New Uganda COVID-19 Restrictions DO NOT AFFECT TOURISM

07 June 2021

Last night (Jun 6), President Museveni announced new restrictions and precautionary measures intended to curb a recent rise in COVID-19 cases in Uganda for the next 42 days.

However, these measures do not impact tourism in any way. Tourism and tourism vehicles are exempt from all of the inter-district travel restrictions and those only apply to public transportation and personal/private vehicles, not tourism vehicles.

CAS will operate all safaris as planned. 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 CAS guides are trained to follow all protocols (and are fully vaccinated!) and will work to ensure all properties are doing the same.

Hilda and the CAS team on the ground in Entebbe are carefully monitoring the situation and we will provide further updates as we have them. We do not, however, anticipate further changes that will affect tourism.  For more information, please contact Lyndsay at or Hilda at
