Hi,

Could try getting u some information. However, do you already have a budget? How long do you plan to stay in Kampala? Kampala is large so would you prefer to stay near your place of internship for convenience, which could be? Safe place, easily accessible to public transport, etc? You all want share one bedroom as well?

I think we can go up to 1000 US Dollars/month. Preferably near the Mulago hospital. So 5 bedrooms (or boys rooms or studyrooms where you can place a bed). Would also be nice if it is furnished, since we only stay for 3 months.

Travel Tips for Kampala

Exchange Rate

by Greatwalk0

When traveling with USD to exchange into local currency in-country, note that the exchange rate given for U.S. Dollar bills in demoninations less than $100 receive a lower exchange rate, than $100 bills do. The difference in rate can be quite signifigant -- approximately 15% less. Plan accordingly!

Currencey Exchange

by georeiser

Currency exchange or forex burea are found many places in the city. You will get a slighly less rate at the airport than in Kampala. One dollar was 2100 Ugandian Shilling at the airport and 2200 Ugandian Shilling in Kabalagala area in Kampala (June 2010). (See picture)

Chewing mariungi

by muguruki

Popular all over east Africa not just Uganda is the mildly narcotic stimulant miraa. It is ridiculously cheap in Kampala.

If you fancy a chew the best place to buy miraa is behind the Nakivubo stadium not far from the restaurant called Nakivubo Uhuruu. you will see all the way up the alleys alongside the restaurant women who in the main look like they are all Muslim, selling the "flowers of paradise".

A good handful, worth 1000ugs is usually enough to do the biz for me. The idea is to chew the leaves with little bits of Big G (bubble gum) which helps to keep the green mass together in your mouth and so stop little bits from falling down the back of your throat. You are not supposed to swallow the leaves just chew them for a few hours then you will feel speedy for the rest of the night. Smart!

Mzungu = white = money

by croisbeauty

As already mentioned in my intro, Ugandans look to me like lulled into a deep sleep. Is it so all the time, not really, because the moment they see mzungu they are waked up. Mzungu means whiteman in swahili but to them it has one meaning only, the MONEY.
I had impression that everybody around wanted to take advantage of me, no matter wheater asking it (small money as they say it) or selling something. If paying for taxi or buying something you have to ask for a change, if not they wont give it to you. When strolling around, a lot of people ask me to give them money for food, transportation or whatsoever. The more you give the more they ask you, seems like they just cannot stop asking for more.

Hard job to do

by croisbeauty

Doing boda-boda job isn't easy because this guys have to be on the roads day and night under all wheater conditions. Their average charge for a ride is about 200 to 500 shillings, which is about 10 to 25 cents only. To get one euro only, they have to make five to ten rides! I am not sure they can earn more than 100 euros per month after covering all expensies.
Most of them virtualy live on their motorbikes. This is one of my favourite pictures from Kampala.
