    Lake Mburo National park

    by Africancrab Written Dec 31, 2012

    This is a smaller park located about three hours outside of Kampala. It is the closest national Park to Kampala, known for its Zebras. Besides the zebras it has other animals and primates like baboons. Crocodiles in the lake, so be cautious when you get to the lake.

    Topis, deer and Impalas are plentiful, you will be able to see them, I recommend taking the boat ride to enjoy the scenes of the mountains and view the many birds in the air and trees around.

    Sipi Falls

    by Africancrab Written Dec 31, 2012
    The Falls from across the hills

    Sipi Falls is located in Kapchorwa near Mbale district and at the edge of Mount Elgon. The Sipi River is named after the ‘Sep’, a plant indigenous to the banks of the River. Resembling a type of wild banana, Sep is a medicinal plant; the translucent green frond with a bolt of crimson rib is used for treating measles and fever. Sipi is an ideal place to relax in the warm mountain sun and to go for rambles in the shambas - homestead gardens- of the local Sebei people. Because this is a rich coffee producing region, you will have the best Arabica coffee produced locally by the Sebei farmers.

    Kampala City Centre

    by kentishgirl Updated Jan 21, 2007
    Kampala City


    Kampala City is quite compact and so easy to negotiate on foot. We enjoyed going into the city and exploring on foot, most days we walked along the citys main throughfare, looking in the small shops and browsing the stalls that locals set up along the pavements.
    One day we walked along side streets and found a beautiful pedestrian area with fountains, another day we wandered by the huge bus station and fought our way through the markets.....Kampala is a beautiful, friendly city which we would certainly visit again if we had the opportunity.

    If you spend any time at all in Kampala you will either pass the elaborately built Sikh temple or see it from a distance.

    Kampala is not a modern city with many high buildings and fancy streets. Many of the roads within the city are dusty gravel roads. The picture is taken close to Owino market in the downtown.
