Transport from Kampala or EBB
Do you need transport from Kampala or Entebbe Airport for a trip to Kasese for your climbing expedition in the Rwenzori Mountains? Here are the various options.
Travelers use public means, private car or air travel. In Kampala, there are bus operators who offer scheduled trips to Kasese. Visit one of the Bus stations in the city and board a bus.
The drive requires about 6-7 hours depending on the speed used or traffic along the way. This option is cheap, but not quick. These buses go on loading and offloading along the way.
For those who don’t like shared transport, a private car is the best. Get in touch with an operator. Enjoy a ride from EBB Airport, Kampala or other location to Kasese at favoring rates. It is quick, comfortable, and safe. Don’t wait to reserve one.
There is no need for you to hustle as you access the boarding point. The private car will come for you right at your exact location. You can book a one-way or return trip. We can drop you there, participate in the hiking excursions, and then we come for you once you are done.
For travelers who get irritated with long-distance drive, Aerolink is available to serve. It offers scheduled flights from Entebbe to an Airstrip in Kasese. You can as well order a chartered flight at an extra cost.
