    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The National Theatre is an outdoor area of shops located in a semi-circle. There are approximately 40 of them. Each shop is a little different, owned by local people.

    Crafts are not always from Kampala, or even Uganda.

    Soapstone is almost always from Kenya.

    Malachite items almost always comes from Congo.

    What to buy: The ethnic group that is in the Kampala area is particularly well known for its drums, and in fact their drums are so well known

    What to pay: Merchants are willing to bargain. Try to see how low you can get them to go.
