thoroughly enjoyed some interesting local cuisine and spent a most enjoyable evening watching the amazing dancers and musicians guided by the extraordinary and hugely talented Stephen Rwangyenzi. This troupe (and endere means flute) has performed all over and it was an absolute delight to watch them in their own home.

We have been in Ndere a many times over the years. The show is very nice, the dancers are skilled and always with a huge smile, so it's very enjoyable. However, last few times we have attended, we noticed that the breaks in between dances are longer than before, so the chairman of the show talks a lot... and when... More

Came her with work and was positively surprised. We had a very nice meal with well seasoned barbeque followed by a great dance exhibition. Very skilled and devoted dancers and a well planned entertaining show. Lots of culture and humor! Loved every minute of it and will gladly come back!

Saw an amazing cultural show here featuring the Ndere dance group. Such a spectacular performance, though, a bit long. Well worth the price.

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

If you want to get a taste of a variety of authentic Uganda Culture and entertainment within a short time and without having to visit all corners of Uganda, Ndere Troupe is the place to visit. There is something for everyone. You will be rivetted and the three hours will go by without your notice. The dances come from all... More
