Update as reported by ATTA Member Jane Behrend, Director of International Sales for Volcanoes Safaris North America:
“There have been media reports relating to explosions at public places in Kampala, the capital of Uganda on Sunday 11 July, where a number of people are reported to have died.
The government is investigating this incident and will release further information as and when a clearer picture emerges. Preliminary indications are that this was a one-off terrorist incident organized by a militia group from a neighbouring country. After this sad incident, life in Kampala has returned to normal and is proceeding as usual. Travel to and from the city continues normally. All areas of the country remain stable and clients are proceeding with safaris as planned. Most Volcanoes Safaris clients do not generally visit Kampala on their way to tourist attractions. There is no cause for alarm. The government has reinforced security and reassured everyone that measures are in place to safeguard public safety.
Volcanoes Safaris is monitoring the situation and will release updates as required.”
