Terms and conditions

Diary of a Muzungu is a personal travel blog.

It is independently owned and the opinions expressed here are my own, unless otherwise stated.

I Love UG. I Love Uganda

I Love UG. I Love Uganda!

This blog runs almost entirely on love. Love for Uganda, love for conservation, love for travel, love for writing and a love (or perhaps compulsion) for late nights and sweating over the laptop when most normal people are putting their feet up.


The Muzungu’s editorial policy

All of my content is original, personal and well researched, with links to external web sites as appropriate.

You will find the guidelines for Guest Posts and Sponsored Posts here.


The Muzungu’s review policy

I am a blogger, travel writer, social media influencer and Chartered Institute of Marketing Manager.

Diary of a Muzungu focuses on Uganda and East Africa but I am interested in travelling the whole African continent. If you would like me to participate in a press trip, tourist activity, lodge review or fam trip, please contact the Muzungu.

I am also interested in reviewing travel-related products, books and films. I cannot guarantee that I will review every product, only that I will endeavour to post something positive. I will not lie. If you send me a product or invite me on a trip, the understanding is that if I don’t like it, I won’t write about it. If I write about it, I like it.

I’m not interested in link exchanges, unless your site is of obvious relevance to my readers, in which case, I may charge you.


DISCLOSURE: Sponsorship and advertising

NetFlix HD fans and gamers will love Smile 4G’s Premium Unlimited package.

I earn a few cents or pennies when you purchase from the Diary of a Muzungu online shop. This costs you nothing extra, yet makes me love you even more. Is that possible?

The Muzungu’s comments policy

Diary of a Muzungu is a personal blog. In my personal little kingdom, I write the rules.

Your opinions and your experience may be vastly different to mine. I respect your views, so please respect mine.

All comments are moderated – and acknowledged. Let’s keep comments positive and have a personal and meaningful conversation.

I love to read your comments but if I find them wildly off-topic, too self-promotional or even offensive, I reserve the right to edit, delete, and block any and all inappropriate or unnecessary comments blog as I see fit.
