Uganda time zone:

Uganda has two time zones. During the dry seasons, Uganda operated on East African Time (UTC+3), the same as Central Africa Time. As of October 1, 2007, Uganda started to observe Daylight Saving Time/Summer Time from November 1 to February 28 every year and only operates on East Africa Standard Time UTC+3:00 all year round.

This means that in Summer, the local time is one hour ahead of Kenya and Tanzania, at least 15 minutes ahead of Rwanda and Burundi, depending on where you are going.

In Kampala’s capital city, it was not advisable to schedule a meeting between government officials before 10 am as they would arrive late by 30 minutes. For instance, the drive from Entebbe airport would take at least 30 minutes longer than the same distance in Kenya.

This is because there was no time difference during the dry seasons. Most Ugandan business people operated during business hours that had to be synchronized with their Kenyan and Rwandan counterparts.

There were situations of an early morning local meeting between government officials in Entebbe starting late by 30 minutes due to a traffic jam on the road from Nairobi. This meant that they did not beat the clock and would get into trouble by arriving late for meetings. The only way to compare time zones was through internet tools which make it easy to reach local times anywhere in Uganda with other countries on earth.
