Uganda is a generally safe country. Visitors must however remember that safety is of utmost importance at all times. Therefore like in any other country, ample safety measures must be taken, a trip to Uganda can be a delightful experience.
For many people, the name Uganda is synonymous with Idi Amin. However, Uganda is free of Idi Amin who died in 2003 and Uganda is far different from what it was during his regime. The political climate of the country is largely stable and visitors are welcomed warmly. People have overcome the hard times and are hospitable towards all. ‘Hello Mzungu’ is a greeting you will soon get used to while exploring Uganda. Ugandans are a truly wonderful community of people.
