Lovely Sights of Uganda - Kampala
Lovely Sights of Uganda National Parks The national parks are beautiful and, on the whole, uncrowded. See the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) for details of gorilla tracking, safaris, chimpanzee tracking and more. Prices in several parks seem to be set at 20 (1 day), 35 (2 days),.. An ISIC student card cuts you a 25% off the entrance fees these days. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is the primary gorilla tracking location. There are troops reached from Buhoma (north) and a new troop reached from the south at Nkuringo. Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is at the confluence of Rwanda and the DRC.

If you are a bird observer then forget Kibale National Park, If not then you love to visit - Kampala
If you are a bird observer then forget Kibale National Park, If not then you love to visit If you are a bird observer , forget Kibale NP, it is dead. A better bet is a guided walk at Bigodi Wetland which costs 20,000 shillings per person. It's a bit steep in comparison with other costs but if you put the pressure on the guide, you can get about 4 hours guiding for your money which makes it reasonable. The bird life is very good and the young guides are quite knowledgeable. The park entrance fee is now US$20 (as are most parks in Uganda now) and the chimp walk is also US$20. Both are worth it because you have a 90 percent chance of seeing chimps of which I saw loads. The current East Africa LP does not say how travelers can book the bandas at the park. They can do so at the UWA office in Kampala. The people ...

A porter is highly recommended for the climb up Mt Elgon - Kampala
A porter is highly recommended for the climb up Mt Elgon A porter is highly recommended for the climb up Mt Elgon. It is a good way to help the local tourist industry and it lets you focus on climbing ? it is steep and up! The porters cost Ush 8,000 a day. It is nice to tip both the porters and the guide at the end. The porters will also make a fire, boil water for tea and coffee, and generally be of great assistance and company. If your payment card (credit or debit) is to expire within three months it will NOT be accepted outside Barclay's Bureau de Change. From Uganda it can take up to three months to clear funds, by which time your card will have expired. This is a problem with hotels, restaurants etc.
