Prepare for high levels of air population in Kampala

  • Kampala has the second-worst air quality amongst African cities, and its air quality had been getting worse due to the city's ever-growing population and the types of fuel used.
  • Though I didn't experience any form of health problem due to air pollution in Kampala, WHO recommends that you do not spend more than 90 minutes being continuously exposed to the fumes in the streets of Kampala (especially from morning around to middle)

Further precautions:

  • Avoid exercising outdoors in Kampala- it increases exposure time.
  • Carry an air mask( never saw anyone with these but just carry one if you're sensitive.)
