Kampala Central Division ( Capital City of Uganda Kampala ) ~ Gorilla Tour Booking Safaris
Kawempe Division, Makindye Division, Nakawa Division, Lubaga Division, and Kampala Central division.
Kampala city is regarded as the capital city of Uganda. It is named after animals called the ‘impalas’ which are now found in Lake Mburo National park. The impalas are middle- sized African Antelopes. The City is home to over 2 million people with the city divided into five divisions: Kawempe Division, Makindye Division, Nakawa Division, Lubaga Division, and Kampala Central division.


Kampala Central division.

This is the business center of the city with most business offices and other commercial interest buildings. Nakasero hill is the home of Kampala central division. Most business around the city is selling merchandises like clothes, bags, and others. The city is moderately planned with some buildings and streets specifically meant for special types of businesses. For example, Energy center building and Kiyembe lane is known for selling Electronics and electrical accessories; Some parts of kampala road like Mabirizi plaza are known for selling computers and accessories; Nasser road is known for printing, and a newly constructed building has been named printers’ miracle center just to showcase what miracles the printer has performed to the business people in this area; Kisekka market is known for car parts and accessories. One of the notable lanes is the kikuubo lane where you find all sorts of merchandise. People in this area sell at both wholesale and retail prices. Most business people from Kikuubo import their products which are then sold at both retail and whole prices. Everyone loves this lane and many believe that it is where find Kampala’s rich people. One of the things that I found out about the city is that 90 percent of the buildings within the central business district are actually owned by Ugandans who normally name these building after their own names. There are pretty amazing names on the list: both men and female. This has given the young one or those who are working their way to the top a lot of hope because they believe that if other Ugandans have made it, them too can make it. This is true because some of stories behind these rich people are astonishing and courageous.

Life in the city is so amazing. It’s all about how much you have in your pockets. In Kampala, you can choose to live as luxurious as you would wish to live and at the same time as moderate as you could afford. For those in the middle and upper class, there are restaurants, hotels, clothing boutiques, and residential areas that can fully accommodate their life style. And for the moderate people, they have theirs too. However there are festivals that unite all people of all sorts of walks:
Kampala city festival, this is an annual festival that occurs toward that the end of the year where people come together to celebrate the city. The festival is organized by the Kampala City Authority, an authority that administers the city.

MTN marathon: this marathon is organized by MTN, a telecommunication company, where the funds are obtained from the marathon goes towards a certain public cause.

Kabaka Marathon: this marathon commemorates the Kings’ birthday.
Bayimba International Festival of music and art-this showcase the Uganda’s best music, dance, and theater plus many more.

For those that love tourist attractions there are many around the city:
Kasubi tombs-this is a burial ground for four kabakas, kings of Buganda, and other members of the Buganda royal family.

Uganda Museum- displays natural historical and traditional collections of Uganda’s culture.

Lubaga cathedral- this is one of the historical cathedrals in the city which is located on Lubaga hill.

Gadaffi National Mosque-This is a beautiful mosque located at Kampala Hill in Old Kampala.


The other divisions in the city are mainly residential areas with not so much business activities as the central division.
