    souvenir shop

    There is a small souvenir shop inside the park with a typical craft products, mostly drums musical instruments and wooden masks. It was my first day in Uganda and I didn't buy any souvenir in the shop, considering that offer in Kampala will be much better, but my friends bought a souvenir for me. It was a black colored t-shirt with the inscription "mzungu", which in Swahili means a white man....

    MTN: Sim card registration

    by muguruki Updated Mar 19, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Getting a sim card in Uganda used to be a doddle then M7's mob decided "for security reasons" that everyone had to register to get a sim card. I was told before I got to UG that I would have to take a photo and some ID (passport or driving license). So up I strolled to the MTN shop in Entebbe town and bought a new sim from the helpfull girl behind the counter, my old sim didn't work which I tried as soon as I arrived. It cost me 3000UGX handed over my passport, the young lady then SMSed my details off to wherever and I was registered. No need for a photo! It was all easy peasy.

    So I bought 5000UGX worth of credit and called Mama to tell her I hadn't got malaria.

    What to pay: 3000UGX

    Very handy if you are coming or going to the airport as this place gives better rates than the Forex at the airport arivals hall but not quite as good as those in Kampala.

    Kitoro market: IF ITS TUESDAY IT MUST BE KITORO

    by muguruki Written Jun 2, 2009

    If it’s Tuesday it must be Kitoro. The small market that exists most days of the week here on Tuesdays becomes a much bigger affair with all the usual foods and second hand cloths.
