BrewSpot.
