Is kampala safe for expats  (5 Answers)

Hi,

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

Kampala Tree Top Restaurant  (9 Answers)

Can someone please tell me the name and address of a lovely restaurant in Kampala that is up a winding hill. The restaurant is open plan (ie the sides are open) and at the same level as the tree tops, so it looks like you are amongst the tree tops. It may be part of a small hotel. Lots of NGO workers go to eat there.

Also, can you tell me the names of some nice European style coffee shops/cafes for westerners in Kampala cente?

Thanks.

Where to stay / what to do?  (2 Answers)

Hi all,

I've just booked a trip to see the Gorillas in November (yay!!). I'll have some time at the end of the trip before my flight leaves and was wondering what you would do with that time. I'm not sure what time we'll get back to Kampala, but my flight leaves at 4pm the following day (Saturday). Thoughts?

So, here's the itinerary:

Day 1: Thursday
leave the campsite in Kampala at 8am. Kabale town, Lake Bunyonyi
Day 2: Friday
Kisoro
Day 3: Saturday
Rwanda, DR Congo or Uganda - Gorillas
Day 4: Sunday
Lake Bunyonyi
Day 5: Monday
Kampala
Day 6: Tuesday
Kampala
Day 7: Wednesday
Jinja - Bujagali Falls
Day 8: Thursday
Jinja - Bujagali Falls
Day 9: Friday
Jinja - Kampala


I wanted to go to the Chimp Sanctuary however my family won't allow it (Rabies). I thought I could book myself into a nice hotel and use the pool, but that's boring!

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Nat

Moving to Kampala July 2010

My husband and I will be moving to Kampala in July for about a year. I have a Rotary Club scholarship to study Peace and Conflict studies at Makerere and he will be looking for work for the year. We are trying to find an affordable place to live preferably a one-two bedroom place near main transportation routes. If possible we would like to live a semi-quiet area that is not completely taken over by expats... We won't be too picky but neither one of us is well-off and don't need a lot of the "extras" that most foreigners do. We will probably need a low-cost place to stay for the first month as well but I see some postings about that already. Also, another bonus, does anybody know about finding employment in Kampala? My husband has experience with about everything that involves working with your hands. Thanks!
Eve

kennel

I would like to identify a kennel in Kampala that would accept our house cat which will be arriving by air freight. I will be transfering to Kampala late next summer and to avoid all of the problems for the cat and ourselves it would be better if we could air freight our house cat to a good kennel in Kampala during the time we will take going home to the States for about one months time prior to arriving in Kampala.

A web page or e-mail address would be best but a phone number would suffice.
