Travel Tips 


Naterow la Nature Safaris is flexible on most of the detailed plans when notified.

To confirm your reservation, Naterow Safaris Africa needs to secure your gorilla (habituation experience) permits and chimpanzee permits. And we are required to make full payment for these permits to fully confirm them and in this regard we also request you to make this payment at the time of booking.

If the tour you are booking is at least 60 days (or more) away, a deposit that should at minimum be able to cover the cost of the gorillas and chimps permits is acceptable and also accommodation as when it is peak season, there may not be availability without deposit.

The permits' costs are (per person, per day/trek):

a. Uganda gorilla tracking permit - US$600
b. Uganda Gorilla Habituation Experience permit - USD1500
c. Uganda Kibale Chimps tracking - USD150
d. Uganda Kibale Chimpanzee Habituation Experience - US220
e. Uganda Kyambura Gorge Chimps - USD50
f. Rwanda Gorilla Tracking permit - USD1500


Because most hotels/ lodges and camps will need payment to confirm bookings, we kindly request you to pay in full before the commencement of your tour/ safari.

If you have already paid for the permits, you can pay the balance any time before starting the tour to within 14 days before your tour begins. This is is not so strict but of course if we lost your preferred hotel/lodge reservation because of failure to pay in time, because of your failure to remit payment, we won't be held responsible.

The standard is we should have you full pay before you start the tour. So you can even pay on the tour start day. Besides, we need money to run your tour. Last minute payments may lead to late starts for the tour especially if you have to withdraw money from an ATM.

We advise you not to rely so much on ATMs for payment. Most often the networks fail.

That said, most of our clients choose to make one single full payment to reduce on the bank charges and stress of paying installments.

Payment Methods
Bank Transfer: Our most preferred payment mode would be by electronic bank transfer to our bank.

It takes 3-5 days to receive the funds and the moment we receive the funds, we shall notify you right away and a scanned receipt will be sent to you.
