Wiring money for Gorilla Trek

Jump to last reply

Sorry everyone -but we are new to this type of forum and posted this message as a reply to someone else. I have now figured out that we should have started a new post so here goes!!

We are trying to book a gorilla trek to Uganda and are leaning towards African Pearl Safaris. (which we have heard good things about)

Are major concern is that they want us to wire a cash deposit as they are not set up for credit cards.

Has anyone had any experiences with doing this and is it safe?? Western Union and the Uganda High Commission in Canada have both advised against it - but are there any other options.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Again sorry for the repeat posting!!
