Product Description

Review

'Formidable in-depth information on native mammals and birds.' The Times 'Whatever corner of Uganda your next trip takes you to, this new guide will provide perfect company.' Travel Africa 'Bradt's Uganda guidebook has the most up-to-date information on trekking companies and basic travel resources, as well as some trekking route information.' Travel Africa 'If seeing gorillas in the mist appeals, this is the book for you. Primarily concerned with wildlife viewing opportunities, it gives formidable in-depth information on native mammals and birds.' The Times 'We had a successful filming trip, and the guide was great. I found it full of useful information, it was relevant, up to date and comprehensive. A good reference for anyone visiting Uganda with loads of interesting background information and tips.' Emma Richards, Smith & Watson Productions, UK 'Bradt's Uganda by Philip Briggs is a comprehensive guide to Uganda, complete with excellent background reading on both the mountain gorillas and the Batwa. Travel Africa "Having just got back from our first visit to Uganda for 15 years, I would like to thank you for your brilliant revision of the Bradt Guide. We have found the new edition a mine of information and interest all written with a delightful lightness of touch and real insight into each area." John Haden

I went to Uganda October/November 2003 and found this guide to be completely up to date. I was armed with both the Bradt Guide and Lonely Planet East Africa Guide and there is really no comparison - the Bradt edition is a real must for anyone going to Uganda - be it for a back packer or safari traveller. The information about wildlife, travel, roads and particularly accommodation, be it camp sites or luxury lodges is spot on and completely accurate. The Lonely Planet Guide is too sparse in the particular information about Uganda as it covers other countries in East Africa, whilst the Bradt Guide is Uganda specific. There is no real alternative guide available for anyone travelling to this wonderful country - buy it!!

Another excellent Bradt guide to Uganda. I live in Uganda, working mostly with the national parks, and can vouch that the travel information is very accurate and very up to date. This book has new stuff for everyone, residents and tourists alike. It is the one I send my visitors up country with. Briggs has found a host of places I never knew existed and his 'grey boxes' scattered throughout the book describe a wide variety of fascinating background info which is new to me. Buy it and come and visit Uganda!

The Bradt Guide to Uganda is a mine of useful and interesting information about the country. I used it throughout my recent trip to Uganda. Other guides may include more photographs, but Bradt is the best for detail, accuracy and interest. The publisher also operates a free email update service.

If you are interested in visiting Uganda, this is THE guide; up-to-date, accurate and very easy to read. It is more than a guide book in that it can be browsed for pleasure in its own right. I like to think that I know the country reasonably well, but this book is full of fascinating information and each edition that comes out tells you something new.

basically, this is the best travel guide book that I've ever had the pleasure of using.
comprehensive information on where to stay, and to eat, which is ideal for independent travellers.
the advice about driving is invaluable, if you're lucky enough to hire a car, this book tells you everything you need to know about the state of the roads, and the maps are clear enough for you to drive around the country with it alone. Lonely planet in comparison is less than 2/3 the size, with consequently less information
you'll regret it if you take any other guide book

It's the one to take with to Uganda but falls down heavily in the Sesse islands
where it's basically useless. For such an important archipelago the lack of coverage
is unforgivable.

As always the accommodation options aren't always the one someone who knows the places he visists
will want to take. My hotel in Kampala is not mentioned, nor in a number of other places I visit.

But having said that at times i've been stuck and the recommendations (not always the case with the competition) have been reliable.

From the other reviews i see i am not the only one who found the Bradt guide unbelievably helpful and far better than the lonely planet version. The key is in the details and that is this guide all over.
Like many African countries people know very little about Uganda, but when you read a book such as this put together by genuine experts you realise just quite what is there. Thanks Bradt for turning my 'great' trip into quite frankly an eye-opening trip of a lifetime.

Its actually pretty difficult to find a Guide for Uganda, and I hated to be parted from my usual Lonely Planet Guides, but this book has been great, I love the History info at the beginning, and although I tend not to use the books when I'm actually in a place, preferring to read up before, I found myself consulting this book throughout my trip. It was great.
