Discover Uganda, the Pearl of Africa, as it reopens to Tourism

Finally, Uganda opens for International Tourists on October 1-2020


Uganda opens for International Tourists

Uganda opens for International Tourists beginning on October 1, 2020.  It has been a tough year for tourism worldwide, and it has been no exception for Uganda’s Tourism sector. The year, in its beginning, showed great promises for tour operators, hotels, and lodges.

The harsh winds of the COVID-19 pandemic wiped out what would have been a record year for tourism in the Pearl of Africa. Fortunately, the COVID-19 epidemic has not ravaged the Ugandan people as in other parts of the world. Africa, in general, fared better than other parts of the world.

Safari Tour Operators such as Kabiza Wilderness Safaris may have been knocked down but not knocked out.  We eagerly look forward to welcoming you to Uganda Entebbe International Airport, the gateway to the Pearl of Africa.

A valid COVID-19-Free Certificate is required.  The test must be taken within 72-hours of arrival. Since COVID-19 cases are on the increase in some cities, and they will be bypassed. Tour operators, such as Kabiza Wilderness Safaris, will take preventative measures that limit local contacts.Uganda opens for International Tourists on October 1-2020

Safaris will be different than in the past. Personal Protection Equipment such as protective masks, hand sanitizer will have to be added to your packing list.

All park activities require that all participants wear protective masks. That is especially true for primate trekkers.

Tour operators will follow strict guidelines that focus on your wellbeing and protection. The number of passengers allowed in vehicles has been reduced. Lodges and hotels will take all protective measures for their guest and staff.

We have created a Rules and Guideline page for Tourists, both domestic and international. We strongly suggest that you read it if you are considering visiting Uganda in 2020 and 2021.

Uganda opens for International Tourists, and we are ready to welcome you to the Pearl of Africa.


Consider Uganda as your COVID-19 Recovery Destination

Uganda opens for International Tourists on October 1-2020Uganda opens for International Tourists, Visitors, and returning Ugandans beginning on October 1, 2020. Most of us have been locked up in our homes for months and need a break from the daily depressing Coronavirus updates.

This is the perfect time to visit Uganda on a Safari.  The country has experienced an unprecedented Gorilla Baby Boom in both Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla Park.  

It is time to consider a safari in Uganda.  There are some advantages and incentives for going on a Safari in Uganda during 2020.

The Uganda Wildlife Authority has added incentives for both domestic and international tourists. Lodges, in many cases, are offering reduced rates for their guests. 

Add to that you on a Safari without the crowds. You will enjoy Uganda with the feel of being all alone in the African Wild of Uganda.

We want to keep you well while you are on a safari with us. We will avoid the crowds by bypassing cities and taking you directly to parks. That does mean that you will find fewer Ugandans but more animals. For that, we apologize, but our concern for your safety.

Time to Consider Uganda, Discover the Pearl of Africa with Kabiza Wilderness Safaris. We know Uganda. We live and work here.  For over a decade, we have created memorable, safe, and secure Safaris in the Pearl of Africa.
