Cost of Living

Living in Uganda

Uganda is a landlocked nation located in East Africa. The country has largely recovered from civil war in the 1980s to become a relatively peaceful and stable country; however it remains a developing country that lacks in infrastructure and certain amenities that Westerners take for granted. However, the number of expats is increasing, particularly within the capital, Kampala. Ugandan people are friendly and welcoming to foreigners and English is widely spoken so it isn't too hard to settle in. Uganda has a tropical climate with year-round warm temperatures and two dry seasons.
