 Unofficial Kampala Entebbe Airport Taxi Service or Hire Points

 

Think twice before you take a "Boda Boda", a frightening sort of motorcycle taxi. While they may not be available for hire at the airport, Boda Bodas are common in Kampala (you will be approached), 

Boda Boda drivers will do whatever it takes to get you to your destination quickly, darting in front of traffic and though crowds of pedestrians. Women are expected to ride side saddle (extremely dangerous), or be subjected to scorn for riding "like a man". Most hospital visits and traffic fatalities in Kampala are from Boda Boda accidents.


 
IHateTaxis.com does not recommend the unofficial Kampala Entebbe Airport taxi service.
