Travel tips

Solo female travelers should take the same kinds of precautions that they would anywhere else: Mwanzo Tours Uganda will advise you on what areas to avoid when you’re in a city, don’t walk by yourself on quiet streets after dark and don’t flaunt your valuables. Ugandan women tend to dress conservatively (always covering their knees) so if you want to minimize drawing attention to yourself, wear shorts or skirts that cover your knees, and t-shirts that aren’t too tight. The safest form of transport in a city is a private taxi.

It’s best not to hike alone in case anything goes wrong, so if you can, meet up with another traveler or take a guide from Mwanzo Tours when going on hikes. If you do go hiking or driving by yourself in remote areas, make sure you tell someone what your route is before you leave.
