On your next trip to Uganda’s capital make sure to consider our Kampla car hire services. The capital’s situated close to the shores of Lake Victoria and its inhabitants are generally friendly and approachable.
The city is served by the airport in nearby Entebbe, which is a city thirty-five kilometers away from the capital. The Entebbe airport is connected to the capital via hotel shuttle services, minibus routes and of course taxis but your best choice by far would be to employ our Kampala car rental services and have a car ready for you at the airport as soon as you land.
It is interesting to note that despite its large population the city has not become overwhelmed by traffic jams and as opposed to Nairobi for instance, Kampala is very safe to walk around even at night. Getting around the city is done mostly by motorized means and your best choice would be to have your own car at your disposal rather than the sometime risky business of taking a boda boda – this is the name for the ever-present motorcycles that you will see during your stay there.
Once in the city there are some sights that you might want to visit for instance the Uganda Museum or the local cathedrals. The Kasubi tombs were a major tourist site but they were damaged by a massive fire in 2010 and their restoration is undergoing.
The city offers many various type of activities such as rafting, bungee jumping and ATV safaris being some of the highlights of these types of things however there are a couple of unique opportunities available as well such as booking a Gorilla safari with the country’s Wildlife Authority in Kololo, similarly the Mburo National Park is a great place for an excursion in order to see wild animals in their natural habitat and visiting the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary is something that you can consider as well.
There are many other things to see and do in Uganda’s capital, so make sure to consider our Kampala car hire services for the duration of your trip.
