7 Hills Walk
October 9, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm EAT
The Historical walk is back!
Legend has it that Kampala, like Rome, is a city that was built on seven hills. The city derives its name Kampala for the Luganda work “Kasozi ka Mpala” which means a Hill of many Impala. The Kampala of today comprises of 21 hills, but a walk through the 7 Hills will give you the opportunity to explore the genesis of the present day city.
The 7 hills are; Nsambya, Kibuli, Nakasero, Old Kampala, Namirembe, Lubaga, Lubiri. A route between the hills along paths and feeder road takes approx 5-6 hours.
The walk will be led by Deo Lubega. The start and finish point will be the Moonland Gardens on Nsambya-Gaba Road (a safe place to park with a small charge). You can contact Deo and sign up at 0708114682 or at 0775632304.
The walk will start at 8 o clock on Tuesday the 9th of Oct SHARP!
