    We have just arrived from a trip to Uganda organized by Gorilla Bookings. We would like to strongly recommend them as everything turned out perfectly. Both the deals prior to the start of the trip, and the program carried out. We want to especially thank our driver and guide Allan. We were lucky to be assigned this great professional, apart from being a great person. If you ever book a trip with this agency, don't hesitate to ask for him directly. He knows the places like no one else and made everything run smoothly. He balanced our trip by adapting to our way of being and offering us experiences tailored to our tastes, so we discovered that there is a Uganda beyond the gorillas that is very worthwhile. Throughout my life I have traveled a lot and it is difficult to repeat a destination. But as for Uganda, I can't wait to go back. Definitely book with Gorilla Bookings company.

    This is the biggest church in Uganda where martyrs are remembered. The church has a nice serene compound around it

    A worthwhile experience but nothing really magical. I did enjoy looking at the exhibition and inparticular the section about the Ugandans participation in the Olympic Games over the years.
    There are some good displays here to give a flavour of Uganda. I spent about an hour here and it was very cheap to get in. They only accept cash.

    You can't understand Uganda until you understand Buganda - it´s most populous and prosperous area. For no other reason than that it is worth visiting the Kabaka´s Palace - the ceremonial home of the King of Buganda.

    I use the dentist and doctor of Aga Khan, Shoprite for shopping, Caramel for bread, Cafesserie for ice and food and Kentucky for the kids. Perfect

    Our local birding guide, Raimond (+256-777 319 865), was excellent and well above the average guiding, not only for Uganda but worldwide! Pitty that you cannot go farther enough into the reserve, but well deserved.

    At the time of my visit, The Kasubi Tombs were under renovation, although it seemed that it has taken a long time since this started.

    My tour guide and myself were greeted by a not very happy guard who asked me to wear kind of like a blanket around my waist because I was wearing trousers instead of a dress. I did as I was asked and we went to visit the tombs.

    At the entrance they show you the huts where people live, along with an explanation of why a woman cannot visit one of them, since it is reserved only for the main kabaka.

    The Kasubi Tombs became a UNESCO world heritage site back in 2001, but it is a shame that the place has not been maintained properly. Hopefully the renovation ends soon so other people can admire it.

    Namirembe cathedral is a must on a day trip in Kampala city. The cathedral is on the Namirembe hill. Walking up to the cathedral, you would be able to enjoy the city laid out on the side of the hill. There are millions of beautiful birds giving you the company. Sundays are busy and noisy. For foreign nationals, there is a guided tour available with UGX 10000. The tour takes you through the cathedral's history. But what is more worth is the visit to the cathedral. The structure is made of old Mahogany wood and is quite grand. I especially liked the Berlin Wall remnant. Keep at least 45 minutes for the visit. I was not impressed with the souvenirs on display as most items were too religious in nature.

    Overall nice monument located near the Ugandan parliament. It’s not the biggest or best monument but worth seeing when visiting Kampala for the history of Uganda and the brutal colonization they had to endure before full independence.

    Have been to this casino a few times. It is well set out and had a good variety of gambling options. There are good parking options and the location is great as it is very central. It has a great restaurant connected to it with some excellent food options. Just a heads up, there is no ATM at this place. (could be seen as a good or bad thing)
