Excellent way to learn about the diversity and beauty of Uganda, when limited by time. The presentation of Ugandan cultures, the anecdotes of the narrator and the passion of the dancers - all make the time spent at the Centre worthwhile. This is highly recommended for all visitors to Uganda and for the Ugandans who love their country!!!

Went with a group including local friends with children and American tourist. A highlight of two week trip. Beautiful dancers, cultural presentations intertwined, all around fun - ended evening with entire audience dancing. Truly fun cultural experience. Highly recommend.

The staff did a great job of entertaining our group with amazing dances. The facilities are quite new and very clean, I was impressed with their bathrooms. It is something you feel you would do on a school trip when you're young, as they explain the different types of cultural homes, but still enjoyable overall. Beautiful views too.

Definitely recommend! We greatly enjoyed the show and the dinner! The show was over three hours and kept us well-entertained. It truly taught us more about the various kingdoms with Uganda. The dinner buffet was delicious with many choices of local foods.

A potentially fantastic show, spoilt by an MC who cannot stop talking. The music and dancing is really good, always cut short so that the MC can get his bit in. Took friends there twice. Am not sure I would be able to sit through another show. It needs a good choreographer that can get the musicians and dancers to... More

Colonial style culture center with accomodation, which is affordable. Everything is a little bit "in a need of renewal", but reasonable ok. The bathroom is weekest link, but you can take a shower. Nice thing is, that rooms doesn´t have a number, but animal - we stayed in Giraffe, our company in Gorilla. The sunday service in the neibourgh chuch... More

This modern center has an outdoor amphitheatre with tables so you can eat while you watch amazing athleticism and talent. A large group of singers, dancers, and musicians (some of the people do all three at once) perform a series of different styles of dancing with great enthusiasm. The food (barbecue buffet style) was very good, and there is a... More
