It is home to the parliament of Uganda, the president’s house, businesses, and most commercial buildings. If you are looking out for Uganda’s top deluxe hotels you all find it here.
Besides that, this city is as well dotted by multiple tourist spots that are ideal for those who visit the country majorly for tourism purposes. One of the reasons for a trip to Uganda is Kampala city.
This day trip takes you to most draws that surround the area such as the national museum, Bahai temple, Buganda kingdom Royal Palace, Gadhafi mosque, Martyr’s shrines Namugongo, local markets, and more.
If you are not certain of how to delve into the city’s charms, here we list you the 4 great ways to travel around Kampala on your own or by a local operator.
For those who are after exploring what Kampala has to offer, this is the number one option you should choose. Once you hire a special taxi for a day just know that it will be available to transport you around from 7:00 am to 6:00 am.
So everything you need to do must be covered in that time frame. Private taxis are available not only for city tour but also for traveling you from one location to another within Kampala or out. If you fancy privacy, don’t delay to book for a cab.
Public taxis transfer locals from CBD to other areas that girdle the city or from other areas to the city for work and other issues. It is cheap but great for locals and not recommended for foreign visitors and those who need privacy.
Unless you need to immerse yourself in the local way of getting around Kampala, then you can opt for this.
This is an option where you get from one point to another by motorcycle. It is cost-friendly and idyllic for those who are after time. I recommend this especially when most routes out of the city are congested by traffic.
You can hoop on a Boda Boda and get to your next destination. For visitors to the country take care when using this mode of transportation. I don’t recommend using it at night.
Do you need deeper insight into Kampala? Walking around is the best way to go. This alternative will lead you to off the beaten path spots you can’t get to when using a car.
It is more perfect for short-distance treks and it will award with endless views of the city’s splendor. Make sure to reach the markets like Owino for local life encounters. Taste Uganda’s delicious cuisine.
