Kampala and Uganda are generally safe, both for walking and driving. Nevertheless, avoid walking on crowded streets in the downtown parts of the city during the evenings. These places include the taxi-parks, bus parks, Owino market, Namirembe Rd, and Ben Kiwanuka Road.
When walking on the street, do not carry with you attractive items like big handbags. Ladies handbags usually attract street robbers.
Culturally appropriate dressing is highly recommended.
Apart from the North Eastern ( Karamoja) regions of the country where there are security threats due to cattle rustling and cross border encounters from Kenya & Sudan by gangsters following the long civil war in the area , the rest of the country is calm, stable and peaceful. However we recommend that you seek advise from us or your hotel management where possible.
