    Top Descriptions

    Like many impoverished capital cities, Kampala is traffic-choked, polluted, ramshackle and poorly managed. Poverty is easy to see and difficult to avoid – although it’s certainly palpably safer here than in neighbouring . We dodged the city as best as we could, and you might want to do so too. Saying that, if you’ve grown fond of Kampala or have an insight that you’d like to share, then would love to see it shared right here. – Daniel

    Top Tips

    Have fun driving out of Kampala if you’ve rented a car with . The roads are congested and manic. You might be better picking up the car in Entebbe and avoiding as much of the capital as possible.
    Consider basing yourself at if you’d rather stay somewhere on the outskirts of Kampala. It’s certainly peaceful where they’re located, although it’s also through the city and well out of the way of anything else.
