Fueling your car
No one would love to be cheated any single dollar, so it is important to know the fuel prices while in Uganda.
To save at the fuel pump, you need to first scout around town for cheap fuel prices before you fill your tank. Some fuel stations offer different oil prices depending on the competition in the different localities and towns.
When you need fuel, just put it in and pay the Pump attendant in cash. Always remember to ask for a receipt if you need accountability. You could arrange for the driver to have a float and you settle later but it is just so much simpler to pay yourself as you go. Take it full, bring it back full: Such arrangements are not particularly common in Uganda. When you’re travelling to remote areas of Uganda and you need more than 100 litres of Diesel, be sure to first calculate the amount of fuel you will need. The formula is 1 litter for every 7Km works for most diesel cars multiply by the distance, multiply by 2, then multiply by the prevailing cost of diesel in Uganda. Once you know the amount of fuel you need, fill your tank. Please note that there some fake fuel stations with unbalanced scales, especially if you’re buying much fuel.
Buying all your fuel from Kampala will help you save on your fuel costs as you may find the price of the fuel doubled in some remote districts of Uganda. In regions like Karamoja you might even find no fuel in a whole district at the time you need it, therefore you remain safe buying all your fuel for the trip at once, near Kampala where fuel prices are relatively reasonable because of the stiff competition though some remote fuel stations hike the fuel prices.
Some Ugandan drivers normally assume that it is better to fuel your car very early in the morning or very late in the evening when the sun is setting. Their reasoning is that there is reduced vaporization of the fuel in the tank and thus the fuel tends to stay longer in the vehicle when the car is fuelled during these times of the day!
Every time that you re-fuel, check your oil and other fluid levels. Look for noticeable leaks throughout the engine compartment.
Uganda has Safe, Secure Lodges and Hotels:
Hotels and lodges in Uganda are very secure and you will be surprised by the security that is exhibited by many of them even as you enter by vehicle into the premises such as the Serena Hotel or the Sheraton Hotel in Kampala. Let it be a 2 or 3 star accommodation. Security is paramount in Uganda. We choose safe and secure lodges for you both in Kampala and in the National Parks of Uganda.
You will be surprised that most often the security at a hotel or lodge is armed – they most likely have not used their weapons in many years but it is there for the added security for visitors to Uganda.
Uganda National Park Security addressed.
Any tourist would have varying questions of how their safety will be in Uganda’s National Parks.
On every game drive in Uganda’s national parks, an armed ranger is with you for your protection. The same is true on every hike or nature walk.
The Uganda government has even added Tourism Police for added security for visitors to the various parks, hotels, and various places where tourists flock too. Your well-being is on everyone’s mind and security in parks is practiced in the most diligent manner in Uganda.
Tourism is a top-income earner for Uganda and no one wants to jeopardize the goose that lays the golden egg.
Crime, specifically violent crime has reduced significantly in Uganda. A sharp increase in the number of police on the street has cut reported incidents of crime in half in the Kampala metropolitan area according to the Inspector General of Police. The U.S. Mission has also observed a decrease in reported crimes. Pick-pocketing, “snatch and run” thefts (including from occupied and unoccupied vehicles) along with other petty and opportunistic crimes are still common in Kampala but rarely involve acts of violence
