About Kampala

Kampala is a vibrant city where you can experience the rich history, culture and cuisine of Uganda. It’s set on the shores of Lake Victoria and combines unique historical attractions with a flourishing contemporary arts scene. Visit UNESCO-listed tombs, enjoy a scenic boat cruise and discover the city’s legendary nightlife.

Things to do in Kampala

Step inside the Old Kampala National Mosque, an enormous building crowned by a gleaming copper dome. It’s one of the largest mosques in Africa and features an impressive main hall decorated with woven carpets, sparkling chandeliers and stained-glass windows. Climb the minaret for panoramic views over the city.

Uncover the city’s ancient past at the Kasubi Tombs, where four Bugandan kings are buried. The complex is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers a fascinating glimpse of the Buganda kingdom. Thatch-roof houses surround the main tomb and showcase traditional Bugandan building techniques.

As the sun sets, get ready to embrace Kampala's vibrant nightlife. From lively Irish pubs to live music venues, you’ll find plenty of action along Acacia Avenue. Sip cocktails at poolside bars and dance the night away to DJ sets.

Kampala's diverse culinary scene draws inspiration from Ugandan, Indian, Arab, Asian and English cuisine. Try local specialties like “luwombo” meat stew steamed in green banana leaves and “rolex” vegetable omelette wrapped in chapati. Finish with a sweet cup of “chai masala” tea. If you’re feeling adventurous, try street food favourites like “nsenene” fried grasshoppers and “nswaa” crispy white ants.
