Ugandan Towns


Ugandan Towns


There are very few Ugandan towns that are "oldy worldly" not least because Uganda is a very new country only born in 1962. As such, and without any form of town planning, most small towns have grown up around roads with sprawling small cement buildings offering their wares often repeated until the town or villages returns to open countryside. The country does, however, offer some major towns which are of a different quality. Equally busy and bustling with loud activity and boda boda motorcycle drivers constantly trying to compete for your business, these larger towns such as Kabale and Mbarara have long histories with an equally wide range of goods and services for sale  from quality restaurants to hotels and major shopping outlets where nearly everything you could want can be purchased.


This guide currently features the Western Ugandan towns of Ntungamo and Fort Portal as well as Kabale and Mbarara and will be supplemented with guides to other towns shortly as they become available.
