Moving to Kampala!!

Hi Everyone,

My name is Rebecca and I am English originally but have been living in Denmark the last 4 years.  I work in the Oil industry (I know, I sold my soul!) and my next post is Uganda!! Is very exciting but also a little scary :)

I will be based in Kampala but in the field a lot also, just looking to meet some people, of all nationalities (I have lived in Switzerland and Australia also) especially as I will be moving alone.

Sounds like a fabulous place to live, would love to find some new peoples and even someone to show me the best hangouts.

I hear Bubbles is a favourite, I adore cricket and rugby and most sports in fact, am only slightly competitive :)

Love to hear from you all, seems a great network, Thanks! Bex

Hi Rebecca,

Welcome to!

Thank you for this introduction.

All the best,

hi Bex you welcome to Uganda, you can hit me up when you are around

Hi Bex,

How are you getting on?!

I have also just moved here  - a few weeks ago - and am keen to meet people to socialise and drink wine with ;-). Would be great to hear from you.


Hi Guys,

Thank you for your replies! My wonderful company decided (on the eve of my departure) that in fact I had to go offshore to do one last job.  And consequently I am still in Denmark!

However I am expecting (still vague after last time) that I will be flying down to Kampala this thursday.

I will be working in the field quite often but am very keen to get to know the expat community in Kampala when I am around!

Think at this stage I will be living in the Mbuya area, as this is where our base is.

Will be in touch when I arrive! :)
