You can wile away a few hours or days in Kasese before setting off on your next adventure. Certainly the Rwenzori Arts Centre, some seven miles north of the town, is worth a visit as it features sculptures cast in bronze by the Rwenzori Founders or carved in Moroto soapstone and marble. The Rwenzururu Palace is worth a brief nod whilst the Katwe Village Tour has mixed reviews with some describing it as a "terrible rip-off" whilst others have enjoyed exploring the lives and homestays of local salt workers. Perhaps the most popular of the things to do in Kasese is to take a boat ride (above image) on the Kazinga channel; a wide, 20 mile long channel that connects Lake George and Lake Edward.
