The Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) Wildlife Conservation Tariff for July 2022 to June 2024 as officially published includes reserves and national park entry fees, permits, and guided activities costs, among others.
UWA has made a few changes, like Murchison Falls National Park now has its own category “A Plus” with higher park entry charges from Category A parks. Category A entry charges have increased by $5 and Game drive fees are now mandatory for self and UWA-guided tours. But all primate fees remain the same.

All conservation fees are quoted in United States Dollars (US$) for Foreign Non-Residents (FNR) and Foreign Residents (FR), and Uganda Shillings (UGX) for Ugandans and East African Member States Citizens (Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, South Sudan).
A day’s entrance ticket is valid for twenty-four hours from the time of entrance. UWA will charge you extra fees for the extra time you spent in the park after the ticket’s 24 hours.
Children are categorised as persons aged between 5-15 years; kids below 5 years don’t pay any park or conservation fees. But, gorilla trekking and chimpanzee tracking activities allow only persons above 15 years.
Park entrance fees are independent of package activities such as gorilla tracking, chimp tracking, mountain climbing, and Bird watching.
All visitors will be required to present valid identification documents to confirm their resident status and a Covid-19 Vaccination card.
Uganda Wildlife Authority allows commercial filming and photography in the parks but charges 40% of the park activity you are filming or photographing. E.g. Commercial filming for lion-tracking can cost 40% of lion-tracking fees. Also, drone filming in the park is 50% of the park activity fees.
