Uganda Visa For Uruguayan Citizens - Requirements & Fees

Try some of the local foods in Uganda

Uganda has plenty of food due to its favorable geography and naturally rich soil. Each province in the country has its unique tribal cuisine. One of the best activities in Uganda is to enjoy a variety of cuisine selections to sample based on the location visited. When travelers visit the central area, it is recommended to get a plate of matoke with ground nuts or pork.

To the east, the Bagisu will greet you with signature sweet potatoes and malewa, dried and cooked bamboo shoots. Millet bread is popular in the North-West of Uganda. Uganda is also known for its tasty rolex. It's not a Rolex watch brand but a signature food that includes chapatti, fried eggs, onions, tomatoes, and cabbage. Rolex is offered as local street food, but several fast-food businesses have begun to make them as well.
