My trip to Uganda: “On the road”- Part One- April/14 #Uganda #Africa #Travel #Photography

Last Monday I came back from a short spell in Uganda, my birthplace, my home and my heart.

The older I get the more frequently I’ve been going back, and with every visit is more precious than the last. With the majority of my family based in Kampala (the capital), and my ancestral village in Mbarara (South West). Most of my images are snaps between the two.

Having recently having a feature spread in Impact Magazine on travelling (especially commuting) across Africa, with particular reference to Uganda (https://www.mrs.org.uk/mymrs). it was great to see some improvements on the roads since I last visited in January 2013. Although the roads and overall infrastructure still remain by further than where it should be (due to the lack of Government intervention), I still say in the most optimistic tone possible, that some progress is better than no progress.

The gallery below is the first part on my One the Road blog posts, featuring self-captured scenic photography from my road trips around the country.

I hope you enjoy.

Three things to consider when being on the road in Uganda:

1) Drivers are very aggressive and keep you on the edge of your seat. Keep calm and use the loo before you leave.

2) Eat a Rolex. A rolex is an filled burrito looking snack, usually filled with egg. Obviously tastier than the timepiece.

3) The first price (for anything) is never the last price.

  1. Brilliant! I have been working (volunteer in free time) with a charity for a number of years and we fund raise for community lead projects. The projects are based in Ruhanga, also SW Uganda. I understand the area is breathtakingly beautiful!
