City Hotels - Kampala City

Kampala is a compelling and confident city, the centre of political intrigue, commercial activity and intellectual excellence in Uganda. Today’s forward-looking capital is vastly different from the battered city to which it was reduced to in the 1980s. Modern buildings have sprung up all over the city, and old, dilapidated ones are slowly being renovated. But it’s not only the buildings that are in better shape; there is a confidence about Kampala residents today that is infectious. Kampala cuts it.

GETTING AROUND KAMPALA

Movement in and around Kampala should be easy as the city is covered by a reliable transport network. Some distances in the capital are walkable. You may choose to use commuter taxis covering all corners of the city or hire a cab/taxi off any street. Executive car hire is also available fro the many rent-a-car companies in the city.

Another common feature is the Boda-Boda(Motorbike) transport majorly used for shorthaul shuttles in city
