Historical Gaddafi -Old Kampala Mosque- Kampala City 360 Degrees view Point

A city tour of Kampala is only complete with a visit to the National Mosque famously known as Gaddafi Mosque, with a walk up the tower for the best views of the City. This is a Tower where you are able to view Kampala City’s 7 Hills at an Angle of 360 degrees.

Kabaka’s Palace – Buganda Parliament

It is in this palace that; Kabaka Muteesa II was attacked by Idi Amin`s soldiers in 1966, forcing him to flee to exile in Great Britain from where he later died of poisoning. Located at the gate of the Tweekobe is a traditional fire place that has never burnt out since the inception of Buganda Kingdom, and shall never stop burning unless a king is dead.

Kasubi Tombs

This UNESCO-certified world heritage site was unfortunately inexplicably burnt down in 2010 and is still in the process of restorative construction although nearing completion. It was the largest grass-thatched structure in the world, and the burial place to several fallen Kings of Buganda Kingdom.

Makerere University, “the Harvard of Africa”

This University is one of the most prestigious multinational Universities in Africa with a rich history and lots of globally acclaimed professors who have taught here such as Prof. Ali Mazurui, Prof. Paul Theroux, and Prof. Ngugi w’a Thiongo. Usually referred to as the “the Harvard of Africa”, by its students.

The Baha’i Temple

This being the only Baha’i Temple in Africa makes Uganda a prime safari destination to many a tourist. The Temple has a beautiful park-like ground with lots of beautiful trees, as well as flowers and a green-carpet like grass with clean and clearly gazetted paths leading to the temple dome.

Namugongo Martyr’s Shrine

This is a globally revered memorial site from where over twenty-two young Catholic converts were burnt to ashes after rebelling against Kabaka Mwanga when he ordered them to abandon their newly-found catholic faith but in vain. Every 3rd June, the Catholic Church and their counterpart the Anglican Church hold prayers at this place which are flocked by hundreds of thousands of pilgrims who trek in from all corners of Africa.

The Uganda Museum is located in Kampala, Uganda and it is the oldest Museum in East Africa. It displays and exhibits ethnological natural-historical and traditional life collections of Uganda's cultural heritage.
