Discover magical Uganda

The superlatives are many in a country where Mother Nature is the crowning jewel; Uganda is home to the Mountains of the Moon, the highest mountain range in Africa, as well as the source of the mighty Nile River. One of the rarest species on the planet, the mountain gorilla, resides in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, and more than 1,000 species of birds call the country home.

» Kisenyi Slum

Kisenyi Slum, Uganda

Located in the heart of Kambala adjacent to the capital's central business district lies its biggest slums, Kisenyi. The residents of Kisenyi live in extremely close quarters, and less than half of them have access to water within their homes. Flooding, poor sanitation and eviction are the day-to-day threats for the men, women and children who live here. Despite its bleak quality of life, Kisenyi has a lively, active atmosphere filled with informal businesses - everything from butcher shops and fruit vendors to furniture and metalworking shops …

» Lubiri Palace

Lubiri Palace, Uganda

The British-inspired colonial Lubiri Palace sits on top of Mengo Hill and has long served as the residence of the Buganda King. The sprawling grounds are most famously home to the underground prisons and torture chambers used by the dictator Idi Amin during the 1970s and later by President Obote for the same purpose. The dark cement tunnels and chambers, originally built for weapons storage, once held political prisoners - sometimes in the hundreds - crammed into small cells raised up on platforms …

» Nakasero Market

Nakasero Market, Uganda

On the south side of Nakasero Hill, one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in Kampala, sits the huge and chaotic Nakasero Market. While the top half of the hill is dominated by hotels, embassies and elite residential neighborhoods, market and surrounding area offers a completely different and very vibrant atmosphere. The large outdoor portion of Nakasero Market specializes in fresh local produce, and it's one of the most colorful food markets in Uganda. It's also just about the cheapest option for purchasing fruits and vegetables …

» Old Taxi Park

Old Taxi Park, Uganda

You haven't seen a traffic jam until you've witness the Old Taxi Park in Kampala. Located in the triangle between Luwum, Burton and South Streets, the park serves taxis and minibuses headed to in Eastern Kampala and Uganda. While a taxi park might not sound interesting at first, the Old Taxi Park has become one of Kampala's most popular (and free) tourist attractions, as visitors come not just for transportation, but to witness the seemingly chaotic yet somehow functional scene as thousands of drivers in their white vans navigate the congested spot …

» Uganda National Mosque

Uganda National Mosque, Uganda

The Uganda National Mosque, formerly called the Gaddafi National Mosque, is to the city of Kampala what the Eiffel Tower is to Paris and the Statue of Liberty to New York. Located in the old city on Kampala Hill, the giant 12-acre facility serves as the headquarters of Islam in Uganda. Construction of the mosque began in 2004, after the unfinished Old Kampala National Mosque from the 1970s was demolished. Completed in 2008, the mosque can accommodate some 35,000 worshippers, but double the number pack in during Ramadan and other Islamic holidays …

» YARID Center

YARID Center, Uganda

YARID, short for Young African Refugees for Integral Development, was founded in 2007 by a Congolese refugee living in Uganda. Today, the YARID Center seeks to empower refugees, orphans and other displaces persons through education, healthcare and training to become contributing members of society.
