Kampala Hotel Owners Association
Welcome to Uganda
I AM VERY HONOURED to write this foreword introducing the Uganda Hotel Owners Association (UHOA) to the readership of Africa Outlook.
In this month’s edition Africa outlook is shining a light on the tourism and travel business industry in Kampala.
This couldn’t have come at a better time when Uganda is basking in the glory of international accolades from being named the best travel destination by Lonely Planet magazine in 2012 as well as one of the 20 mustsee destinations of 2013 by National Geographic magazine. This year in 2017, CNN named Uganda as the fifth best destination in the World.
The beauty of Uganda is unrivalled and it’s no wonder that Sir Winston Churchill named it the “Pearl of Africa”.
Kampala is the heart of Uganda, the capital city and the centre of business industry. Kampala is also a key tourism destination in Uganda. It is one of the safest cities in Africa, as well as the nightlife capital of East Africa. Kampala is blessed with a host of five-star hotels as well as five-star restaurants. Guests to Kampala will enjoy our natural and organic cuisine in any of our five-star establishments or they could choose to enjoy our famous “Rolex” street food. Kampala is a city that is very welcoming. Ugandans are the friendliest people on the African continent.
I have no doubt that the readers of Africa Outlook will be very impressed by what we have to offer as a tourism and business destination.
We are very honoured to have the opportunity to showcase our beautiful country and town to the readers of Africa Outlook. We have beautiful five-star hotels that are ready to cater to all travellers of different tastes, preferences and budgets.
We are ready to welcome you all!! Karibu.
