Has anybody tried to enter Uganda with an yellow fever certificate more than 10 years old since the WHO recommendations changed recently? Apparently all certificates should now be automatically valid for life but wonder whether this has come into force at the borders yet?
We were told that we should apply for Visa online before leaving to Uganda and Kenya, but the website doesn't work. We have a flight to Uganda in a week.
Does anybody know if you still are able to buy a visa in the airport in Entebbe?
Hi, I'm leaving for Uganda tomorrow to trek to the Margherita Peak, which stands at 5109m. I'm looking for travel insurance that covers both helicopter rescue and trekking to that height -- has anybody got any recommendations?

How much of the route can be done independently (arrive at the area/NP and find a guide there) and what should we book in advance?

Dear travellers, I would like to shine some light on the northeastern region of Uganda by the name of Karamoja.

Has anyone purchased malaria prevention medication in Kampala/ Entebbe? I would like to purchase in Uganda at the start of our trip. In my home country USA, it is too expensive as I must pay a $300 consultation fee + cost of prescription, multiply this times the number of people in my family.

Wanted to let you know that there is a group offering hikes in Echuya Forest between Kisoro and Kabale. Very affordable place to see the rainforest (10pp). It's a very pretty place to hike with some amazing views. They also have a campground but only set up for self sufficient campers. Website is [www.echuya.wordpress.com](www.echuya.wordpress.com ).
