Things to do in Uganda

Things to do in UgandaThere's a lot of activities to engage in during your stay in this beautiful and unspoilt area of the world. On this page we suggest some things to do in addition to the other tourist attractions you'll find throughout Western Uganda. Most are free or very reasonably priced. If staying at a local homestay probably the first thing you will want to do is go for a scenic walk along the mountain paths that will surround your accommodation. Inevitably you'll be joined by local kids eager to spend time with a "muzungo" who may introduce you to local activities such as milking local Ankole cattle to more ambitious activities such as horse-riding and outdoor swimming. This list is not comprehensive but gives a flavour of what's on offer locally.

When in Western Uganda no doubt you'll also be invited to visit people in their homes or even to celebrations such as baptisms, weddings, birthdays and anniversaries. These are wonderful occasions, although the speeches tend to be a bit long (!) and end with hours of dancing to local Ugandan music with alcohol flowing feely. If you get the chance spend such a day soaking up local culture ~ but don't plan to do anything afterwards as all events are run on local African time; everything starts and ends late!
