This city of 3 Million inhabitants is the largest in Uganda and the capital. Situated on seven major hills, several areas command fantastic views of the surroundings, including Lake Victoria. Kampala is the political and commercial hub of Uganda, and the people are friendly and communicative. It is easy to move about the city centre and, surprisingly, the visitor does not need to be overly concerned about security. Expansion is rapid and new clubs and restaurants open regularly. A guided tour will point out the highlights including Kasubi Tombs, Uganda Museum, Parliamentary Buildings, National Theater Craft Centre, Kabaka’s Lake, Bahai Temple, Namirembe Cathedral, Namugongo Martyr’s Shrine and Makerere University.
