Good news from Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) is that Gorilla permit price will be maintained for the years 2018-2019 (US$600 for Foreign non-residents, US$500 foreign residents, & UGX 250,000 East Africans). There has been a rumor that UWA had suspended sale of 2018 Gorilla permits but this is not true. Permit sales are open and some months are already looking busy.

Not every destination gives travelers a reason to visit during off-peak seasons. But kudos to Uganda for introducing special rates during the months of April, May and November. Four years after the decrease in gorilla permit prices during this period, Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park has witnessed a marked increase in visitation.

 

Catching much of the tourism industry by surprise, the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) has doubled the cost of gorilla trekking permits from US$750 to US$1,500 for all visitors effective immediately. The price increase will not affect travelers who had already booked their trips and purchased gorilla permits at the time of this announcement on May 6.

Twenty-three years after the genocide against the Tutsi, Adventure Consults joined the rest of the world to remember and honor the more than one million lives lost in Rwanda during the internal strife of 7th April to 15th July 1994.

 

Although Rwanda is more renowned for mountain gorillas, the East African country is once again home to critically endangered black rhinos.

There's lots of talk these days about robots taking over many functions from humans. But bit also know of a recent case where an animatronic animal stood in for the real thing — a robotic mountain gorilla the Uganda Tourism Board brought along to the Destinations Holiday & Travel Show in London.

Primates aside, Uganda’s most spectacular game viewing experience is Queen Elizabeth National Park. Unlike Bwindi and Kibale — which are both densely forested — QENP features a typical East African savannah landscape and the creatures that relish that mix of grasslands and forest.

The government of Rwanda has implemented a new requirement for visitors effective immediately. Tour operators must obtain emergency evacuation insurance from local provider Akagera Aviation for each traveler.

It has come to our attention that Uganda’s Immigration Department is currently experiencing technical difficulties with its online application system, (www.visas.immigration.go.ug).
