Kampala is one of the most exciting and most populated cities in Africa, with so many sights and sounds that you could easily miss while in a car ride, but on a walking tour you take in everything one at a time. Unlike Kampala being city, it is also a district of its own, located in the central part of Uganda in the Buganda Kingdom. Its total population as per 2014 was 2,659,600 people. The weather in the city is warm throughout the year hence favorable for everyone, this is because of its closeness to the Equator. Also note that it has two rainy seasons as one stars from March to May and the other from August to December.
Kampala city was originally built on seven hills but has now widened and spread to over twenty two hills. It is a good place to explore with so much to see and experience and the best way to do this is on foot. It is a busy city, this makes it to be regarded to as a “a city that never sleeps”. It has lots of people, therefore venturing it and doing various activities alone could be quite scary hence there is need for a guide who can be in line to lead you through the chaos of the city center and the maze that characterizes Kampala.
