1 Day

This Kampala City tour takes you on a day’s exploration of Kampala City’s culture, history, and popular spots in a way that will make you feel like a local.

Kampala is Uganda’s biggest city with the biggest urban population that comes for work and other opportunities from all parts of the country. Culturally, Kampala is the boiling pot of all Ugandan cultures as well as a modern and international lifestyle.

On this day tour, you will explore Kampala’s history. You will see many places that hold great significance to Ugandans from a historical, cultural heritage, and spiritual perspective.

Kampala City Tour

As you move from place to place, you will be able to get a feel of the various parts of Kampala, as well as the frustrating traffic jam and congestion – which is an experience impossible to describe but worthy of retelling.

While it is true that you can’t really experience Kampala in one day, your tour will give you a great insight into how the various aspects of Kampala combine to make something wonderful.

Since this is a day trip, it can always be added to a longer safari holiday if you would like to spend more time and explore other areas of Uganda for Wildlife, gorillas, chimps, and culture.

As with all our safari packages, we can customise the tour program to fit your personal preferences. Just reach ut to us and we’ll be eager to help you.
