Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) Conservation fees (tariff rates) will effective January 2014 be running on a two year calendar basis as opposed to the financial year.
According to management, this move is meant to improve customer service and ease bookings for tour operators who book permits in advance for their clients. This will reduce the uncertainty and speculation on possible changes in the middle of the calendar year.
Management of UWA has accordingly resolved that the current Conservation fees for July 2011-June 2013 will be valid until 31st December, 2013. More details can be accessed on our website and the conservation fees booklets available at the UWA headquarters, National parks and offices of the tour operators.
