Want to make the most of your getaway to Kampala? We’ve put together a guide to great day trips you can take using the Uber app!

History-Buffs: Kasubi Tombs

Kampala is a city with a long and rich history, meaning there’s no end to the stories you can discover hidden amongst its streets. If you’re interested in finding out more about the city’s past and the events of times-gone-by, make sure to pay a visit to the Kasubi Tombs, the burial site for the members of the Buganda Kingdom.

Animal-Lovers: Uganda Wildlife Conservation Education Centre

Lions and chimpanzees and elephants, oh my! The Uganda Wildlife Conservation Education Centre is more than a zoo, it’s a rescue, and the perfect place to spend an afternoon with the family. Check the timetable to ensure you don’t miss any of the events and keep an eye out for the keepers who give regular talks about the animals. Let your guide take you towards your favourite animals or just wander around and see what you discover!

Nature-Walkers: Kabaka’s lake

Looking for an escape from city life during your getaway? Take a trip to the scenic Kabaka’s lake and unwind in the acres of beautiful green space. Take a stroll around the ponds, bring along a book and find somewhere to settle down with a picnic.

Selfie-Takers: The independence monument

You can’t return home from your trip without an Instagram-worthy snap (or two). The independence monument is one of the most distinctive landmarks of Uganda. It’s a unique experience – and photo opportunity! – to soak up while you’re in the city. Head over there to get your brand-new profile picture.  

Art-Enthusiasts: Asante Art Gallery

Get a serious dose of art with a trip to the Asante Art Gallery. An ode to the work of the best-known Ugandan artists, this museum is an absolute must while you’re in Kampala. It’s a great day out for all the family, so make sure you check out the museum’s calendar to see which exhibitions are on.
