Uganda has a lot to offer our tourists and guests, however; like any nation, we have hidden dangers that are not within our control and we have successfully eliminated that danger by ensuring that our tourists travel in groups, always in the company of a tour guide and often with security guides at a moment’s notice.
Our mission is your constant safety. We have information that will eliminate any risks you may not anticipate and we will be there to guide you during every second of your Safari tour.
Our government is also dedicated to solving any safety concerns. We understand your concern and we will take every conceivable action in order to grant you the peace of mind you will need during your tour.
We have drafted security measures that will enable minimal exposure to any danger during your stay in Uganda and upon arrival at our Safari.
“Uganda is also home to the source of River Nile, the longest river in the world, Lake Victoria, the largest freshwater lake in Africa, and Mt Rwenzori, the legendary mountains of the moon, the only mountain in the world with a snow cap on the equator. Uganda has 10 national parks, 12 wildlife reserves, 10 wildlife sanctuaries, 5 community wildlife management areas, and 506 central forest reserves each with unique endowments:
For example, Murchison Falls National Park is home to lions, elephants, leopards, buffaloes, giraffes, and lots of other species, and the spectacular waterfalls while Queen Elizabeth National Park boasts of big five, the spectacular Kazinga Channel, and climbing lions. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest offers true pristine and virgin tropical forests with Mountain Gorillas, tropical forest elephants, Chimpanzees and a host of birds and primates.”- Ministry of Tourism, Wildlife, and Antiquities.
How to stay safe while traveling in Africa
- Don’t walk alone at night anywhere, ever. Take a taxi even if it’s short distances.
- Always use a licensed taxi or one recommended by your accommodation. In major African cities, you can often use Uber.
- Travel during the day. The roads are often poorly lit at night and accidents are known to occur due to the potholes in the roads. There have also been some incidences of carjackings, particularly at night, in major South African (Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, and South Africa) cities.
- Do not drink alcohol excessively or leave your drinks unattended.
- Always listen to your guides, especially when staying in a national park – wild animals are everywhere and you have to respect that you are in their territory.
- In big cities, do the dummy wallet trick: Keep a small amount of cash and some canceled cards in your purse so that if someone demands it you can easily hand it over, and keep the rest hidden in your bra, or shoes, or locked in the hotel safe.
- Don’t wear expensive jewelry or be flashy. Take caution when looking at your phone in public, it’ll draw attention.
- It’s important to respect the local culture and dress appropriately, covering shoulders, cleavage, and legs in some places such as Zanzibar, much of Tanzania, and most of northern Africa including Morocco.
