If people would like to visit Kampala, even for one day, i would strongly recommend Walter’s Boda Boda Tours (you can find him on facebook). Visiting a big and busy african city is not always that easy. Finding the right and safe transport to the right spots without a complete rip off can be tough sometimes.
Walter is a local, well experienced boda boda driver (taxi-bikes wich are all over Uganda) who knows his city in and out. He shows you, in one day or one afternoon, the city on the back of a motorbike. You can select some sites you really want to visit and he drives you there. Walter is a driving history book, he can inform you on Uganda’s history, gives an interesting and funny talk about all the places you’ll visit, but will also tell you about Kampala’s daily life (and night life). It’s a good value for your money. Walter really enjoys showing his city to the wazunga and he is never in a hurry. He takes his time and you can ask all the questions you want. If you feel like going somewhere else or have a stop at a local market or coffee shop, he doesn’t mind. The Boda drive is in no way a touristic clichÃ©, but a personalised, fun, interesting, easy, safe and local experience. I really recommand giving Walter a call. I had a great day and I got to know the city much better.
