Uganda Distance Table
Discover Uganda: Driving Distances and Charts in a Country with an Average Road Network
Distances in Uganda are not vast, but they can still present challenges due to the nature of the road network and certain road structures. For instance, even a journey of 100 kilometres can take anywhere from a few hours to three-quarters of a day. It's important to consider these factors when planning your travel time.
To give you an idea of approximate driving times, the speed limits in Uganda are as follows: 100km/h on highways, 80 km/h on rural roads, and 50 km/h in urban areas. However, it's worth noting that maintaining these speed limits for an extended period can be quite difficult. To provide more realistic timings between destinations and towns, it's common to calculate using slightly lower speeds, such as 70km/h on highways and 50 km/h on rural roads.
While Uganda does boast a few new roads, built by the "Chinese," which are generally well-maintained and allow for higher speeds within the speed limits, there are still factors that can slow you down. People and animals on the roads and alongside them are a common sight, reminding you that you are indeed in Africa.
When planning your journey, it's always recommended to play around with Google Maps to get a better understanding of the routes and distances. Additionally, some areas in Uganda have been covered by Google Street View, providing a virtual glimpse of places like Lake Mburo National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Kibale National Park, Murchison Falls National Park, as well as Kampala and Entebbe. And keep in mind that Google continues to add more locations to Street View, so there's always something new to explore.
