    • Cinema Theatre in Mbarara - Is it still Running ?

      Mbarara Nov 6, 2014 at 12:53 PM

      Is the Cinema Theatre in Mbarara still running ?

      I was there 15 years ago as a backpacker. It was a memorable place. Will be back in January 2015 with family and want to take them to the "movies" in Mbarara and support the theatre.

      Hello. I would like to know the cheapest way to get to Lyantonde from Kampala and go back to Kampala the other day. I'm guessing that would be by bus so can anybody direct me to a website with timetables for Lyantonde because I couldn't find one, thanks in advance.

    • Is kampala safe for expats

      Kampala Aug 23, 2014 at 10:49 AM


      I Recently I received a job offer from a company based in Kampala

      Since then i have been visiting numerous expat sites and blogs to find out the life of an expat in kampala

      And even after going through several articles/blogs/websites I am still unable to make a decision.

      My major concerns or queries are
      1. Safety ( I read, once it is dark you should never walk alone as there is every possibility of getting mugged, robbery etc and all)
      2. Health Concerns ( Water, sanitation, food related)
      3. If the accommodation and food is being taken care by the company how much money in US $ should be enough
      i was wondering if any expat with experience of living in kampala here can help me with my queries.

      Also any kind of suggestions are welcomed.

      Thanks & Regards

      Two friends and I are planning a trekking tour in Uganda. To be more people, thus less money for the tour guide, we wonder whether there is any forum to find people planning a similar tour in Uganda at the same time. Do you know something like that?

    • Travel form Kisoro, Uganda

      Uganda Jun 24, 2014 at 3:49 AM

      My daughter is in Africa working with the Peace Corps. She has some vacation time and would like to visit other places in Africa. I will be coming to Africa from the US to spend sometime with her during her vacation period. I am having trouble deciding on the best way to travel. I can rent a car both in Uganda and Tanzania or do we use a form of bus tranport. We will travel from Entebbe to Lake Mburo to Kisoro to Tanzania to Zanzibar to Dar se Salamm.
      We can use the car for travel in Uganda then return it to Entebbe( fly from Entebbe to Dar se Salamm ) rent a car in Tanzania to travel to Serengeti then back to Dar se Salamm. Take ferry to Zanzibar.
      If we travel 6 hours from Kisoro to Bukoba we can take a boat at night across Lake Victoria to the Serengeti area .....what kind of travel can we use from there. We have reservations at the Tanzanice Farm.
      Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Is there a bicycle shop in Entebbe? I need to purchase a specific bolt for a bicycle that can probably only be found in a bike shop, rather than a hardware store.

      We are a group of 6 Australians travelling to Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania in September 2014 - can someone advise the procedure of obtaining an East African Tourist Visa (the Visa that you can enter Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya on) on arrival at Entebbe Airport and how long do we expect to line up for it? Our flight arrives around 1.00pm on a Saturday.

      Gorilla trekking

      Has anyone heard of a company called AA Adventures Ltd based in Uganda? I have had 3 quotes, all similar prices (which is expensive as a single traveller!), one from a company in Rwanda called Bizidanny tours, which somebody recommended, an English company called Rainbow Tours & AA Adventures. Part of me thinks it would be better to go with locals as the English company will have little control on what guides they use but worried I won't be covered by the others if anything goes wrong. Any thoughts or ideas appreciated!

    • Weather in Late November

      Uganda Apr 2, 2014 at 11:56 AM

      I understand October and November are the 'short' rainy season. Does this mean that its likely to rain every day non-stop, or just for a few hours per day? My plan was to visit in late November and travel through Uganda,Rwanda and maybe Burundi overland. Is the weather likely to affect road travel between main towns at this time?

    • Rent House in Uganda, Possible Buying home

      Uganda Dec 16, 2013 at 7:28 AM


      I am living in America but need a home to rent in Uganda. I am looking for a home with at least 3 bedrooms and at least 2 bathrooms. It must be in a fairly safe area. I'm looking at somewhere between Kampala and Entebbe. I am looking to pay under $400 a month. It does not need to be fancy, obviously, but it does need to have water and electricity available. An alternative to this, which I would actually prefer, is to buy a home in the same area. I'm just not sure about how to go about getting a mortgage loan for there since I live in America. I'm looking to do this in the next month, so I need some help please. I've tried working with Ugandan real estate agents lately and am not getting anywhere very quickly, so I need yall's help!

      Thank you!!
