How much cash can be taken from UK to Uganda?

I am travelling to Uganda for a few weeks and wish to take with me a few thousand pounds in sterling cash because the exchange rate is better in Uganda. What are the rules about this?

Currency Import regulations:

Foreign currencies: There is no limit on the amount of foreign currency a traveler can bring into Uganda, provided he/she declares the currency upon arrival.

Domestic currencies: The GOU prohibits travelers from importing Ugandan shillings upon arrival.

Currency Export regulations:

Foreign currencies: Travelers are free to export foreign currency up to the amount imported and declared on arrival.

Domestic currencies: The GOU prohibits travelers from exporting Ugandan shillings upon departure.
