Kampala

4
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. You'll find plenty of things to do in Kampala itself, whether touring the city's museums, heritage centers, and galleries, browsing the stalls of the chaotic markets, or wandering the leafy streets of the affluent Nakasero Hill district, home to embassies and 5-star hotels. The city surroundings provide an abundance of activities, from rafting on the Nile, to various safaris and excursions to nearby national parks. Kampala is in Central Region. Use our Uganda trip site to arrange the details of your trip to Kampala and other destinations.
