Masaka for the weekend

Masaka is one destination that is constantly overlooked when planning a holiday in Uganda. Just two hours away from Kampala, this small town could be just what the doctor ordered for your weekend away. Masaka is where you can enjoy a quiet, slow paced weekend to recharge.

Community tourism

If you are a responsible traveler, Masaka is the place to be. There are a number of community trail walks and market visits where you can see the people of Central Uganda up close. There are various community initiatives that you can volunteer at or donate to for example the Uganda Child Care home.

Water sports

If you are looking for some fun in the sun, the ideal place is Lake Nabugabo Holiday and Conference centre. Right on the shores of the lake, other than amazing views you can indulge in activities like sports fishing, camping, swimming, guided bird-watching tours, canoe and boat rides between islands on the lake. For the lone adventurer, canoes are available for rent for a maximum of $10. To book a weekend at Lake Nabugabo, simply go online to and enjoy the best price guarantee.


For travellers looking for a peek into the industry which is the backbone of Uganda’s economy or if you have an itchy green thumb, Masaka is the place to be. Most farms here offer tours and tutorials on how to tend to banana plantations and how to manage their zero grazing. A little time spent on a farm gives one a greater appreciation for food and the journey it takes before getting to your plate.

Cultural experience

There are a number of theatre groups that put on regular and rich cultural performances from the Ganda people of Masaka. Performances range from dances to captivating storytelling which is perfect around a bonfire after a long day of exploring. If you love to shop, Masaka town has a number of curio and souvenir shops.


If you are looking to catch a spectacular view, at Sitatunga Corner, just outside of Masaka town, you can enjoy the perfect scenery of the Nabajuzzi Papyrus Wetlands. Great for a picnic as you watch the sun go down.
