Uganda: Kampala

The capital of Uganda is Kampala. It is located at an altitude of 1000 meters, the “hill of the antelopes”. When the city was founded, many antelopes are said to have lived there. Many people are now drawn to the capital, which is therefore always full. 1.7 million people live here. Entebbe was the capital of Uganda until 1962. The city is located about 40 kilometers south of Kampala on a peninsula in Lake Victoria.
