On June 3, 1886 in the town of Namugongo just northeast of Kampala, 26 young men were burned to death for their refusal to their Anglican and Catholic faiths. The Uganda Martyrs’ Shrine, also called the Namugongo Martyrs’ Shrine, was built on the site to commemorate the lives lost and was consecrated by Pope Paul VI in 1969.

The church, built in the shape of a typical Baganda hut, features 22 copper pillars representing each of the 22 Catholic men, all of whom were formally canonized in 1964, a first in modern Africa. On June 3 each year, Catholic pilgrims from throughout Uganda visit the Uganda Martyrs’ Shrine to pay their respects and attend mass.

Kampala City Day Tour

Kampala City Day Tour

star-4.5
2
Kampala, the capital of Uganda is the heartbeat of the nation. Almost all trade and commerce happen here. The majority of institutions and organizations have their offices in Kampala. The population is 6 million by day and 1.5 million at night. Our slogan is organized chaos. Thousands of lawless minivans and bodabodas make up our public transportation. Every minute in or on them is like being in an action movie. However, despite the frenzy and all the features of a third world economy, the people are so friendly, we are so rich in culture, it is so easy to get around and fit in, our food has a lot of variety, and most of it is effortlessly organic. The weather is also awesome almost all year round. At Venture Out, we are storytellers. What makes our tour unique is the way we go deep into history to tell how things came about and their impact on us today such that it all comes together for the guest in a way that clicks so they can appreciate Kampala better.

1 day Kampala Photographic/General City Tour

ABOUT KAMPALA CITY Kampala obtained the status of the City and was declared the commercial and administrative Capital of Uganda at the country’s independence in 1962. As early as the 11th century it was the center of the interlucustre Kingdom of Buganda and by the 1850’s it was the center of trade for Arabs dealing in slaves and ivory. The evolution of Kampala came in 1890 when Captain Fredrick Lugard was sent to Uganda as an agent of the Imperial British East African Company to govern Uganda on behalf of the British Crown which had been given the territory following the Berlin conference of 1884 that partitioned Africa among the European powers then. Today, the city encompasses 21 hills altogether.
