How to write a gorilla trekking and wildlife safari review in Uganda. and

Reviews are one of the most powerful tools that travelers use to express their judgment about their trip. If you a traveler how do you begin the process of writing a review?

To write review, you must be well prepared to narrate your experience to the world.
Although there are many traveler sites that enable people to write reviews. There are only two widely used sites in Uganda: safari booking, and
All you need is to search out for the company that you traveled with. In most cases you shall find its profile all on those two sites.

After signing up or signing in, you locate the official pages of the company and start writing your review.

A review can be anything from a thank you to the company or guide that you traveled with, a detailed explanation of how you enjoyed your journey, or the little problems that you encountered, to something completely different. I would simply say just write your feeling; how was your journey?

 Did you enjoy it?
There is no limit to the number of words you use while writing a review. You just have to write until you have fully expressed yourself.

Do I need to write a review for every trip I go to?

The answer is absolutely no. You don’t need to write a review for every trip. There is no penalty for not writing a review. Tour operator companies need your review to see the kind of feedback they receive from their clients. This helps them to take every step to be better as a company.

From a personal experience at gorilla tour booking safaris,, I have seen a number of clients writing reviews about our company; I would say this is always one of our happiest moments because we know that whether a review is good or bad, it is going to contribute towards our growth.

Uganda’s E-visa.

Picture from

The E-visa platform was commemorated on July 1st 2016 during the start of a busy traveller season. I believe one of the major reasons is to ease on the process.
Here is some of the information you need to know about the about the E-visa.
I’m going concentrate on specific types of visa during my explanations. These are the type of visa that almost any adventurer tourist would want.
The East Africa Tourist Visa.
Multiple entry visa
Ordinary visa.

You can apply for one of these visas to fulfill your adventure ambitions using the E-visa platform:

The East Africa Tourist visa:
The East Africa tourist visa allows a tourist to travel between the Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda. The holder of the visa normally moves from the country that issued the visa, let say Uganda, to Kenya and Rwanda in this case without applying for domestic visa. This is convenient for those that come to do activities that span among these countries. For example some of the itineraries are designed such that you do gorilla trekking in both Rwanda and Uganda. In such a case, this visa would suite that appropriate situation.

To apply for this visa using the Uganda’s E-visa platform:
You shall need the following documents.

A copy of the passport (Bio-data page), travel itinerary, copy of the recent passport size photograph, Vaccination certificate ( Yellow fever), and a return ticket.
The fee for such a visa is $100.

Ordinary visa-single entry visa.
Those who plan on doing activities within the Ugandan border, you can apply for an ordinary visa, single entry visa.

The documents required for such a visa are:
A copy of the passport (Bio-data page), Vaccination certificate (Yellow fever),and Copy of the recent passport size photograph. The fee for such a visa is $50.

Multiple entry-visas.
The multi-entry visa suits those who feel like entering the country several times during the span of the visa. You can come in and go out and then in and out repeatedly as long as the visa is still valid.
The documents required are:

A copy of the passport (Bio-data page), Vaccination certificate( Yellow fever),and Copy of the recent passport size photograph, Police clearance from Interpol or home country, Recommendation letters from 2 referees in Uganda, and a cover letter stating reasons for multiple entry. The fee for such a visa is $100.

After submission of all those required documents,
You shall receive a notification with an application Number which you shall use to track the application.
 You shall receive an email notification detailing the steps to be taken, with an attachment of the e-visa approval to travel. The attachment should be printed and presented to Immigration Officers as proof that the e-visa was approved.

In case the application is deferred, it can be sent back for amendment by the applicant or more documents requested by the processing Immigration Officer
If you are successful with your visa, you shall pay for the visas at the Points of Entry (The Uganda border of entry)

We at gorilla tour booking safaris,, greatly encourage those who are going to travel with us to use the e-visa because of its efficiency.
