Uganda 2023 (Project Africa)

The provisional announcement for a return to Uganda in 2023 was made before the outbreak of the Omicron variant of Covid-19. Whilst the situation with the new variant seems to be improving in the UK, largely due to the vaccination programme, the situation in Uganda remains uncertain at this point in time. The decision has therefore been taken to postpone the main Uganda visit until 2024. Further announcements will be made on the Project Africa / Uganda page. More . . .
