setting up your camp on an island in the middle of a lake or on the rim of a
volcano surrounded by forest and watching your neighbours, mostly monkeys,
ferreting around you!
We don't recommend simply setting up camp anywhere and urge you to restrict
yourself to established camp sites. There are snakes and other wildlife
throughout Uganda around and a solitary tent in the middle of no-where leaves
you vulnerable, especially if you decide to pich up next to a river where there are hippos because they prowl and night and can be very aggressive. Here we list camping sites in Uganda that are established and where you can book
Others are available however many operate on a "turn up and see if we are open"
basis and given that most travelling in Western Uganda won't have their own
transport that doesn't always work out for the best especially if you find
yourself in the middle of no-where with dusk fast approaching.
If you know of other camping sites in Uganda get in touch and let us know
using our contact form and if you have stayed at these or other sites why not
write a review to let others know of your experience! We'd love to hear from
you! One last thing. If you are staying in Uganda as part of a wider visit to Africa, please avoid green tents. As strange as it sounds it's likely to be confiscated when you cross the border into a neighbouring country as the colour green has strong army connotations. Believe us, that's how we lost a tent crossing from Rwanda to Burundi!
