We collect you from your hotel and go on to the Uganda Museum via National Theatre and golf course where you can buy some historical and more modern souvenirs.

We collect you from your hotel and take you to the Uganda Museum, viewing the National Theatre on route. At the museum you will have a guided tour of the exhibits of Ugandan culture, history and art. We then go on to Makerere University where you can view the sculptures of those considered to be the Great Men of Africa, including Nkrumah (often described as the Ghandi of Africa). Here you may take the opportunity if visiting the Zoological Museum and the Aquarium, before we move on to the famous Kasubi Tombs.

The Kasubi Tombs, or the Ssekabaka’s Tombs, on Kasubi Hill is where you’ll find the massive traditional reed and bark-cloth buildings of the Kabakas (Kings) of the Baganda people. These are the final resting places of the former Kings or Kabaka of the Buganda Empire, and are regarded as some of the most important historical sites in the region. We then travel to Namugongo Basilica where 26 Christian Martyrs were burnt alive for their faith.

Finally, we move on to Jinja source of the River Nile, where we have lunch before visiting Bujagali Falls and the powerful rapids.

On our return to Kampala, arriving late in the afternoon we will visit the buildings of the Buganda Kingdom and the Kabaka’s Trail where we have an opportunity to learn of the secret history of these ancient people.

The last stop of our busy day is at the enormous doomed Roman Catholic Rubaga Cathedral and the Namirembe Cathedral where the congregation are called to worship by magical drum beating.
