I'm starting initial trip research for Uganda, as we want to go next year. Aside from the gorilla permits, does anything else need to booked months and months in advance? We will of course book lodging and tours prior to going, I'm just wondering what needs to be booked a year out, other than the gorillas?
Also, if you book the gorilla permits without a packaged tour group, that permit comes with a mandatory guide, I assume. So if you book the permit with a packaged tour group ... is it still the same mandatory guide you would get had you booked it without the packaged tour group. Or is it a different type of guide provided by the group? I hope my question makes sense.
