It’s not often that costs are cut in favour of international travellers, but today it was announced that the cost of Ugandan Entry Visas will be reduced to just $50 per person with immediate effect! Fabulous news for those who are planning on visiting the Pearl of Africa on a Gorilla Trekking Safari or Rwenzori Mountain Expedition, this new rule will save travellers $50 dollars each, so you can stay even longer and enjoy the many highlights that this beautiful country has to offer.
Furthermore, during the month of November, the Uganda Wildlife Authority will be discounting Gorilla Trekking permits to just $450 per person, a huge saving of $150 on the regular price, and so if you have been dreaming about trekking the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in search of the last few remaining Mountain Gorillas in the world, the timing couldn’t be better to book your trip!
Since Uganda introduced a new E-Visa System on 1st July 2016, applying for your visa has never been easier. Simply apply online as far in advance as possible, and if approved, you will receive your authorisation document by email.
While many people may think that Uganda is a third world country, innovative ideas like these show just how advanced and ready for tourism this blossoming country is, and with the Murchison Falls National Park, Semuliki National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, the Kazinga Canal, Lake Mutanda, and Bwindi to keep you occupied, Uganda is set to become one of Africa’s most prominent travel destinations in the coming years.
