General opinion: Kampala is nice but not very safety. Better be careful, however there are a variety of nice things like commodities but also be aware of expiry dates. Also watch TV, and listen to radio to let you know what will take place in Kampala before you go there. This is for safety reasons.

General opinion: kampala should be better than that the planning is too old for such a big city for the nation and things should be separeted. In my opinion administration should be separeted to another town and bussiness should be in a different town.

General opinion: Many people are very poor in Kampala. The government is taking less responsibility to workers in Kampala. All street are full of street kids. Go to visit a different culture and life.

General opinion:  Kampala, estimated population 1.300.000, is Uganda's capital as well as its administrative, communication, economic, and transportation centre.
It is located in the southern part of the country on Lake Victoria. Kampala: it is said to be built on seven hills, but the city centre is just one of them, Nakasero.
Despite its proximity, (20 mi/32 km), to the equator, Kampala has a moderate climate, largely because of its altitude, (c.4,000 ft/1,220 m).
Kampala is one of the few African capitals that were not founded by the colonialists.
On one of ... More the hills that characterize the city at present, the kings of the Baganda-people had long established their court.
In 1890 Captain Frederick Lugard, representative of the British East Africa Company, built a fort on the opposite hill and the city grew a lot around it.
In 1962, Kampala replaced Entebbe as the national capital.
Unfortunately, much of the city was destroyed after the 1979 overthrow of Idi Amin's dictatorship and the subsequent Civil War.
In just a decade, since President Museveni came into power in 1986, Kampala has rapidly recovered and is now a safe, busy and lively city with an undeniable vibrant nightlife.

General opinion: Its a very good city and a wonderful one to stay in, night life is very great and you can stay in various guest houses based all around the city. During day time it is very busy and at time is as well very busy and bars are almost at every corner of the road. Bodabodas (motorcycles) are sometimes very dangerous to travel with around the city.
