With a population of some 101,679, Kasese is one of the fastest growing areas in Uganda being not only home to the Hima Cenmet Company and Kilembe Mines (Uganda's largest copper mine) but as a tourist attraction being widely seen as a gateway to Queen Elizabeth National park and the stunning Rwenzori mountains. With its own airport, which is in the process of being upgraded to an international airport, it is likely Kasese will expand over the next decade, however, at present, its still a small sleepy town but with a few excellent places to stay and eat as you prepare for your safari or trip into the nearby mountains. Nevetheless Kasese is looking forward to the future being committed to developing renewable energy supplies and improving the health and life outcomes of its residents by challenging deforestation, land degradation and reducing the use of dangerous energy sources such as kerosene.
Whilst not abundant with cafes and hotels, there are sufficient, and of good quality, not to matter and they cater both for the budget traveller to the Kasese area ad well as those looking for something a bit more upmarket.
