If you a foreign resident of any country outside East Africa, you obviously need a passport for Uganda travel. The Passport is all you present at all entry points to the country either at the boarder or international Airport.

Since all your essentials are in a particular corner, it’s always easy to allocate them.

Rain Jacket for Adults & Children

On every simple trip done in Uganda, you need to carry a rain jacket since you can’t predict nature and it can shower any time. Even in the dry months it can rain in any corner of the country so it may be one of the places you may have visited on a particular day. In such occasions having a rain jacket is a great way to enjoy your trip even when it drizzles. Since its light it’s easy to carry in your daypack.

Medium size Back Bag

Do you want to go on safari in Uganda?, it’s good to carry a good medium size bag to carry a few staff for your trip every day since you can’t carry all your luggage to the field. It should be perfect and easy to move with and light weight. Please get one of your favorite since they are many in various colors.

Rolling Suitcase

This type of suitcase is perfect to move with in streets and places with no elevators especially when used to carry Uganda safari luggage. It comes with many pockets, compartments and has self-repairing zippers hence the best bag to pack everything for a trip abroad.

First Aid Kit

We encourage all travelers to Uganda to carry first aid kits just in case one getting a rare unusual feeling. Sometimes you may get discomfort or get a cut but the first aid kit help you to go back to your normal state without even visiting a hospital. Don’t forget to carry anti malaria and some capsules that absorb toxins in case of food poisoning in your body system.

Insect Repellant

On your upcoming trip to see gorillas, chimpanzees and wildlife in Uganda, the insect repellant is one of the main items every traveler has to carry to stop insect bites in rain forests. So insect repellants are very essential for any trip to Uganda.
