The balance should be paid two weeks prior to arrival. If you choose to pay on arrival, make sure to pay in cash no other means of payment shall be accepted.

For bookings coming one month before departure we shall require the full payment of the tour costs.
The payment is made by international money transfer to the company bank account in Uganda. You can also choose to pay by VISA CARD.

Importantly to note is; Gorilla Permits in Uganda & Rwanda are not refundable when already booked, as this is the policy of Uganda Wildlife Authority.

-The safari charges are based on all known costs and rates of exchange at the time of the transfer, any significant changes beyond our control will be immediately communicated to our clients.

-We also retain the right to alter any arrangements due to local conditions. We also retain the right to refuse any person from participating or continuing any tour if that person causes or is deemed to cause hazard or inconvenience to other clients and to our environment and ecosystems.

-Please note that in Uganda and Rwanda, the US dollar banknotes series before year 2000 are accepted only with a low exchange rate, therefore clients are advised to travel to Uganda with more recent banknotes series.
