Where is Uganda located?

Uganda, also known as the pearl of Africa is located in East Africa, bordered by Kenya to the east, South Sudan to the north, the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west, Rwanda to the southwest, and Tanzania to the south.


What is the Currency Used in Uganda:

The currency used in Uganda is the Ugandan Shilling (UGX). While US dollars are widely accepted in major tourist areas and establishments, it's advisable to carry some local currency for smaller purchases and transactions.


What are some traditional foods and drinks to try in Uganda?

Uganda offers a diverse array of traditional foods and beverages that reflect its rich culinary heritage. Among the must-try dishes are matoke, which consists of steamed green bananas, luwombo, a flavorful stew made with meat, vegetables, and groundnuts wrapped in banana leaves, and ugali, a maize flour-based staple. Another popular street food is the Rolex, a chapati rolled with eggs and vegetables, enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.


In addition to these savory delights, Uganda also offers a variety of traditional beverages. For a unique taste of local flavors, try banana beer, a fermented beverage made from ripe bananas, or ajon, a traditional brew crafted from millet or sorghum. These traditional drinks provide a refreshing and authentic taste of Ugandan culture.

The best time to go on a safari in Uganda is during the dry seasons, which typically occur from December to February and June to August. During these months, the weather is generally dry and sunny, making it easier to spot wildlife in national parks and reserves.

A great company to travel with.."mond safaris uganda " It was our first time in Uganda, me and wife booked a wildlife tour to Murchison falls National Park, at the time of inquiry, we received a shift reply from mond safaris Uganda team, responding quickly to all our questions. our guide made the entire Murchison Falls tour exceptional ,,, trust me we don't regret every dollar spent on our trip, the quality service we got right away from the time of arrival at the Entebbe airport until the end of the safari was more than worthy our money. I recommend this company to anyone planning a Uganda safari this season!!!

Exciting and Humbling Mondi Safaris is quick to respond and has a better appreciation of what we were trying to achieve than the other companies, and the price was friendly and better. Mondi Safaris put together a full itinerary (which he communicated to us prior) including Queen Elizabeth National Park, Murchison Falls, Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi, and some street art and ended up at the Markets. Mondi Safaris met us at our apartment in Entebbe Town near the Airport and walked with us to the taxi ride to and from the street art, to save time. Mondi Safaris obviously provided a running commentary during the tour but also gave us an interesting insight into the recent history of Uganda, as well as providing tips on other things to see and places to eat in Uganda. Highly recommended.

Extraordinary Travel with Mond Safaris ASAP! I recently returned from a trip to Uganda and had the pleasure to travel with Jose from Mond. One of the highlights of my trips was seeing the mountain gorillas. I flew to the location, Jose drove the long 10 hours to meet me and travel with me around the amazing sites around Uganda. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable as a tour guide, he is very personable, and will make your experience unforgettable. You will feel like you've known him for years after a few hours. Traveling through the wildlife parks and additional sites was an extraordinary experience with Jose. Further, he has knowledge far beyond that of any guide I have traveled with when it comes to issues that involve the vehicle you are traveling in, routes that should be taken to avoid delays etc. Every morning you will find him hard at work cleaning your vehicle, checking the oil, and preparing to gather your bags. This is man that takes care of your every need. He will take special care to be sure you are booked at the best lodges/camps with views that will take your breath away and staff that go above and beyond to be sure your stay(s) are perfect. Mond is open to any suggestions or options from the client and will got out of their way to be sure your trip is personalized, perfect and one that will be a "once in a lifetime"......although you will want to come back!!!! Book your travel with Mond without blinking any eye. I have already booked mine!!! Of note- there is a question below that asks if the locations was exciting, unusual or risky- Everything was exciting and unusual. Nothing was risky, Uganda is very safe especially when you are traveling with Mond.
