Kampala and Jinja updates

I’m writing this from our Entebbe-Kampala-Jinja-Lake Mburo trip and using the latest edition 8 Bradt I want to point out some additional info as well as some errata.


Page 146, Kampala eat and drink: Most of the links on that page point to the map on page 104. This should read “page 131”
page 134, website is: http://www.pacifichotel.com

Additional info:

Jinja: there ist a new bar called “Cozy Bar” next to the “Why not” at Iganga Street. We found that place very inviting, cozy atmosphere, friendly service and inexpensive (beers at 4.000 UGX). At night they start a barbecue offering marinated goats meat, delicious! They don´t concentrate merely on tourists, but have many relaxed locals visiting. There is also a pool table in one corner of the room.

Kampala: we stayed at the Pacific hotel. Unfortunately the mosque right next door has two huge loudspeakers on the roof… Also, the tiny William Street is close to the main market, which means that the road is completely blocked by trucks waiting to load/offlaod in the morning. Service was poor there and the mattress in our spacious room was as hard as a brick.

Be very careful in central Kampala. We had two attempts of pickpocketing within 5 minutes.

Enjoy Uganda!
