    dear swapna,
    sorry for late reply.
    i donot know about whole Uganda but about kampala i can tell u.its a great place.u cannot compare it to London but climatically its much better than london.but if ur friend is from India he\she will find it at par with good Indian city.
    security is good,Lots of Asians ,Eurepeons & Chinese r there......
    all Indian things r readily available......but little costly.........
    maids,drivers easily available........
    love

    HI Pragati,

    i am Alpa from your neighbouring country - Nairobi - Kenya. Kampala is much nicer than Nairobi and is really coming up well.

    hope you are enjoying Kampala

    hi swapna,
    1-2 br flat will cost anywhere between $300-$800.Depends upon the locality choosen.kampala is relatively safe, so its not necessary to choose in all indian locality.
    one person can easily live on $300-$500 plus the rent .
    we have been here for 6 mths only so its a rough guess.(ours is family of 4 with school going kid & a baby)
