Kampala has received its first ever sightseeing tourist bus.

The double-decker, open-roof bus has been provided by private tour firm, Promote Uganda Safari, to give passengers the opportunity to view the historic buildings and sights of Kampala, which are a significant part of the country’s culture and heritage.

The 69-seat bus was launched in December last year and makes two daily trips.

Margaret Kaffero, Uganda’s Foreign Affairs Ministry Spokesperson, said: “We have visitors who are only here, say, for two days and probably have a conference in the morning and have the whole afternoon free. This is a wonderful opportunity, because there is so much to learn within the seven hills of Kampala,” reported africanews.
