Lush landscapes, excellent wildlife and welcoming locals. An African adventure destination like no other.
Best time to visit
Best time to visit Uganda is all year-round. Due to its location by the equator, the temperatures are steadily around 25°C during daytime.
Money saving tips
My best tips are to self drive in a rental, eat local market food, travel during the low season and camp instead of staying at pricey safari lodges.
The daily suggested budget for Uganda is $100-150 USD, assuming you hire a car, cook food and sleep at campsites. Lodges are pricey.
Favourite thing to do
While gorilla trekking was an amazing experience of a lifetime, I also really enjoyed doing a horse riding safari at Lake Mburo NP.
Uganda is full of natural wonders, with lush landscapes and stunning scenery waiting to be discovered. Soar above the treetops in a hot air balloon, take in breathtaking views of Africa’s highest mountain range along the Rwenzori Mountains, or explore Lake Victoria and its many islands.
Learn about local culture through traditional music and dance, or try your hand at craft making. Uganda has something for everyone – come and explore!
