Gorillas and Chimpanzees  (11 Answers)

Hi I'm looking to go to Uganda in mid to late November 2016 for Gorilla and Chimpanzee trekking. I am traveling solo and I would appreciate any input. It looks like flying into Kigali in Rwanda is actually closer than Entebbe but all the tours seem to start from Entebbe and do the 8 - 10 hour drive, is the drive worth it? Are there any options? Is there anything else that should not be missed as long as I am in that part of the world? I have been to South Africa and Kruger Park. Thank you

What can I find in grocery stores in Uganda?  (4 Answers)

Hi,
In a few months I'll be going to Uganda for the very first time. I'll mostly be staying in Hoima, but will also travel to other cities such as Kampala and Entebbe. As I will be doing alot of shopping and cooking of my own, I was wondering what to expect finding in Ugandan grocery stores (and what not).
Hopefully someone is able to answer my question.

safety in Kampala under the current terrorist threats  (4 Answers)

wondering what frequent travelers to Uganda think about traveling with the recent terrorist attacks in Somalia and Kenya and with the US Embassy sending alerts on March 25 of information that warns of potential attacks in Kampala. We have another mission trip planned this June to Kampala and I'm not feeling like it's safe right now, my group has mixed feelings, some want to go anyway and some feel it's not safe for westerners who are Christians to be traveling to Kampala...any thoughts?

Is there any forum to find people planning a similar tour in Uganda at the same time  (2 Answers)

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  (2 Answers)

Hello!
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.
Regards,
Terri

Companay recommedation  (4 Answers)

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  (2 Answers)

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  (5 Answers)

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!!

Lake Victoria Islands  (1 Answer)

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.  (5 Answers)

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  (8 Answers)

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!
H

Cut price gorilla trekking permits  (10 Answers)

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
Cathy
