Refunds/Cancellation Guidelines and Policy for Gorilla and Chimpanzee Permits in Uganda
Due to the outbreak of covid-19 which directly affected travel and all tourism activities in Uganda, many travelers failed to make it for their treks that is Gorilla and Chimpanzee tracking which forced Uganda Wildlife Authority to relax its cancellation policy for the gorilla and chimpanzee permits. In this matter, however, Uganda Wildlife Authority decided not to give out any refund that is cash money back for those who purchased permits in advance and their dates were affected by the pandemic which it considered as not tenable. Uganda Wildlife Authority has thus offered an option to reschedule twice your gorilla and chimpanzee permits forward or backward for any dates you choose to do your trek again and when it is safe for you to travel up to December 2022. This means one can reschedule forward or backward his/her permits to new dates of her choice depending on availability two times up to December 2022.
