Covid 19 Guidelines With Insight Safari Holidays
Uganda’s latest news about COVID-19 Restrictions
NOT AFFECT TRAVEL
On Sunday June 6 the President of Uganda Yoweri Museveni addressed the nation with new restrictions and precautionary measures aiming at curbing a recent rise in COVID-19 cases in Uganda for the next 42 days.
These measures do not impact tourism in any way. While restrictions for inter-district travel were implemented, tourism and tourist vehicles are exempt from these restrictions and therefore Insight safari Holidays can operate our vehicles with guests as normal. In addition, Aerolink and air charters are flying as scheduled with no restrictions. Hotels and lodges are operating under the strict, previously instated COVID-19 SOPs. Our safari guides are trained to follow all protocols (and are vaccinated!)
The rise in COVID-19 cases is mostly concentrated in urban areas such as Kampala and other larger cities and towns where social distancing is very hard. Tourist areas are well away from these urban centers. The tourism sector is taking all SOPs very seriously.
All visitors arriving in the country and they are not fully vaccinated are to undergo a mandatory Covid 19 on arrival at the airport. Cost for the test is $65 expecting results within 4 hours. For those who are fully vaccinated will only present a positive COVID-19 molecular test taken between 1 and 120 days prior to departure.
As always, you can find our latest updates on COVID-19 SOPs as well as testing requirements for entry/exit to Uganda on our website here or by contacting office on +256774382674 .
