The atmosphere in the city is very open and friendly
The traffic is a nightmare!
I always had an urge to visit Africa. I was born and raised in London and my father is from Uganda. I eventually I decided to travel with him to connect with my Culture, learn more about my heritage and experience this beautiful part of the world. I only had three weeks off work to visit the motherland. I decided to start in the capital city of Kampala, where many of my family live. Towards the end of my journey I decided to visit Marbia Forest, which is relatively close to Kampala and makes for an amazing day trip.
Kampala is a energetic City in the heart of Africa. I had an amazing time there with family and my partner. Jahazi Pier is an great place to relax, eat local food and enjoy a Lakefront View.
Definitely, it is very important to find the time to connect with your roots and with this land full of magic and good energy.
An experience I will never forget
