You should pack the following:

Kit for all weather conditions including:

  • 2/3 shorts/skirts
  • 1 jacket/anorak
  • Tracksuit/pullover
  • 2 pairs of long pants/jeans
  • 2 pairs of walking shoes/boots/trainers

  • 2/3 Long Sleeve Shirts
  • Smart casual change of clothes
  • Swimwear
  • Underwear & socks
  • Sun Hat – preferably that covers the back of your neck.
  • Raincoat
  • Kikoi/sarong

Your clothing should be easy to wash and dry and should preferably not need ironing.  Avoid synthetics, which can be very uncomfortable in hot weather.  Many people underestimate how cold Uganda can be – remember your jersey/jacket!  There are also nights that are warm but you must still wear clothes that cover arms and legs from mosquitoes, or there are days that are warm but nights that are freezing so plan carefully.  Take a set of casual but smart clothes for the occasional evening out in a restaurant or clubs.  If you wear glasses (or contacts) it is also advisable to bring a spare pair along.
