What to Pack When Traveling to Uganda?

Are you packing for a travel to Uganda? Before packing your stuff for the trip, consider your itinerary and the season. What places in Uganda are you visiting? What are your activities? Once you have your itinerary in place, you can make a list of the things you are going to need, those that will go into your luggage.  Uganda has two seasons, the dry and the wet season. It has a temperature from 21-25°C or 70- 77°F. The mountainous area has a cooler temperature.

There are lots to go in Uganda. With Uganda having nature at its fullest, with majestic mountains, and various species of wild life, trekking tops the to-do list. The best time to trek would be during the dry months.  If in the list activities below you do not have those types of clothes, now is the best time to shop for them.

When you go tracking for wild life such as the well known Gorillas of Uganda, you will want to bring with you long pants, long sleeved tops, and garden gloves (trust me you are going to need garden gloves), and hiking boots.

When you go trekking to the mountains of Uganda, you will need to bring warm clothes. Temperature can drop considerably. Don’t pack white clothes, pack dull colour shirts. The roads in Uganda can really be dusty and white clothing can go dirty white.

Pack a raincoat too (sometimes it rains unexpectedly even during the dry season). Bonus – bring with you a traveller’s pack medicine and first aid kit. Don’t forget the antibiotics and aspirin. It may come in handy when the unexpected happens.
