Ndere centre is the place to experience first hand the great variety of both Ugandan music and dances. The centre also has a restaurant, and makes good outing for both adults and children.

A great night for adults and kids. I took my family who visited from the UK and the kids loved the music, dancing and colour. You can opt to pay to eat - local food and also some BBQ - good value for money

Omg the show was amazing. Funny, entertaining and inspiring. My first time in Africa and i recommend highly. This is the kind of stuff we see on TV in the US. Nothing compares to live and in person.
