Uganda is safe for tourists who travel in the care of a reputable tour operator and take the usual precautions to avoid falling victim to tourist scams and petty crime. In fact, Uganda is one of the friendliest countries to visit in Africa, where much-needed tourism is welcomed.

The CDC and WHO recommend the following vaccinations for Uganda: hepatitis A, hepatitis B, typhoid, cholera, yellow fever, rabies, meningitis, polio, measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis), chickenpox, shingles, pneumonia and influenza.

Although the only one required to enter is yellow fever and you will be asked to show your certificate on arrival in Entebbe.

Please note that COVID-19-related entry requirements may change without warning. We advise you to check 'Uganda entry requirements' on the UK Government website regularly in the lead up to your travel date.

Entebbe International Airport no longer requires proof of Covid-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test on entry to Uganda.

US dollars are the most useful hard currency, especially in small towns, though euros and pounds sterling are also widely accepted. You can exchange your foreign currency for the local currency (Ugandan Shillings) at Entebbe International Airport or in Kabale through a foreign exchange bureau. There are ATMs available throughout Uganda.

A two course meal and a beer cost under $10 in Uganda. Most hotels run a full vegetarian and vegan menu and can also cater for specific dietary requirements.

Daily temperatures in Uganda range from 18°C to around 30°C. Rain is quite common but usually only in short bursts. We advise you pack a rain mac and sun cream!

We'll issue a suggested packing list a couple of weeks before departure. The most important thing is - do not pack anything you wouldn't want to lose and nothing of huge value! Comfortable clothing is essential.
