Things to See

Follow the links below or scroll further down the page for details on some of the many interesting tourist attractions in Uganda:

Uganda’s capital city, Kampala, is busy and lively. The National Museum, although rather badly maintained, is an interesting place. The architecture of the city is largely influenced by colonial styles, especially in the older parts of Kampala. An enjoyable day trip could be a visit to Kasubi where the tombs of the Bugunda Kings are located. The tomb site is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Centre.

Entebbe is spread around Lake Victoria. The international airport is in Entebbe and since November 2007, so is the State House or the Uganda Government House. Botanists and bird watchers are likely to find the old Botanical Gardens interesting, although the general visitor may not be very impressed by the gardens.

Jinja is where the Nile begins and for most Ugandans, where the popular Nile Beer originates! The city offers great opportunities for white water rafting, quad biking, bungee jumping and zip wiring across the River Nile. In short, Jinja is the adventure capital of East Africa.
