But once's you land in this wonderful country, you are mesmerized by the beautiful lake around you, the breezy weather and clear sky with thick candy floss like clouds.
I can go on and on about this beautiful and fertile country therefore, let me just summarize about this place in 5 must dos.
5 things that you cannot afford to miss in Uganda -
1. Visit Kampala - the heart of Uganda
Kampala is the capital of Uganda, the drive from airport to kampala is around 1.5hrs with moderate traffic. The roads are lovely and gives you a chance to just sit back and observe the daily lives of Ugandans. When in Kampala, you can stay at the following depending on your budget -
Sheraton Kampala - Very expensive but one of the most safe hotels with the best breakfast buffet in town. The approx cost per night is - 220-250 $
Hotel Protea Kampala - My preferred choice as this is a good hotel with average breakfast but not too heavy on pocket. The approx cost per night is - 190 -200 $
Arcadia Suites - This is a boutique hotel with very small rooms but is newly constructed and if you are on a tight budget this is the best place to sleep for the night. The approx cost per night is - 120 $
2. Acacia Mall, Kampala
While in Kampala, this mall is one stop shop for most of your needs from food to shopping to entertainment. The mall has Nakumatt - one of the biggest departmental store chains in Uganda. For the movie buffs there is a movie theater where even recent Bollywood movies also play. But one thing and my favourite must visit is Caffesserie - one of the best coffee shops in Uganda.
This place has the best food, lovely ambiance and sweets to die for.
