There is a lot of road work going on. The main roads in the South are in a pretty good condition but in the North there is almost no tarmac but they are working on it
We had mostly good weather but it was raining a lot in the North, therefore we stayed more in the South.
Here some apps and webpages we think are usefull for travelling overland to this country
Websites: Overlander Africa (Facebook Groupe)
Visa: As Swiss passport holders we got the East Africa Visa which is valid 90 days for Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya
Carnet de Passage: As we travel with the CdP we used it but you can also get a temporary import permit (TIP) at the border.
Insurance: COMESA insurance which we already got for all the countries in Zambia (cost us 80 USD per bike for one year and 9 countries)
Uganda is less populated than Rwanda but more dirty and kids still ask for money everywhere. The adults are mostly very friendly and interested in what we were doing.
Here some very country specific information:

It does not matter if you travel alone or in a group, a SENA communication system is always a great thing to have!
A drone is a great way of filming your trip
