In Uganda,it is uncultured to wear to wear clothes that are not neatly pressed,clean and in need of mending.In Kampala,its a common practice to be smart,even though one wears a leisure clothes.Culturally,women are not expected to wear mini-skirts,tight shorts,in actuality men and women are more respected not wearing shorts.
While on a cultural Safari,it is ideal to avoid wearing shorts for better protection from from insects.Modesty,this applies to both equally to men and women.While in Kampala,you will see many Ugandan men in suits.However,you certainly do not have to wear a suit but just keep clean,neat and wear pressing clothes.
Many Ugandan women both in towns and villages are fond of wearing traditional dress called Busuuti also known as "Gomesi" while men wear "Kanzu".Both Kanzu and Busuti are won at special events including introductions and weddings.
Tourists in Uganda should take caution of the dressing discipline that is required of them.In Uganda,once a visitor dresses improperly,he/she is looked at as an irresponsible person and less attention is given.But there are some occassions where one an wear casually like during weekend,in the club,on a game drive,in a bar,in the evening and other occasions.
