Uganda's beauty so took winston churchill's breath away that he named it 'The Pearl of Africa'

Kampala

The greenest city in Africa

Like Rome, Kampala is built on seven glorious fertile hills. But Kampala’s hills not only provide a beautiful backdrop to the city, but also its living history, its definition and they furnish unique points of orientation and identity. There are three religious hills- Lubaga Hill is Catholic, Namirembe Hill provides the headquarters of the British Church Missionary Society, while Kibuli Hill is Muslim. Nakasero Hill and Kololo Hill provide administrative offices and diplomatic residential areas and Makerere Hill is home to the University Campus. Mengo Hill, where the Buganda King’s palace was situated provided a reception point for foreign missionaries arriving in Uganda. Kampala hill (hill of the antelopes- Ka Impala), after which the city was named provided the fort.

After work the city’s friendliness is most apparent in its enormous capacity to enjoy itself and, in the past few years, new restaurants, nightclubs, bars and casinos have been springing up all over the city. There is hardly a country that isn’t represented very effectively when it comes to extremely good eating and drinking.
