Uganda culture

enter image description here

As in many African countries, it’s customary for Ugandans to exchange friendly greetings before launching into the topic of conversation. To be polite, you should stick to this cultural practice, even if you’re simply asking a stranger on the street for directions.

Public displays of affection are considered impolite in Uganda: so restrict your affection towards your partner.

Ugandan women tend to dress conservatively, wearing long dresses and skirts that cover their knees.
