Kampala, the Capital City of Uganda, is spread over seven hills and takes its fabled name from Kasozi K'impala, interpreted as "the hills of the antelopes". Today as you stand on the hills within Kampala you are blessed with magnificent evergreen views intermingled with red tiled villas, green iron roofed bungalows and tall modern buildings surrounded by a lush green countryside and the nearby Lake Victoria. While Kampala is often referred to as the greenest city in Africa, it is also the heart of Uganda, serving as the center of commercial life and the seat of government. It is a vibrant modern metropolis adorned with many beautiful gardens and parks which provides a colorful oasis in the midst of the urban landscape for both the citizens and visitors to admire. There are many attractions to see in Kampala such as : The Kasubi Tombs, which were the traditional royal tombs of the Kabakas of Buganda; The Namugongo Martyrs' Shrine, the Ugandan Museum, the National Theater of Uganda, etc which opened in 1959 and is truly a national theater for the people of Uganda; The cathedrals and the market places of Kampala deserve special mention. Kampala may not be a rich city, but it's got the largest mosque in East Africa and a huge set of markets named Owino. But what sounds most captivating about Kampala is the chaos. There's no public transport to speak of, so travelers simply hail motorbikes to get where they're going. You will love the balmy climate of Kampala, freshened by big rainstorms, gorgeous flowering trees and friendly people.
