Kampala is the capital City of Uganda, much like Rome was originally built, spread over seven hills and takes its fabled name from Kasozi Kampala, interpreted as “the hills of the antelopes”. The origin of Kampala goes back to 1891 when the Kabaka of Buganda held his court on Rubaga and Mengo Hills.
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.
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, which commemorates twenty Ugandan Christians that were burnt alive in 1886 on the order of the Kabuki of Buganda.
