Kampala

Kampala awaits you on the northern shore of sprawling Lake Victoria. A former capital of the Buganda Kingdom, bursting with noise and energy, beguiling and verdant, the city is known for its quality of life – one of the best in East Africa. As soon as you set foot in Kampala, order a rolex (the country’s iconic omelet sandwich), hop on a boda-boda (motorcycle taxi) and head to Owino Market, the largest of its kind in Uganda. Make time to visit the Kasubi Royal Tombs (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Namirembe Cathedral, the Grand Mosque of Kampala or the Baha’i Temple. Don’t miss Nommo Gallery, which showcases Ugandan art and crafts. After a busy day, chill out in a kafunda (small roadside bar) and taste a waragi (local gin). Anyone who loves nightlife will find themselves in the lively Kabalagala district until the wee hours of the morning!
