Moving to Uganda

Uganda has come a long way from what it once was after suffering from the economic downfall and civil war. It’s now viewed as a very stable, peaceful and aspiring country. Many who chose to relocate here, do so as assistants for NGO, diplomats or as journalists. As expected, the discovery of oil in Uganda has caused an increase in interest form expats and the population is experiencing steady growth. Most who relocate here find themselves in Kampala, the capital of Uganda. There is a considerably low cost of living in Uganda but some are still surprised that certain things cost more than expected in a country that is still undergoing development. For those expats looking to rent, it’s a bit more expensive to settle in one of the safer areas of the country.

The Transition

Relocating to Uganda isn’t for everyone. In fact, the ill-hearted would not do well because there will be a lack of certain casual familiarities. For those that can overlook this small factor, they are in for a wonderful experience that affords awesome landscapes, friendly residents and a rich cultural interaction that is enhanced with exotic wildlife. There are quite a few international schools in the country, all of which are based in the capital. Many expats choose to work arrangements for payment in with their employment contracts because fees are relatively expensive.

Inside Uganda

Uganda has steered clear of terrorist threats for the past 4 years. Most of the crimes that occur are of a small nature and include crimes such as credit card fraud, theft and burglary. It’s always safest to practice extreme caution in any area of the country and refrain from traveling along during night hours. The official spoken language in Uganda is English but there are a variety of local languages used throughout. People here are extremely welcoming and friendly to all. Some of the cities are shown below.


  • Kampala
  • Gulu
  • Lira
  • Mbarara
  • Jinja
