The combined East Africa safari tours have never gained world attention like it is nowadays! This is partly being attributed to the invention of the East Africa tourist visa.
The East African Tourist Visa allows the world travellers to visit the destinations of Uganda Rwanda and Kenya without having to apply again. The visa application is made to the initial port of entry and the Visa stamp is got upon arrival. For example, the guests doing gorilla safari in Rwanda Uganda can get the Visa from either Entebbe or Kigali depending on where they land first.
Following the increment of gorilla permit prices in Rwanda to a tune of $1500 per person, many travellers are opting for Uganda gorilla trekking safaris but of course starting and ending in Kigali to take advantage of the short driving distance. It really would have been expensive and time consuming if the guests had to get Single entry visa to enter Rwanda, Single entry visa to enter Uganda and then another single entry visa to re-enter Rwanda. But with East African tourist visa, one makes all the respective entries using one visa.
Combining Mountain Gorilla trekking in Uganda Rwanda and the Great Migration safari in Kenya is now easier with the East Africa tourist visa. Unless one is crossing to Tanzania, the combined visa would serve the ideal purpose.
The destination Tanzania has not yet joined the East African visa scheme but once it endorses it, it will be a great deal that would pull more world travellers to plan Africa safaris in East Africa especially Uganda Tanzania safari tours covering Mountain Gorillas, Chimpanzees & extensive wild game viewing including the African Big five.
The East Africa tourist Visa costs $100, valid for 90 days and allows multiple entry within the three countries of Uganda Rwanda and Kenya.
