Uganda

Blessed with stunning wildlife and scenery, Uganda may be a developing nation in tourism terms, but definitely an underrated one, too. For those in the know, this beautiful East African country is well renowned for its safari and trekking opportunities and for the vibrant nightlife of its capital city Kampala. As such, Uganda’s visa system is relatively lenient but sensible, to it benefits as much as possible from tourists visiting from across the world.

Uganda FAQ

Uganda is a beautiful country in Eastern Africa, it is often referred to as the pearl of Africa. Most tourists visit Uganda for its safaris. These are excellent opportunities to see and sometimes interact with the wildlife. African countries are filled with almost everything the animal kingdom has to offer, which is why we recommend extreme caution. It’s important to always listen to your guide whilst on safari.

Uganda has few rules for tourists and there is no wrongl time to visit the country, unless you cannot stand the heat. Uganda has only two seasons, but they are more related to the level of precipitation than temperature. There is the dry season when the weather can be scorching hot, but bearable. Then there is the wet season. Most people travelling to Uganda in the wet season do it mostly for research purposes, but if you visit in the hot season, you’ll be able to stand it as long as you keep yourself hydrated at all times, wear protective clothing and always wear suncream.

A popular attraction in Uganda is the gorilla’s safari. Seeing gorillas in their natural habitat can be unforgettable, but remember that you need to be well-equipped for such a safari. You will go deep into nature, so do not forget the right clothing. Also, make sure that you pack a lot of socks as the humidity can wreak havoc on your feet. The most important thing to remember when you go on a gorilla safari is, for your own safety, to always listen to your tour guide. Gorillas are peaceful animals, and they do not usually express violence, but are fiercely territorial and can attack if they feel threatened.

Uganda is a cash-based society so it would be best if you brought physical money on your trip. As you can imagine, big cities like Kampala and others have places where you can use your credit card, but they are rarer in rural areas. ATMs exist in Uganda, but the withdrawal fee is about 5%. Instead of relying on your cards, you can bring US dollars and exchange them once you are in the country.

If looking for more adventure, trekking in the Mountains of the Moon is a popular choice. The best time for this trek is in the wet season, especially in May when the weather is not that hot.

Kampala is a vibrant city with an exciting nightlife. You can have a lot of fun, drink, and maybe go dancing in nightclubs. Uganda is still developing this kind of tourism, so you should adjust your expectations. Even so, the people are welcoming, and you will not lack opportunities to have fun.

Uganda is not known for its cuisine and you should never drink tap water since it could lead to stomach ache. Bottled water, however, is widely available.

Some locals know how to speak English, and and when they do, it is more like English with a taste of Ugandan. You should keep in mind that during the dry season, all Ugandan cities can get rather dusty. It’s recommended that you explore the urban areas during the wet season.
