    • 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?

      thanks

    • Rent House in Uganda, Possible Buying home

      Uganda Dec 16, 2013 at 7:28 AM

      Hi,

      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!!

      Uganda Oct 8, 2013 at 10:22 AM

      Hi there,

      We are planning a 9-days trip to Uganda (25 oct. to 03 nov.), we are a family of 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 9 & 7). We are thinking to spend three days at Murchison Falls park and then head for three days to a nice island in Lake Victoria to relax, before ending our trip in Kampala.

      I would appreciate to receive ideas and suggestions on which island to select: we are interesting to beautiful beaches suitable for swiming, and something of good value for money.

      Thanks in advance

      3 weeks itinerary.

      Uganda Sep 26, 2013 at 12:24 PM

      I need some help for planning my 3 weeks next February please :-) I'm travelling alone and arrive late in the evening.
      I’m used to travelling on my own, but have never been in Africa before. Will it be a good choice to start with 2 night at a guesthouse in Entebbe, and then go on an organised tour with for example Gorilla Tours. They have a ”Gorillas & Chimps” 5 days tour. And then after the tour travel on my own with public transport. Or do you experts have a better suggestion for a 3 weeks itinerary ? I guess the best way to go on a gorilla tracking tour is with a tour company, also for buying the permit ? Thank you. Best regards Jesper

    • Uganda in 7 days

      Uganda Sep 10, 2013 at 11:58 PM

      Hello all!
      I have seven days off work in early October and thought I'd use the time to visit and explore Uganda.
      I know it's not a lot of time, so I'm asking for any highlights/recommendations/itinerary suggestions/routes that I can cover in this time. I'll be flying into Entebbe. My interests are varied (I'm a curious person!) - wildlife/nature, culture/anthropology/people, adventure, history. I don't mind roughing it.

      Any ideas would be most welcome.

      Many thanks!

      Cut price gorilla trekking permits

      Uganda Aug 19, 2013 at 8:48 AM

      Hi
      Again, there's nowhere obvious to post this, but given that it's a stonking USD150 saving on the usual permit rate (and I have no commerical interests whatsoever in this), I thought that I'd share the good news that Uganda Wildlife Authority is offering discount gorilla permits for the month of November 2013, at 'only' $350 USD (whilst permits last).
      Regards

      Religion & Culture

      Uganda Apr 9, 2013 at 7:26 PM

      From what I have been reading on line, most of the people are very religious with the largest number being "Born Again" and Evangelical, and don't drink or smoke. Which brings up my question to you who know or have stayed with local people. Would it be appropriate to bring a deck of cards as a gift. This deck of cards is special as it has beautiful photos of where I live the Island of Kauai.
      However, it might be an considered an insult if it was looked on as an item for gambling and is against their religion? Of course, some of our hosts could be Catholic, which would then be acceptable., unless it is against their culture as well.??
