All in Africa Safaris brings you a 1 Day Kampala City tour. Kampala is a very busy city, the heart of the Buganda Tribe, and the capital of Uganda.
The city is located an hour from Entebbe, where the International Airport for Uganda is located, as well as the official seat of the government, the State House. Kampala is the location of the Ugandan Parliament, foreign Embassies, and the offices of the various Ugandan government departments. Kampala is not an easy place to get around, as the roads are usually full of traffic, especially the main entry roads to the city. The traffic is notorious, and for people that travel within the city limits, the favorite choice of transport is the Boda Boda….a 100 cc motorbike taxi; there are tens of thousands of them moving like mice on all the city roads.
