To plan Dar es Salaam vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Kampala, Uganda

Kampala enjoys the reputation of a modern city with a buzzing atmosphere--it also serves as a good base point for exploring the surrounding area.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Entebbe Botanic Gardens and Mayfair Casino & Club. Get outdoors at Katwe Tourism Information Centre and Kidepo Valley National Park. Step out of Kampala with an excursion to Uganda Wildlife Conservation Education Centre in Entebbe--about 1h 20 min away. Spend the 20th (Tue) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. And it doesn't end there: explore the activities along Lake Mutanda, contemplate the long history of Bugona Tree, take in the exciting artwork at Destreet Art Studio & Gallery, and don't miss a visit to Uganda Martyrs National Shrine.
