This excludes monitoring fees and USD1000 refundable fees which will be returned to you after presenting a copy of DVD to Uganda Wildlife Authority. If you pay USD150 chimpanzee permit, you will be entitled to film chimps for only one hour but if you want to film chimps for half a day, then you need to book chimpanzee habituation experience permits.
