On July 1st, 2015, Uganda increased its tourist visa from $50 USD to $100 USD. One year later, on July 22nd, 2016, it has opted to reverse this increase and has lowered the price back down to $50 for a single entry tourist visa. The decrease comes as neighboring countries see increases in prices. Tanzania recently overturned article 21 of the VAT Act of 2014, which exempted "supply of tourist guiding, game driving, water safaris, animal or bird watching, park fees, and ground transport services". This meant an instant increase in all safari prices of 18%.
Uganda is nicknamed 'The Pearl of Africa', and there's a reason for this: it is a land of stunning beauty and varied landscapes. The headwaters of the Nile River are found in Uganda and it is also home to nearly 70% of the world's remaining mountain gorillas.
Some of its parks and reserves include:
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
Companies that offer safari tours in Uganda.
Tourist visas can be obtained online. A single-entry visit is $50. It is also possible to purchase an East Africa visa, which allows entry to Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda and is valid for three months. For more information, see https://visas.immigration.go.ug/
