  • Clothing & Packing Tips

    • Loose-fitting, layered clothing that can accommodate varying temperatures will be most comfortable. Quick-dry material is best for hot days outside and a warmer layer may be needed for chilly evenings and early mornings.
    • Wear muted colours for game drives, as bright clothing may scare animals away and blue or black clothing attracts tsetse flies.
    • Comfortable closed-toes shoes, such as sneakers or lightweight hiking boots, are best for walking during the day.
    • Pack a swimsuit as many of the hotels have pools that you are free to use at your leisure.
    • Sun protection is very important. Bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and a broad-brimmed hat to protect your face and the back of your neck from the sun.
    • Occasional rain showers are common during certain seasons, so lightweight rain-wear may be necessary depending on the timing of your trip.
    • Mosquito repellent, binoculars, and a flashlight are highly recommended.
    • A small bottle of hand sanitizer may be helpful when other facilities are not readily available while on the road.
    • Many African countries are adopting strict bans on plastic bags. We kindly advise you not to carry any.
  • Cuisine

    • Most of the cuisines you will encounter while on your tourism event experience are native (local). Other foreign cuisines are mainly British and Asian, this is so due to their earlier influence in these parts of Africa.
    • Africa is the true food basket of the world. Find all types of fruits including those you have never heard of before. Note that fruits that only grow in cold climate temperatures are not that common. though some can be accessed in selected super/mega market shops.
    • African Cuisine is a breathtaking experience on it's own right. Prepare your taste buds.

    • All hotels picked for your tourism event fall under mid-range. These normally have all the basic amenities you need for convenience.
    • Note that Uganda uses a Type G plug with three large, flat pins.

    • The currency you’ll be using on your tourism event is the Uganda shilling or US Dollars if you would like.
    • You may be able to purchase Uganda shillings in advance from your local bank or a foreign currency exchange retailer.
    • We recommend that you carry as little local cash as possible as well as small amounts of U.S. dollars (only crisp bills printed in 2004 or later).
    • ATMs are most readily available in Uganda, almost all towns have bank ATM Machines; while there, we recommend taking out cash in small bills to have on safari.
    • Major North American credit cards are accepted but can be difficult to use in remote locations (Visa and Mastercard is the most widely accepted).
    • International banks and businesses primarily accept debit and credit cards that work with the EMV chip system. If you do not already have at least one debit or credit card with a chip in it, we strongly recommend requesting one from your bank prior to your tour.
    • We suggest that you inform your bank and credit card company of your travel plans, so that they won’t confuse your international purchases for fraudulent charges.
  • Shopping

    • You will have the opportunity to shop for local handicrafts, such as wood carvings and textiles, at outdoor markets and roadside stalls. Some lodges will have souvenirs shops on the premises as well.
    • Prices at most markets are negotiable, so don't be afraid to bargain, it's a great way to strike up a conversation with a local.
  • Tipping

    Tipping tourism event guides or any service provider on your African tourism visit is something you do at your own discretion

    • At the conclusion of your tour, it’s customary to offer your driver/guide a gratuity in USD.
    • We advise tipping to be paid in cash.
  • Time zones

    • The world is divided longitudinally into time zones, with each hour difference roughly 15 degrees apart. Due to some countries having half hour time zones, there are more than 24 times zones in the world. Most countries, especially the smaller ones, have only one time zone.
    • A time zone is an area that observes a uniform standard time for legal, commercial and social purposes. All time zones are defined as offsets from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), ranging from UTC−12:00 to UTC+14:00.
    • Africa uses six time zones and thirteen standard time zone names to describe them. Africa time zone offsets range from UTC/GMT -1 to UTC/GMT + 4.
    • Uganda observes Eastern Africa Time (EAT) all year.
  • Travel Insurance

    Acquiring travel insurance for any tourism event is essential due to unforeseen inconveniences, so we recommend you get one before the start of your tourism event.

    Travel insurance is a plan you purchase that protects you from certain financial risks and losses that can occur while traveling. These losses can be minor, like a delayed suitcase, or significant, like a last-minute trip cancellation or a medical emergency overseas.
