Uganda What to Pack

  • A headlamp is absolutely invaluable

    Unglamorous though they may seem, these headlights are invaluable if you're travelling in the developed world.Many camps in less developed areas are reliant on generators for their power, which usually only operate for limited hours (a fact that you'll appreciate if you're a light sleeper). Should you wish to read after the gennie is turned off,...

  • Case or pack?

    I have often wondered how I can keep all my clobber and personal belongings secure in my back pack. Over the years I have experimented with various locks that can pass through the holes of the zips or have in the past even fitted eyes similar to what you might have on your shoes to make somewhere to put a small pad lock. I usually now carry a small...

  • There's a hole in my sink dear Nyabo...

    A lot of washbasins in Uganda or even east Africa do not have a plug for the sink. For some reason they do not seem to think that they are necessary. I for one can not have a shave without a bowl full of water.So if you need a sink full of water either bring your own or either by one when you get here. The pug I am using now is one that I had...

  • Cloths made out of cotton fabrics only

    It is up to everyone traveller alone to make a choice, I prefer huge "samsonite" plastic bag. Make sure your bag have up to 20 kg. of weight because, in case of flying from Nairobi to Entebbe, like I did, overweight will be charged. I had to pay additional 1.500 ksh for 5 killos over the limit.To those who practice buying cloths during their...

  • Things I should have taken

    My friends and I had suitcases, rucksacks and backpacks between us. All were fine really, but the backpack was best when we had to lug all our stuff up the road in Kampala. If you go for suitcases - wheels are a good idea but only on paved areas! An unbrella came in handy So wish I took a stronger sunblock (I took factor 25). Being British and...

  • Pills for Malaria

    As in almost all of the Sub-saharan countries, there is malaria in Uganda, so you must take some pills. If you're going to be there for less than 1 month, I recommend you to take MALARONE. You have to start taking them the day before you travel, one everyday, and during one week more when coming back home. In Spain is allowed to take them for a...

  • Eveready

    Hard- wearing bags are necessary to withstand long dusty safaris. Most undertakings require simple and light cotton clothing which doesn´t absorb heat. However, you will need a pullover for late evening hours and garniture for going out.As for shoes, you need strong sandals and water proof shoes for rainy times. Carry all basic medical supplies...

  • Packing List

    Rugged backpacks are the best, since you'll be throwing your bags in buses, taxis, and the back of trucks. Backpacks are much more practical than wheeled luggage, unless you're doing a high end tour where you'll be dropped off at your hotel's front door every day (UPDATE: My wife probably wouldn't agree - she would've preferred wheeled luggage - I...
