The State Of Road Traffic In Kampala
Kampala is the starting point for all routes that connect to other regions of Uganda. All those who enter Uganda through Entebbe airport base from the capital and reach other areas by road transport.
If you want to dodge the capital, you can use air transport from the Kajjansi airstrip or enter the country from Rwanda via Katuna or Chanika border, Tanzania via Mutukura border, and DR Congo via the Mpondwe border.
Since most business activities take place in Kampala, it is not surprising that most of its routes are ever congested with cars.
Thousands of public taxis, buses, private cars and motorcycles enter the CBD daily from multiple areas. The huge traffic on Kampala routes is common in the morning and evening hours.
If you plan to use one or two of Kampala’s busiest roads on any day, make sure to enjoy your ride in the afternoon or lunchtime.
For those on a city tour, try to visit all the touristy places in time and end it before 4:00 PM. Later on, drive out of the city before the confusion starts.
