Culture, Kingdoms and Political Drama in The British Protectorate.


This is mainly a historic tour about the development of Uganda into a country from monarchies through colonial days to date. It focuses on the two major places that shape its history; Kampala and Entebbe. You will get to see the effects of the interruption that was Colonialism on what is now Uganda and how it continues to affect the country as a whole. This will include, myths, sayings and legends told by folks long ago.

There will also be some fun things to see and learn, it will not all be educational. Although historic, I plan on giving the tour in a lighthearted manner, like I am telling stories of old.
