Updates on proposed Uganda Gorilla Permit Fee increase

Good news..!!! The Uganda Wildlife Authority has issued a statement to clarify any misleading information about the price in Uganda for Gorilla Permit Fees. They advise that the fees remain unchanged for the period 2018 and 2019. They continue to take bookings for up to two years in advance. The gorilla Permit Fees are $600 for foreign non-residents and $500 for foreign residents. They believe that maintaining the current Gorilla Permit rates will enable more people to participate in gorilla tourism, and foster continued sustainability of Gorilla conservation.
