Kibale chimps to be trekked thrice a day in high season
Speaking at The tourism forum organized by Uganda Tourism Association and funded by Uganda Tourism Board and UHOA, the director of Tourism business and development at Uganda Wildlife authority, Mr Raymond Engena anlysed the available statistics from Uganda Wildlife Authority and Ministry of tourism and noted that there was increased demand for chimpanzee permits for Kibale National Park for high season months of June, July, August and September and as such, Uganda Wildlife Authority decided to introduce a third session where tourists will have an opportunity to trek chimps thrice. According to Uganda Wildlife Authority plans, the first session will start at 8:00am, the second session will start at 11:00am and the third session will start at 2:00pm. All these efforts are endeavored to absorb many tourists that turn up during high season and for those that would love to trek chimpanzees in low seasons, a discounted rate of $100 had been slapped on low season chimpanzee permits enabling tourists to save up to $50 per permit bought during April, May and November 2016.
Details on how kibale chimps to be trekked thrice a day in high season will be announced by Uganda wildlife authority while officially launching their new rates come 2016. We at Encounter Africa safaris are very proud to be the first Agency to break such news to both domestic and international audience
