Entebbe

Does anyone know the approximate cost for a regular taxi from the airport to Entebbe? The guesthouse I am staying in is only 9K's away and they want to charge me $15 for an airport pick up. That seems like a lot to me.

Thanks!

Hi Uganda Experts,

I recently finished a road trip through Uganda, and just put together this little article of tips, tricks and resources. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for it. All comments are welcome, and thanks for your help.

Hi there,

I'm travelling to Uganda soon and was wandering what is the best way to get from Fort Portal to the Murchison falls NP?
Everywhere I searched it seems the recommendation is to go back to Kampala and then to Murchison Falls, but I'm hoping the roads or something have changed since, and would rather go straight from A to B...

Does anyone have a recommendation?

Cheers

Bwindi

Hi, I am going to head to Uganda within the next couple weeks. I have been considering going to Bwindi while I'm there, but have been hesitant, due to the attack in Beni last week and general warnings about the border. In case anybody has recently been there or lives in the region, I'd be very interested in your take.

Do you think it's good idea to go to Bwindi right now, or take the extra precaution and spend time somewhere else?

Hi,
I will be end my trip in Kisoro in the eveining (20 February) and have a plane to catch back to Europe on the next day, late evening in Entebbe. I know one could fly from Kisoro to Entebbe for about 350$ but I wonder if anybody knows how long the bus (10$) takes and when they run. My internet search was the not very fruitful (google maps route duration estimates apparently not reliable in Uganda)... it must be something between 6-11 hours. Anybody any first hand experience?
thanks for any…

I am looking to go from Luweero to the Entebbe Airport, but do the journey in 2 segments. I would need to travel from Luweero to Kampala on Aug 23 but then continue my journey to Entebbe on Aug 25. Would this be possible at all? And if so for how much?

Also it would be amazing to get recommendations of hotels that offer free airport shuffles that are close to Kampala.

Any advice would be amazing! Thanks in advance.

Dear All,

Can anyone recommend a good tour company that I can use to go on a 3 day Gorilla trek in Bwini National Park please departing and returning from either Entebbe or Kampala?

I am planning to go at the beginning of September and will be travelling alone but the companies that I have found do not cater for single travellers and ask for the booking of a minimum of 2 people.

As I will be short of time I would like to travel with a company rather than independently.

Many thanks,
Sarah

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?

Hi,

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?

Thanks!
