COVID-19 Updates

Why you should visit Uganda now! 

We encourage you to book and explore this magnificent country now more than ever. The people need it, wildlife protection can become under pressure due to lack of income from tourism, and having such iconic parks as Queen Elizabeth to yourself is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Good to know that lodges offer great discount prices and you will have the parks to yourself. Moreover, it will be very easy to apply social distancing over here, when going on a self-drive safari and camping in the bush. Do we need to say more? Read below about the latest COVID updates and practicalities and our no risk payment terms.

Uganda entry requirements and corona travel regulations

Since the 1st of October 2020, Uganda has opened its airspace again and travellers from overseas don’t have to go in quarantine. Since, we have received hundreds of Roadtrippers in Uganda. Restaurants, Lodges, campsites and National Parks are open, just as usual. 

  • All travellers (including children) irrespective of vaccination status or country of origin, are required to arrive with a negative PCR test, based on a sample not older than 72 hours (3 days).
  • When entering a public space like a supermarket or government building, wearing a face mask is required and you have to sanitise your hands and your temperature will be scanned.
  • When going to a restaurant or sitting at a terrace, you don't need to wear a face mask. Good to know, most restaurants and terraces are partly or fully all fresco, with plenty of air flow.

Where can I get a PCR test done in Uganda?

Getting a PCR test and/ or rapid antigen test done in Uganda is easy. There are reputable laboratories who offer walk in, drive through or even at home testing service. We recommend TestXpress and Test and Fly.  Labs are open 24/7, appointments can easily be made online, and same day results are possible.
