7-Day Uganda Cultural Experience

The Uganda Cultural Experience takes you to the place where 3 countries meet- Uganda, Rwanda, and Tanzania. We introduce Nshenyi Village, a 170-hectare farm located in the Ntungamo district, at the border with Isingiro district about 2 km from Kitwe town.

The prominent village is where the eminent long-horned Ankole are reared by thousands and you get to mingle with the people and their cattle or even squeeze a cup of fresh mild from one of the cows.

From the Nshenyi farm, the Uganda cultural tour continues through awesome views of the magnificent sunsets and backdrops of the Virunga mountains.

The well-known Kagera River meanders at an estimated distance of only 5 miles, forming the natural border between Uganda-Tanzania and Rwanda-Tanzania.

This remote source of the Nile originates in the highlands of Burundi and flows its way up north, before ending in Lake Victoria.

Later you will head to Entanda Cultural Village located in Kijjudde (which means a community blessed with abundance).  This is a community-based program and tourist destination that offers an authentic cultural experience of Buganda in the central region of Uganda.

The program involves participating in Music, Dance, Drama, Culture learning, Dining and Wine, Games, and sports.

Entanda means a package that is offered to loved ones. The package could be useful advice or physical valuables that are offered to help someone for future use. It could be a daughter, son, cousin, friend, or anyone you truly love that you give Entanda.

Through active participation, visitors are able to learn a lot of things and they return home with bountiful knowledge and lessons for use in the future.

Visitors explore, learn, and enjoy. Moreover, the village where Entanda is located is called Kijjudde
