The operationalisation of the new payment system to access our national park and activities therein was successfully piloted in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park(BINP)in September.

Tour operators and other direct clients to Bwindi testify that they have found the use of the wildlife card convenient and more effective than previously carrying paper permits.

The ICT unit of UWA successfully set up the infrastructure at the Headquarter reservation offices and at BINP office, Buhoma during the month of August. This is to enable staff to load the new bookings on the card. Also the Point of Access (PoA) and Tracking Event Verification (TEV) modules were set in Buhoma, Ruhija, and Rushaga and Nkuringo locations. This was followed by a training of 12 staff at the headquarters and 10 in Buhoma in the use and operations of the cashless system. Given this, BINP is now purely cashless that no any new bookings are given on paper. Lake Mburo will come next in row.

In order to ease communication between and within UWA headquarter and the PAs as well as PAs to PAs, a total of 48 Internet Protocol (IP) phones were set up in all PAs during the month.
