“Fun evening of culture and food in open air”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Went with a small group on a weekday night. It wasn't very crowded, although I was told that it can be busy on weekends. The show is presented in open air with coliseum seating, plastic tables and chairs. Very pleasant with mild Kampala weather in April. Food is served either buffet style for "local style food" or one piece of meat (chicken, pork, goat) for the BBQ section. It wasn't terrible, but not all that great either. I guess you are here for the show.

And what a show it is. It is a cultural tour of Uganda's various tribes and how they dance and sing. The 20 or so dancers are great as are the musicians. The show is "hosted" by 2 guys who were entertaining and informative. We left just before the start of audience participation about one hour into the show.

It was very entertaining and worth doing if you have the chance. It is not far from the center of the city, but the traffic is always a bear in Kampala, so be prepared!

“Tourist hotspot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Tourism makes the price high here. The food choice is quite good with the buffet or BBQ option, but BBQ limited to one piece of meat.

“Great Night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

This is the best cultural thing I've seen in 10 years in Uganda. Dances from many different tribes of Uganda. Large "band" and many dancers. Funny MC.

Delightful!
