TOUR ITINERARY

Tour Description

Start/End: Kampala Duration: 1 Day Activity: City tour, shopping Destinations: Kampala Exploring Uganda’s capital city – Kampala through culture, religion, people, food, buildings and a lot more highlights.

Kampala is Uganda’s capital city with an estimated population of over 2.5 million people located in south central part close to the shores of Lake Victoria. The city was originally built on 7 hills which include Mengo, Makerere, Namirembe, Rubaga, Kololo & Mbuya but now has grown and more places have come up and city has extended into other parts. This City Tour starts with a visit to the Uganda Martyrs shrine in Namugongo, a place where 14 of 22 Christian martyrs were burnt alive by King Mwanga in 1886. Also every year on 3rd June, tens of thousands of people from all over the world flock this place in remembrance of the martyrs. Also visit the Baha’i’ temple on Kikaya hill – the only Baha’i’ house of worship in Africa and the Uganda Museum which displays and exhibits ethnological, natural-historical & traditional life collections of Uganda’s cultural heritage. There after you will drive to Kasubi hill where you find one of the UNESCO world heritage site – Kasubi tombs. This is an active religious place in the Buganda kingdom and acts as the burial ground for the previous four Kabaka’s. From Kasubi you head to Kabaka’s palace in Mengo which is the main palace for the Buganda Kingdom. Other places you will visit include Rubaga cathedral on Rubaga hill, Gaddafi mosque (Uganda national mosque), Owino market, Independence monument and many others. You will also be able to do some shopping at the crafts center and markets. However it’s impossible to see all these places in 1 day due to the distance and traffic jam, but your tour guide will advise on which places to see first or you can choose.
