How much money do you need to live like a king in Uganda by Kenyans247(1): Thu Jan 2020 09:39am
There are so many angles to the “live like a King” phrase so I'll just give you my opinion as a local speaking to a foreigner.

Uganda is a beautiful and abundant country but unfortunately very poor and the Uganda Shilling is very weak against the dollar ($1=UGX 3740 as of today). So it doesn't take much to live like a king here. You just need to at least be earning in a foreign currency and be able to afford the basic amenities.

Let's try to get down to the figures. Let's say, for argument’s sake that you'll be bringing in maybe about $2,000 a month, that's about UGX 7,400,000. By that standard, you're literally a king. And here's why:

HOUSING: Assuming you already have your household stuff, you can rent off a decent place to live for around UGX1,000,000 or slightly more (less than $300) with water and electricity inclusive. For example look at this house; beautiful compound, it’s 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms (unfurnished), located in Najjera a posh suburb near the capital but goes for UGX 1,500,000 a month (about $400), and this is a negotiable fee!

FEEDING: Assuming you'll want to eat at a good hotel, Café, or restaurant and not cook for yourself, you can do 3 meals a day at UGX 70,000 which is about $20 a day or $600 a month. There’s this very good cafe you can check out, very cheap meals for example the one below costs about $8.

But then if your idea of “eating like a king” is just having a full belly, this figure can go down even incredibly lower since food in the less fancy places is even much cheaper. To put it into comparison, for just $4 more than what you paid for the breakfast above, you get this meal below;

GETTING AROUND: Kings don't drive, they take Ubers lol. That's also quite cheap. Trips cost UGX 700 per Km and most trips in and around Kampala won't cost more than $5. But the traffic sometimes gets crazy and the king may need to hop onto our magical boda-boda; motorbike ‘taxis’ that cost less than $2 for most trips around the capital, Kampala. They are quick, safe and most importantly cheap.

LEISURE AND FUN: Kampala has a vibrant nightlife, with so many bars, clubs, lounges, etc. most have free entrance and even if you paid, it's not everyday. The beer is in huge supply and incredibly cheap. Out of the capital, there's also lots of sightseeing you can do.
