Kampala Vacation

What are the best places to visit in Kampala?

We've got all the hot sightseeing tips for your trip to Kampala. Grab your planner and get ready to start padding out your itinerary.

Over the years, countless great minds and visionaries have studied within the classrooms of Makerere University. Learn about its rich history and accomplishments, and wander the campus on a guided tour. Visitors in this destination have an abundance of choice. You don't have to be a grave hunter or a tombstone tourist to enjoy a stroll around Kasubi Tombs. Why not check if there's a tour happening and learn some of the history behind this fascinating graveyard? Still have time on your hands? If you're seeking some spiritual enlightenment on your getaway, pay a visit to Rubaga Cathedral. You never know, you may even glimpse the answers to some of life's most pressing questions!

What types of accommodations are available in Kampala?

The wide variety of Expedia accommodations in Kampala means that you won't be short on choice. That being said — the sooner you book your room in the national capital, the sooner you can start organizing all your cool activities. We have luxury getaways and cheap vacations for every kind of traveler.

Kampala's more upmarket options such as the Kampala Serena Hotel (Kintu Road) and the Sheraton Kampala Hotel (Ternan Avenue) are bound to bring a smile to the most discerning travelers. If bargain traveling's more your thing, you (and your wallet) might prefer the Eight Winx Hotel (plot 7 Kakungulu Rd), or the Trekkers Tavern Cottages (National Theater building 1st floor).

Nearly ready for your trip to Kampala? Wondering where you'll be landing? Entebbe International Airport (EBB) is the most convenient option. Once you've touched down and stepped out of the gate, you'll be 20 miles from the bustle of the main areas.
