Filming spotted hyenas on Uganda safari- Where can spotted hyenas be best filmed in Uganda? Uganda is one of the wildlife filming places provided that there is the availability of different wildlife species that a country has at it is disposal. In today’s simple article, we are going to talk about filming spotted hyenas in Uganda. Uganda offers the best places for filming hyenas and they are found in different national parks.
Most of the national parks offer hyenas and they can be filmed in every national park. However, there are the best places where you can go and film spotted hyenas at ease and get an interesting documentary. The spotted hyenas in Uganda can be found in Kidepo Valley National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park and Murchison falls National Park among other areas. These parks provide the best sights for filming the spotted hyenas
The Ishasha plains of Queen Elizabeth National Park provide the best perfect destination where spotted hyenas can be filmed at ease. The sector features a lot of wildlife species in the whole of Queen Elizabeth National Park and it has been found on time with lions, and hyenas moving along each other as they wait for the prepares.
Apart from hyenas and lions. Visitors heading to Ishasha can also film other animals including the big 4 animals and other categories of animals such as the baboons, hippopotamus, waterbucks, topis, and other several antelopes. Visitors will get an opportunity to film hyenas hutting the Uganda kobs or hyenas trailing the lions as they wait for lions to hunt, kill and then they eat the leftovers.
However, as earlier said, visitors can as well film hyenas for other parks such as Murchison falls national park and Kidepo valley National Park all these parks offer a perfect filming environment for hyenas.
As we have seen, Filming hyenas in Uganda can be done in various national parks of Uganda such as Queen Elizabeth Nation, Kidepo valley National Park and Murchison falls National Park. However, you need to know the best time for filming spotted hyenas in these National Park.
It is important to note that Filming spotted hyenas in Uganda can be done throughout the year, but we recommended that you do the filming in drier months of June, July, August, and September than December, January, and February. These months offer the best environment for filming since they are characterized by a good environment of sunny weather that is good for hyena filming.
There are different loges and campsites in and around several filming destinations in Uganda. The fact that hyena filming takes place in prominent and most visited national parks in Uganda that is Queen Elizabeth National Park, Murchison Falls National Park, and Kidepo Valley National Park, these national parks offer lodges depending on your budget, time, and interests. There lodges ranging from budget, mid-range, and luxury lodges where you can choose from. You will need to contact Africa Adventure Vacations such that we can choose for you the best accommodation facilities in these surrounding national parks depending g on your budget.
Filming hyenas is very interesting especially when met in their natural habitat without any disturbance, I believe that doing the spotted hyena filming in Uganda will be one of the greatest experiences and it will as well meet your quality of production and documentary provided the secret and untamed Ugandan wildness.
However, to be able to enter into Queen Elizabeth National Park, Murchison falls national park, or Kidepo valley National Park where filming Spotted hyenas takes place, you will need to have a valid filming permit obtained from Uganda Wildlife Authority, then you should also bear media cards or be credited by the Uganda Media Council and all other required information. Also, you will need to cover 15% of the fees of the monitoring while filming the hyenas and then 40% of the total activity cost.
You’re as well hereby informed that you will also need clearance for the customs department of your Filming equipment which will be done from your point of entering Uganda whether land border or at the airport. At Africa adventure vacations, we shall help you process the filming permits, then the press cards, then the lodge where you will stay. Transportation to and from filming destination and then the guide including assisting you in clearance at the airport.
For all those interesting in filming spotted hyenas in Uganda, you will need to obtain or buy the Ugandan tourist visa which is available at USD50. Yes, you can obtain or purchase your visa online before your actual dates of traveling to Uganda for spotted hyenas filming but it is also very possible that you can purchase your Ugandan Tourist Visa immediately you arrive at the Entebbe International Airport which is Uganda’s Main point of entry and exit for the international visitors. It can also be got from land borders.
It is a must that for one to be able to film spotted hyenas in any of the three national parks in Uganda, he or she must be accredited by the Uganda media council as the law stipulates. Those who are interested and they are from the local company, or from private production companies or filming companies min Uganda here should hand in their application via a recognized local agent who is in books of the Ministry.
This is a must of all those even who are interested in the filming industry even shortly. Applicants will have to fill the so-called form G which we shall send you and then after filling it, you will be requested to send it to us back with attachments of your passport /national identity and then the passport photo that is put on the license form.
You will as well need a letter from the filming company stipulating all the necessary information including why there is a need for filming the spotted hyenas, which destination they will be filming, and then the identification of the team that will be involved in filming. Our work here we shall attach this letter and then send it to the media council for approval or accreditation and media card processing and this lasts for about 3 working days and everything will be ready.
At African adventure vacation, we shall aid you in organizing for your transportation as you filming the spotted hyenas in Uganda parks. The type of vehicle that we shall offer for your crew member will depend on the nature of the road, your budget, and your interests. However, we recommend that the film crew members opt for the land cruiser 4×4 vehicle which is sold at around USD200, or the supper customer 4 wheel drive vehicles that are offered at around USD150 per vehicle per day. This estimated price is majorly based on fuel and after informing us then we shall calculate the mileage that the car will cover up to the point where you will film spotted hyenas and then back. We can as well organize for you the scheduled flights or chartered flights that are available at Entebbe international airport or Kajjansi airfield to the spotted hyena destination countries in Queen Elizabeth n, Murchison Falls and Kidepo Valley National parks.
