What should I carry for this trip?
Good question. Quickly, you need to cover yourself when in the jungle. Long boots, long sleeved shirt, trousers to avoid bug bites, you need a rain jacket (rainforest, remember?), a caryon bad to keep your staff and garbage (not allowed to litter) and something for the cold nights. That's more like it.
Will you process my entry visa?
No but visa processing is done so easily online before you get into the country. Check out this link. https://visas.immigration.go.ug/
