FAQS FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The official languages of Uganda are English and Swahili. However, Nilotic, Central Sudanic, and Bantu are also commonly spoken.
A visa is required to travel to Uganda from Canada and the United States. Presently, visitors must apply online for it before traveling as they will be asked for a barcoded email upon arrival. A legal passport is compulsory and must be valid for a minimum of 6 months past the expected date of departure from Uganda.
Internet access is readily available in most big city hotels, usually for a small fee. There are only a few luxury Uganda safari camps in Uganda with internet access.
Most tourists who have traveled to Uganda stated to not see more than 4 or 5 mosquitoes a day. Those traveling at other times of the year can encounter more insects. However, the positive aspects of the Uganda safari experience far outweigh the annoyance caused by insects for most tourists.
The ideal time to visit Uganda is between June and September as this is the dry season. However, temperatures remain tepid year-round due to its proximity to the equator.
It is recommended to wear brown, grey, or khaki-colored clothing from June through October, and green clothing from November through May to avoid signaling the wildlife of your presence. White and other bright colors are not recommended to wear as white which gets dirty very fast and blue attracts tsetse flies, but not enough to worry about. Camouflage clothing is not allowed.

Tourists are suggested to bring cool, comfortable clothes, that can keep you warm at night or on game drives. Bring a pair of sandals, comfortable walking shoes, a hat to block the sun, and a swimsuit. There is no need to bring heavy boots.
In most cases, it is safe to eat all of the foods provided by cottages and camps as they take great care of food health. However, to evade stomach bugs, avoid putting ice cubes in drinks (most places utilize distilled water for ice cubes so simply ask if you are concerned), eat only thick-skinned fruits that are peeled like bananas, and oranges, and avoid eating salads. It is recommended to consume just bottled drinks which are readily available. Don’t gulp water during a shower and use purified water for brushing your teeth. Ask to open the water bottle in front of you as they may try to reuse the vessel at some of the bigger, but lower-quality hotels.
The ideal time to visit Uganda for wildlife exploration is during the dry season. During the rains, wildlife is dispersed as there is ample surface water, i.e., perennial rivers, and puddles, for them to consume. After the rains end, wildlife assembles around remaining surface water supplies i.e., lakes, pools, and large rivers.
