Take a Day Tour around Kampala city.
Uganda not only has a rich bio diversity in its wildlife but also a rich cultural diversity as this pearl of Africa has over 56 tribes and Kampala city being the capital city is a conglomerate of all these people hence being a truly reflection of Uganda’s cultural diversity. A Kampala city tour gives you an insight into the diverse attractions Kampala city has to offer to you. On 1-day Kampala city tour experience the Uganda public transport which is an adventure of its own with a visit to the old taxi park and witness the quite nervous wrecking public transport.
Old taxi park: For those of you who come from countries where you have cabs as taxis used as means of public transport and its only one individual or a pair of friends moving to a particular place that hail it to take them to their destination… well, you need to come to Uganda and a 1 day Kampala city excursion and see our version of taxis! trust me, it will be worth of your time. For starters let me try to shade light on what we Ugandans call taxi. This is a fourteen-seater van which is used by the general public to commute from one place to another. These taxis are managed by two people i.e. a driver and a taxi tout who we normally call the conductor. The principle job of this conductor is to call for people going to a particular destination to board his taxi, he also solicits for the transport fares from the onboard passengers before they get to their destinations. While using Ugandan taxis, there are no fixed fares as the fares are determined by the demand and availability of passengers and travel hours…. You can easily board a taxi for 1000ugx as transport fare from one point to another and after just an hour the same taxi demands 2500ugx to take you still to the same destination. Now that’s where the old taxi park comes in, now imagine a swarm of these vans parked in one place with their conductors shouting all names of places within and outside the city, that’s the old taxi park right there… I tell you it’s an absolute frenzy and chaos when you come here, but don’t feel sorry for us cause that’s the way we like it! This taxi park is located in the valley between Nakasero and Old Kampala hill.
Grab and bite a rolex!!….
While on a Uganda trip, you will understand why Ugandans have never won a rolex but rather can eat one. On your Uganda day excursions, if you are not a fussy feeder take a moment and enjoy Uganda’s biggest fast food delight which is a nicely crafted rolex. A rolex is made of an omellete with fried onions, green pepper and cabbage and raw tomato slices rolled together a freshly pan baked chapati. Trust me when I say that this road side stall food delight gives KFC a run for its money in Uganda but you don’t have to take my word for it, you’ve just got to taste it to believe it.
With all this and more expect nothing else but a truly exciting and remarkable Uganda tour adventure as you get the see the best of Uganda.
