Kampala Nightlife

During the day, Kampala is alive with business, but when the night falls, it turns into a vampires arena, with ladies of the night taking over on almost every corner.

The culture is now rooted and it will stay with us for a very long time. Ugandans enjoy going out. The Bars stay open until morning and the party continues all over Kampala. Christian church (non-denominational) praise God through the night with night prayers that rock the city as this goes on in exalting God, there is a party in full blast somewhere else in Kampala.

Nightlife is both safe and dangerous because of bouncers in the bars and clubs and Ugandans for the most part are simply friendly and hospitable. Much as there are those with a purpose for fun, so are those with purpose for taking advantage of the dark and drunkards by nicking whatever, they can with a quick getaway fading into the dark corridors or crowds. At most pubs, security is paramount and a body search without segregation will takes place when entering most night Joints.

Without you asking or consulting with your hotel reception, a cab will be the best way of transport out of your hotel to a happening place. It is safe to ride a taxi (special hire) than a boda boda for safety reasons both life and property. Going out in a group ensures more safety for you and others. When going out please remember not to bring your valuables like passport, a lot of Cash, expensive jewellery, cameras phones and watches, unless you are sure you are not going to get drunk.

There are yellow taxis, friendship taxis, quiki taxis you can attain their toll-free line in the eye magazine. Try to bargain and make jokes, “Can you lend me a lift I will pay you at the end of the month. Or Take me to my hotel or out then I will get you a visa to my country in return.” Then simile a lot Some of the joints that have most expatriates and foreigners.
