We will be travelling from Entebbe airport to Kabale to Lake Bunyonyi by public bus. Is it safe and relatively straight forward to do this?
I would suggest you hire a taxi or 4x4 because the roads are un predictable some times.
From Kampala to Kabale the road is straight forward and you can use public means but from Kabale to Lake Bunyonyi , you must either take a Taxi which may drop you at the shores from where you may be required to take a boat depending on where you will stay.
However, I wouldn't recommend a tourist to travel by public transport on a long Journey like Kampala - Kabale because they are some times the pick pocketers' targets. More so , you may not have security should you loose any of your important items because being public means , it is not easy to track them.
Thanks so much for that. L
Thanks so much for that will check out the Post bus. Thank you.
Is it possible to get a taxi from entenbbe to kabale? Do you know how much this would cost? Thanks.
It is possible but horrendously expensive. You are looking at 450km and about 7 hours driving.
Private hire may be cheaper and work out at maybe US$400.
the road bewtween Entebbe and Kabale is quite good apart from one 50km stretch between Mbarara and Ntungamo plus another shorter bit just before Kabale town. That last bit may well be fixed before you get there depending on the time of your trip.
Buses operating are Bismark, Link and another who's name escapes me at the moment. They get there most days so must be relatively safe. They are cheap.
Wow, yes that is expensive, thanks very much for the info, that's great. We're going in July so am reassured that the roads aren't too bad. Thanks again
The bus is a fairly hectic option - there is always a long wait in kampala bus stop and they travel VERY fast. Saying that Ive never been in an accident. I would now always get my very friend Beedah to pick me up - he s available to special hire and is completely honest .You can contact him on TEL: +256771826804/+256772821277/+256757112033.
Hope that helps.
