Uganda is one of Africa’s most rapidly urbanising countries with an urban population that has been steadily growing since 2008. Uganda may not have many main cities, but it has over 58 small to medium towns across the country. The Capital City Kampala sprawls over several hills in the central region, a few kilometres from the shores of by Lake Victoria. Entebbe, also located on the shores of Lake Victoria is home to Uganda’s only international airport and gateway to the country. The main city in Eastern Uganda, Jinja, is built along the River Nile and is the second busiest city after Kampala and Uganda’s oldest industrial centre. Many of Uganda’s cities maintain some of the colonial charm in both organisation and architecture, but with growing populations, high-rise buildings and multi-complexes are becoming more common. There is no shortage of cultural experiences in any one of Uganda’s main cities including craft villages, traditional performances, museums, cultural and religious sites and even flourishing Kingdoms with sitting monarchs with a cultural heritage that is over 500years old.
