What you need to know about crime, scams, health and local laws to travel with confidence

When it comes to considering travel to Uganda, safety is often a concern. However, we are pleased to reassure our clients that the destinations we recommend are generally safe, as long as certain precautions are taken. Over the past decade, we have successfully sent hundreds of travellers to Uganda without incident. The key is knowing what to do and what not to do, both in terms of geography and logistics. To ensure a safe and enjoyable trip to Uganda, we’ve put together the following helpful safety tips.

Starting from the moment of arrival in Uganda, a team of experienced professionals from Msafiri Tours will be there to assist you. It’s important to remember that no matter where you travel, certain safety precautions should always be taken. Ensuring incident-free travel is largely about making informed decisions. We recommend starting off by researching Uganda as a destination and by following these ten essential safety tips:

1. Always be aware of your destination before starting your journey, especially when travelling at night.
2. Avoid walking alone in dark, quiet places. It is better to use a taxi or dedicated transfer provided by Msafiri Tours.
3. Unless you are part of a guided tour by Msafiri Tours, avoid visiting informal settlement areas.
4. Do not flaunt cash or valuables in public.
5. Extra caution is necessary when dining at restaurants or cafes, withdrawing money from ATMs, or touring popular sights.
6. Always drive with locked doors and rolled-up windows.
7. Avoid wearing expensive jewelry in public.
8. Be attentive to your surroundings.
9. Always safeguard your belongings, particularly your passport which should be kept in a hotel safe. Always ensure that your hotel room is locked.
10. Beware of scams – if something sounds too good to be true, it’s most likely a scam.

It is essential to note that these safety guidelines apply exclusively to your time in Uganda. Although it has its imperfections, Uganda is a beautiful country full of unique experiences. For anyone searching for authentic travel escapades, Uganda should be considered a top-rated destination. If you would like to plan an ideal Ugandan adventure, do not hesitate to contact Msafiri Tours.
