Uganda Wildlife Authority Filming Contract
Uganda wildlife Authority requires all film crews intending to film in Uganda National Parks to sign a memorandum of understanding in what is called UWA Filming Contract. If you contact Encounter Africa Safaris this becomes extremely easy as we have a long term relationship with Uganda Wildlife Authority most especially department of marketing that is in charge of processing filming contracts.
Your company will be requested to send us a letter addressed to Uganda Wildlife Authority seeking permission to film in any of the chosen national parks in Uganda. This letter should talk about the company, what exactly they want to film in the chosen National Parks and how the documentary will help in promoting tourism in Uganda.
On top of the above, you will be required to let Uganda Wildlife Authority know the exact dates and days when you intend to film in the chosen national park so that they can calculate how much you will be required to pay per day.
Once the above is done, then Uganda Wildlife Authority will need passport details of each film crew members plus the post he/she is holding in the crew. For example, Film Director, cameraman etc.
Encounter Africa Safaris will forward the above information to Uganda Wildlife Authority who will in turn draft an MOU or filming contract plus a quote which we will then send to you to effect payment.
Once the filming contract is ready, we will request you to write an authorization letter to Uganda Wildlife Authority authorizing Encounter Africa Safaris Ltd to sign and collect this filming contract on your behalf. You can then pick it from our office on arrival.
