The description of the App on the Apple Store reads:

“Let MTN make your visit to Uganda a memorable experience. Our Uganda Guide app guides you right from the start when you arrive at Entebbe International Airport. It recommends accommodation options in Kampala and beyond, along with recommendations for restaurants and bars; adventure activities; museums, monuments and other tourist attractions; modes of transport; and the best places to shop.

The app also provides a useful list of everyday phrases translated from English into Swahili and Luganda, two commonly spoken languages in Uganda. Additionally, you’ll find information to help you switch your cellphone onto the MTN network in Uganda and make use of services such as roaming and pay-as-you-go data and voice bundles. In case of emergency, you’ll find details of local police, hospitals and more, as well as a list of embassies, consulates, banks and travel agencies.

The MTN Uganda Guide is the only app you’ll need to explore this amazing country.”

The App is currently available on the Google Play Store and Apple Store.
