UGANDA TOURIST SIM CARD AND PREPAID SIM CARD IN UGANDA

UGANDA PREPAID SIM CARD BACKGROUND

First thing we have to say about Uganda prepaid sim card and data connection in Uganda is fine in the big cities. There are 5 phone operators in Uganda: MTN Uganda, Airtel Uganda, UT Mobile, Africell and Smart. Social media apps are blocked and you have to pay extra 200 UGX per day for using them.

Obviously the best thing you can do to connect online is getting a prepaid sim card in Uganda. It will be efficient and it will allow you to connect anytime.

We recommend you to get your Uganda tourist sim card outside the airport because prices and packages are better in the official stores. Anyway data is affordable in Uganda but the connection isn’t the best.

BEST TIME TO VISIT UGANDA

In Uganda summer months from December to February is so hot the weather and the high season. During the winter months from June to August the temperature is cold and it’s the low season.

We believe the best time to visit Uganda is during the spring months from September to November when the days are fresh and sunny. Fall season from March to May can be a great time for visiting Uganda.
