The Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) has opened all the National Parks and reserves to tourists in the country.
So far, only the Savanna Parks had been reopened, while those with primates such as Bwindi Impenetrable, Mgahinga and Kibaale National Parks remained closed because of Covid19.
The rest of the parks have now been opened with strict guidelines to follow to prevent the spread of Covid19.
These include thorough sanitizing when entering the restricted area, temperature screening all entrances of the protected areas among others.
In a statement, UWA emphasized wearing masks while inside the protected area.
“Observing social distance and all tourists going for primates tracking activities should carry at least two N95 masks or surgical masks or double layer cloth masks with filters”.
Saloon vehicles will not be allowed to carry out game drives activities in the protected areas.
With Uganda’s borders still closed, the tourism sector has lately been focuses on domestic tourism.
