FAQs

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/

Alternatively what most visitors do is to get the visa at the immigration desk at the Airport after you land into the country. For US$100, it takes you just 5 minutes to do that.

Make sure you have a valid passport, a yellow fever vaccination card and anything your consulate would advise you.
How far is the destination from the airport?
Bwindi is about 9 hours drive from Entebbe International Airport. Fortunately for you, we'll take a 2 hour local flight from Entebbe to Kihihi and then take an adventure walk for 2 hours and drive to our destination 2 hours ahead. Remember to take in the views and keep your cameras close by. You my not want to forget what you see.
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.
Should I be scared of the Gorillas or be concerned about security?
Noooo! You're are very safe in these parts of the country. You'll have rangers when you enter the jungles and gorillas are commonly known to be really gentle giants. They're habituated for your presences, remember?! But of course, there are some rules you'll be briefed about before you enter the jungle. Talk to our consultants to get a comprehensive briefing before you come.
