Kampala is Uganda's national and commercial capital bordering Lake Victoria, Africa's largest lake. Hills covered with red-tile villas and trees surround an urban centre of contemporary skyscrapers.
In this downtown area, the Uganda Museum explores the country's tribal heritage through an extensive collection of art-facts. On nearby Mengo Hill is Lubiri Palace, the former seat of the Buganda Kingdom.
Following breakfast, travel from Entebbe to the nearby city of “Crazy Kampala”. The tour may include the following sites (dependant on time of day and traffic):
Kabaka’s Lake and Mengo Palace which is Buganda Kingdom’s main administrative palace.
Uganda’s famous Makerere University which is one of the prestigious African Universities that has groomed several African presidents.
The Uganda Museum where a lot of Uganda’s historical artifacts are displayed.
Namugongo Uganda Martyr’s Shrine where over 22 young men lost their lives after denouncing the autonomy of the reigning Kabaka Mwanga (King).
Kampala’s Baha’i Temple which is the only one of its kind in the entire Africa.
Namirembe cathedral which is the main Anglican cathedral in Uganda set up in the old missionary days.
The Roman Catholics’ Rubaga Cathedral which was also first constructed in the missionary era.
Owino market which is the main down-town market for selling second hand commodities.
While travelling from one place to another, you will experience the unmatched chaos and vibrancy of this bustling city. Time permitting, a visit to the local craft market can also be arranged.Book Now
