1. 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.
