Although not overwhelming, this is an interesting visit. The tour was very informative, and shed light on the geopolitical history of modern day Uganda. Unfortunately, a portion was closed for repairs during our visit.

We visited on a Saturday afternoon. Despite the site being under renovation, our guide took us round and explained in great detail the significance of this site. If you have an hour or 2 i suggest you visit.

Went with a friend and it was a very interesting experience. We had to get wraps to cover outselves as we were wearing pants. Our guide was very helpful.

We took a tour of this place where the kings of the Bugandan tribe are buried. We had a very knowledgeable and easily understood tour guide who took us around and explained what we were seeing. The tour takes about an hour.

Very interesting and well worth a visit. The guides are well versed in the history and culture of the kingdoms and tribal history of this area of Uganda. The site is well preserved and hopefully the planned improvement will all be completed at some point.

Really not much to see other than listening to a story from the guide about who is buried here. It is all in need of rebuilding. We thought it was closed when we got there.
