It’s also a country that’s home to the Big Five, some of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas and Rwenzori, which is the tallest mountain range in Africa. There’s no denying that Uganda is an African gem and if you’re travelling the continent, you’d benefit from a few days or even weeks at this destination.

When booking cheap flights to Uganda, you will land at the Entebbe International Airport which is located in Kampala, the capital city. Kampala with its vibrant and bustling atmosphere is a good introduction to Uganda and you certainly won’t regret starting your travels of the country from here.

Best Time to Book the Cheapest Flights to Uganda

Uganda enjoys warm weather all year round thanks to its location on the equator. March to May and October to November are the wetter months and so these aren’t great times to visit for gorilla tracking and game viewing. However, gorilla tracking and national park entry fees are typically discounted during the wet months.

June to September is considered the peak season in Uganda. You can expect flight fares to be slightly higher during these months, but the country never experiences large tourist crowds, so it’s comfortable to stay at any time during the year.
