Film crew transport and accommodation – Great Adventure safaris specialise in organising transport for Film crews in Uganda and Rwanda. We arrange for you transportation in 4×4 land cruisers and mini buses customised for filming and photography. We are aware that Film Crews require extra space to carry their kit from one place to another, so depending on your budget we can arrange and organise for you the best transportation of your choice. Reach us for your transportation requirements while in any of the locations mentioned above.
Depending on your equipment we can organise and remove some seats from our vehicles to make enough space for your kit. Our vehicles are fully maintained and insured to make sure that you do not have any problem while on the road. Kindly let us know about your requirements and we will serve you accordingly.
Our trained and professional driver guides/local fixers will keep with you at all time and feel free to chat with them in case you need and destination information. They have guided different film crews and thus very useful in as far as direction and information is concerned.
At Great adventure safaris, we organise and book accommodation for Film Crews all over Uganda and Rwanda. Whether in Entebbe, Kampala and Kigali and National Parks, please contact us for your accommodation requirements and we will offer you good rates.
Kindly let us know the category of accommodation you want to be booked for your crew members for example, budget, Mid-range or up market and we do it for you. Accommodation rates tend to vary depending on the season. The months of June, July, August and September rates tend to be high as this is the typical tourist high season in Uganda and Rwanda so booking in advance is very much required to avoid shortage.
Uganda Media Council requires any foreign journalist and all film crew members to be accredited and we can secure Media Cards on your behalf in 3-4 working days if you follow our instructions. When contacted, we will send you our Form G which gathers all the details required by Uganda Media Council which should be filled and returned by email to the respective fixer in our office plus two passport photos and a copy Passport from each crew member. Please note that if you are filming for more than one month, then the fees per Media Cards will increase. Our long term relationship with Uganda Media Council has helped us to prosper in this field and that’s why we remain ahead of everyone. Please contact Great Adventure Safaris for your Form G.
The government of Uganda requires all film crews intending to come with their filming equipment to temporarily clear it at immigration on arrival at the Entebbe International Airport something that can waste much of your time and you end up incurring un expected cost. At Great Adventure Safaris, we will request you to send through your Kit list which we shall send to our specialist clearing agent for an evaluation. It is usually a percentage of the total and once we have established how much it would cost, we will advise you accordingly and you pay for this in advance. On arrival, our clearing agent will be waiting for you at immigrations to help and take you through all this process.
Crews can always obtain a Visa on arrival but sometimes, film crews do not like lining up for this. We can help you to obtain a Tourist Visa or Business Visa to Uganda on arrival or inform one of our embassies closer to you. If requested, we will send you a letter that you will present to any embassy for them to issue you a visa otherwise, you can easily secure it on arrival at Entebbe International Airport after paying only USD50. Contact Great Adventure Safaris for more information about obtaining a Visa to Uganda.
