Kampala City

Kampala – Uganda’s capital with an organic feel

Famous for the Impala ( a species of antelopes), the area that was later to be called Kampala was gazetted by Kabaka Mutesa I. (King of Buganda) in the 1880s as one of his favourite hunting grounds.

It later grew as the capital of Buganda Kingdom with the kingdom’s headquarters in Bulange – Mengo.

Kampala is the capital and biggest city in Uganda with a population of about 1.7 million inhabitants. It is fast becoming one of the famous destinations in Africa.
