Heard about Ndere Centre from co workers at the US embassy in Kampala. Fridays are best to see the performance and also have the early evening buffet. So amazing that I went back again, and highly recommend to others. Music, dance, ambiance. The story pulls you in and gives us a great appreciation for the various tribes and regions in... More

Ndere centre is one of those places where you get a feel of the diversity that is Uganda. I've attended their Sunday performances several times and it never gets old. They get to perform songs and dances from all corners of Uganda also featuring different props and costumes from these areas. The performances are not only entertaining but guests are... More

The Ndere Centre's evening performances are simultaneously a music, dance and visual spectacular, and a brilliantly executed and presented cultural showcase. The performance I attended is one of the highest quality experiences I've had in East Africa. The performance was beautiful, celebratory, and varied. I left at the end of the evening thrilled and elated to have seen and experienced... More

If you have visited ndere centre of recent, you will realise a number of huts (grass-thatched houses) being constructed at Ndere centre in big numbers. They are already appearing very attractive even before they are fully completed. So to those who enjoy history, the next time you visit Ndere centre, pls take a walk around and check them out, am...

Ndere cultural centre is a must-visit for anyone in kampala. From the music to the dance troupe, to the extremely entertaining host ( who was also a supporting actor in the movie last king of scotland ) It was an EXHILARATING experience for my family and I .

I can't give enough praise for this event! The performers possess such intense energy and talent - making this evening one of the best I ever enjoyed while staying in Uganda. The variety of performances displaying the different tribes/regions of Uganda were stunning. The music was intense! Huge drums, harps and other native instruments gave great insight into the uniqueness... More

This show had everything going for it, until the MC (who seems to be the man who runs the centre and the show) decides to be the centre of attention and ruins it. The dancers are great, the music is great, the location is great...it all seems good, but then the guy presenting the show takes over and interjects with... More

We had a great night at the Ndere centre. The tranditional dances from all over the country give you an interesting insight in the different tribes and cultures in Uganda. Also the food is great. Only remark is that a lot of the explanations (sometimes it felt like it was more a comedy show) were in Luganda, so not possible... More
