Did you know that Uganda now is Open to Domestic Tourism? Uganda wildlife Authority last week announced that all Savannah parks are now open to tourists.
However, for now, with the fact that International flights cannot arrive into the country in the bid to fight the spread of the novel corona-virus, only persons in Uganda can access the parks.
Primate tracking parks, however, are still closed and not open to tourists. This is so because primates or great apes are very susceptible to catching human diseases and experts warn that they could contract the corona-virus.
And also Uganda’s chimpanzee trekking destinations like Kibale Forest National Park, Kyambura Gorge of Queen Elizabeth National Park, Budongo Forest near Murchison Falls National Park still remain close.
For now, if planning any Uganda safari, then primate tracking should not be a part of your trip. Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary that also is home to the chimpanzees is closed for now.
For those within Uganda, take this opportunity to get off the pressure from the novel coronavirus by taking a short trip to any savannah parks.
The National parks that can be visited now include Lake Mburo National Park, Murchison Falls National Park, Semuliki National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Mount Elgon National Park, and Rwenzori Mountains National Park.
Kidepo Valley National Park despite being a savannah park is still closed due to the fact that the park is experiencing floods in the northern sector.
