Travelers should carry their own drugs and preventive medicines. Anti-malarial tablets are highly recommended throughout the Country. Chloroquine does NOT protect against malaria in Uganda. It is also recommended that you bring medicine for diarrhea and also carry sun block and sun glasses for protection from harmful sun rays and anti bacterial hand wash / wipes. Please purchase travel insurance before you begin your trip, including medical evacuation in case of an emergency. Avoid swimming in Uganda’s lakes as they carry a high risk of bilharzia.
