The rainy months of April, May and November tend to be avoided by many which affects the tourism business and puts the beneficiaries at stake including the employees.
Uganda introduced the initiative of discounted gorilla permits which has been in operation for long. The travelers that undertook gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda during them mentioned months would pay $350 for the Foreign Non Resident permit, $300 for the Foreign Resident Permit and the 150,000/= for the Citizens of the East African Community.
