Ugandese proudly bring foreign guests to this spectacle. Your increasing desire to start dancing yourself will be rewarded at the end. Do not expect culinary miracles though ;-)

What an experience... what show... I recommend that all who visit Kampala, make an effort to visit Ndere Centre to see the awesome show. Stephen Ndere is a born entertainer, a comedian and has a show that includes stunning music, especially drummers and a variety of music and dance. The resulting laughter is testimony to the wonderful relationship Stephen has... More

I went there sometime back like at the beginning of the year. It is a lovely cultural experience. All our cultures blended into one with music and dance from all the regions of Uganda. Beautiful and educational at the same time. It was time well spent. It was also very relaxing and the presenter added a lot of humor too... More

I enjoyed it immensely and every time I get especially first time visitors to the country, they sure have to make a stop at the centre, great place and definitely worth a visit... More

I visited Ndere Troupe Center in April this year. The center has a true display of the unique Ugandan heritage. The leafy environment on the compound of the center is a true demonstration of the adage, "Uganda, gifted by nature". The entertainers were so lively and have a mastery of their art. The satirical MC made us laugh the whole... More

African dances usually tell a story, its not about the dance only because there's always more to it. These dances are breathtaking, you don't want to leave before the show ends. Its worth your time and money. I like the part where the girls carry pots on their heads and dance at the same time, i cant seem to get... More

Great show, very good dancers and varied performance. Dances from all over Uganda and East African countries. The Burundi drums were AMAZING. Not good for food if vegetarian, I only ate rice as vegetables weren't cooked nicely. however I did enjoy the night.

Great dance show, that is a must, and really worth seeing. The only and really serious disadvantage is the director who was in between, or rather dances were in between his talk. Which was far too long, boring, and the level of jokes - very basic. Sorry - the man must be constrained to 3 minutes, and the show would... More
