Getting tourist visas for Uganda:
This is probably the least complicated process in Uganda. The tourist visas are available at the different ports of entry such as the Entebbe International Airport or the border points if crossing into Uganda by road. The current charge for a tourist visa for visitors from outside East Africa is UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONE HUNDRED (US$100) but free for all residents in the East Africa region.
TRAVELLING BY ROAD IN UGANDA:
Uganda, a small landlocked country is heavily dependent on its road network for promotion of all its economic activities. As a result, the Government of Uganda has committed to the development of its road infrastructure and therefore, we have some of the longest road networks in the regions. Most of the roads in the main cities and towns are tarmacked but those inner roads (such as those in and around the parks) are murram dirt roads.
