What is your home city/country? How long is the trip to post from there, with what connections? How easy/difficult is it to travel to this city/country?

Northern VA. It took about 22 hours due to the layover in Amsterdam and 1-hr pit stop in Kigali. - Oct 2019


We call Northern Virginia our home. To get here, it takes about 18 hours flying time plus layovers. Highly recommend spending a night or two in Brussels or Amsterdam on the way to break up the trip. The flights from either land in Kigali for a 1 hour stopover and then head to Entebbe. Then you'll have 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hour drive to Kampala. - Mar 2019


The trip from home to post is long and difficult. Flight times aren't the best, and even the most direct connections still take two back-to-back 10+ hour flights. - Feb 2019


DC/Baltimore, USA. It's long, usually through Amsterdam or it's possible to take direct flight to Addis Ababa and then to Kampala. - Jan 2019


My home city is Los Angeles. It takes about 24 hours to get to Kampala from the USA. On the current contract carrier, flights from the USA arrive in Brussels, then depart Brussels for Kigali (8.5 hours), then on to Kampala (Entebbe airport) (1 hour). Including layovers it is about 24 hours total. I would recommend breaking the trip in Brussels (one or two nights stay) before going on to Entebbe, if you can. - Dec 2018


Washington, DC, and we usually take the direct to Amsterdam and then to Dulles from there. - Dec 2018


East coast of the USA. Not a terrible terrible trip, as there is a layover somewhere in Europe and then another flight to the east coast. - Oct 2018


West Coast, US. I think 25 hours is the shortest but it is usually longer. You usually fly through Brussels and then have one or two stops in the US. - Sep 2018


USA, North Dakota, 28 hours, stop in Minneapolis, Amsterdam, Kigali, and then arrive in Entebbe. - Sep 2018
