necessity to every visitor. There is no way one can enjoy a Uganda safari in the wild without the right shoes.

shoes which might be okay for a given activity but totally incompatible
for another one.

If your safari in Uganda
involves walking safaris, gorilla tracking or chimpanzee tracking, you
are advised to get a pair of light hiking boots that can comfortably
support your ankles while hiking. Sturdy walking shoes also work for
some people on gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda, but if you are walking across an uneven terrain, you will love the ankle support that the light-weight hiking boots give.

hikes in the Rwenzori mountain foothills, Mgahinga gorilla national park
and Mountain Elgon national park.
All the safari shoes you pack for your Uganda safari
should be well worn such that you won’t be uncomfortable in the
unbroken stiff shoes. Buy these shoes so early such that you can wear
them and get used to them before your trip.
White colored shoes are not practical on African safaris,
unless you are parking a pair of nice shoes for a dinner you might have
in a hotel in the city. White shoes or sneakers get dirty quickly with
the African dust and you will spend most time trying to clean them. So
the best thing to do is just keep them at home.
Because safaris in Uganda,
is a basically all about the African wildlife, you need a sturdy shoe
for whatever activity you take part in. Uncomfortable shoes will ruin
the exciting adventure and hiking boots protect your feet, ankles and
give you a steady footing even on slippery grounds.

you do not have any surprises of un-fitting boots when you get to
Uganda and embark on your safari activities.
