Uganda national parks card

This item appears on page 5 of the April 2016 issue.

New in Uganda, the Wildlife Card is a reloadable cash card that is accepted at five national parks — Murchison, Lake Mburo, Kibale, Queen Elizabeth and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest — for both entrance fees and making purchases at park stores.
Cards can be picked up and reloaded with money at any of the parks where they are accepted or at the Uganda Wildlife Authority office in Kampala (Plot 7 Kira Road, Kamwokya, Kampala, Uganda; phone +256 414 355000). The entrance fee at parks that accept the card is $40.
