Health advices for Uganda

Advice: Get a travel health insurance in any case. These are available for a few Euros per year and cover your comprehensively.

In all bigger towns you will find pharmacies in Uganda. Anyhow, the range of medications available is limited. You should take a sufficient stock with you if you need regular medications.

Also important: Note down the active ingredients of your drugs, because the brand name might be different in Uganda. Unlike for example in Germany, you can get prescription-only drugs freely over the counter.

Medical cover is only in Kampala good. Beside the biggest hospital in Uganda, the Mulago Hospital, there are a few General Practitioners and small clinics. The further you get from the capital the thinner becames the medical cover. Rural hospitals and small medical centres are providing here medical help.

Important: You have to pay for all medical help and drugs in cash. If you are insured you get your expenses back.

Drinking water in Uganda

Logo of Rwenzori Beverage Co Ltd.The quality of the drinking water in Uganda is quite good, but of course it's not up to the highest German standart. Based on personal experience the all day use of the water for a shower or brushing teeth doesn't make any problems.

For drinking it is better to use water in bottles, which you can buy everywhere in the whole country. This water has guaranteed drinking water quality.

Very common is the water of the company "Rwenzori Beverage Co. Ltd". Even in shops in extremly remote areas you can buy their water. This company is the biggest supplier for soft drinks in whole East-Africa.


As a safari traveller you are often asked if snakes are not a problem. Opposed to widespread puplic opinion, snakes are not posing a risk. They are present, even a few venomous ones (black mamba, puff adder, spitting cobra), but most of them are not dangerous. Furthermore, all of them are very shy.
