Meet your guide at the prearranged meeting point in Kampala, and then travel by air-conditioned minivan to the city center.
On arrival, take to the Ugandan capital’s lively streets on foot. Your first stop is the Old Taxi Park, a sprawling mass of vehicles that is a true sight to behold. Then, continue to Nakasero Market. Together with your guide, weave through the stalls, and soak up the bustling atmosphere as locals haggle with traders over fresh produce.
Next, make your way to Constitutional Square, the city’s only public square, before strolling to the Parliament of Uganda building. Listen as your guide shares stories of how the country gained its independence, and then return to the minivan for the next leg of the tour.
Sink into your comfortable seat and peer out of the window as you travel toward Eastern Uganda. Pass by the Mandela National Stadium, and then stop at the Uganda Martyrs Shrine. Walk around the shrine (own expense) and learn about the group of Anglican and Catholic converts who were executed in the late 1800s, during the religious struggle for political power at the Buganda royal court.
