UGANDA IS SURPRISINGLY nimble when it comes to transportation and finding your way around the country, with the most popular method being through booking with one of the many companies available to transport you from meeting to meeting in your own car or bus depending on the size of your party.
If you were to choose this manner of transportation, you are likely to save copious amounts of time that could have been wasted in looking for where to go and arranging transportation.
Of course there are many other options available. In Kampala in particular - as well as other destinations - the boda-boda is a very good way to get from place to place. Perhaps more recognisable as the mode of transport for the adventurous type, these small moped type vehicles with cushions on the back are a cheap form of transport often used by locals. Although it will provide you with an authentic experience, do take caution if you choose to try this as they are often involved in accidents.
Depending on the area in which you are staying, you will find that Uganda has a good public bus system that runs on fixed routes in the form of minibuses or commuter vans. You will find that both forms are relatively cheap and efficient when running between the major centres.
The roads you are met with in Uganda are in good condition in comparison to many located in subSaharan Africa, although they have deteriorated in patches. Many of the minor roads are made of hard-packed soil and although predominantly fine, if there have been heavy rains then they can quickly become treacherous.
