Mini Kampala Tour

If you only have three hours to spare, then our Mini Tour is the best way to see the city! We’ll take you through 150 years of history, in 180 minutes.

Our first site is St Mary’s Cathedral, Rubaga, which is the seat of the Catholic Church in Uganda. The land was given to the Catholic missionaries in 1885, and the Cathedral is the last in a succession of structures that have built on the site.

We then head to the tomb of Kiweewa, a king who ruled for thirty days during the tumultuous 1888 religious wars. Kiweewa was killed by his brother who succeed him, and his tomb displays artefacts and traditions of Buganda kingdom.

Next, our tour takes you to Lubiri palace at Mengo. Built in 1885, the palace has been home to past four kings of Buganda kingdom, before being taken over as a military barracks in 1966.

Our final stop is the Munyonyo Martyrs’ Shrine, built over the spot where one of the Catholic martyrs, Andrew Kaggwa was killed for his faith in 1886. The Christian martyrs were 45 young members of the royal court who died for their beliefs between 1885 and 1887.

On our Mini Kampala tour, see a snapshot of Kampala’s past, and learn about Uganda’s capital city. The tour content is delivered via Bluetooth headphones, and our guide will take you around the points of interest at each site.
