Kampala: 3-Hour Walking Tour with Optional Gaddafi Mosque

Kampala: 3-Hour Walking Tour with Optional Gaddafi Mosque

Embark on a 3-hour walking tour of Kampala with a local guide. Discover both popular and lesser-known landmarks, and get a taste of local life in bustling markets. Opt to upgrade your experience to include a 1-hour visit to the Gaddafi National Mosque at the end of the walking tour. Meet up at the Craft Market on Buganda Road and receive a briefing from the guide. Then, visit historical monuments and noteworthy government installations like Constitutional Square, the World War Memorial Monument, Independence Monument, the King Muteesa II Monument, and the Main Post Office. Take a toilet/refreshment break at a popular local café. Next, cross to activity-filled downtown Kampala and experience the hubbub of Nakasero Market, the Old Taxi Park, and Owino Market. Taste street food, smell herbs and spices, and shop for local fabrics. Finish with an optional boda (local motorbike taxi) ride back to the Craft Market — or walk if you prefer — and round off your experience by shopping for souvenirs or sampling local coffee at the 1000 Cups cafe. If you select the option that includes the Gaddafi National Mosque, officially the Uganda National Mosque, you will ride a boda to the mosque and spend 1 hour touring it. Climb to the top of the minaret and get the best view of the city. See how the city expanded out from the spot where Fredrick Lugard established the old city of Kampala. Finally, conclude your tour by returning to the Craft Market by boda.

Our tour with Andrew was fantastic, beginning from the flexibility of booking and planning to him staying with us up to our pick-up. His ability to introduce visitors to Ugandan history is fascinating as he can even answer special questions. While walking through the open market and the urban areas in the city center, we felt really safe. Often, he explained some things with or without questions, but he also left time to absorb the feeling of this special city. We advise you to book a tour and then communicate with them about specific questions or needs.

The tour was amazing! Ronald is an very professional guide who showed us Kampala with all the markets, the people, the culture and the food! I would recommend every visitor of Kampala to do this tour and experience the real Kampala with Ronald! Since there was so muss to see 3 hours were not enough and we spent way more time in the roads!
