Culture (Batwa)

Visit a village to meet the vibrant people of Uganda

The culture of Uganda is absolutely fascinating, in no small part because of its diversity. You could spend a lifetime studying just the languages, let alone the religions and art.

Broadly speaking, the Lango and Acholi people dominate the north, and the Iteso and Karamojong inhabit the west. The fascinating Batwa people continue their ancient traditions in the heart of the rainforests. Luganda is the most widely spoken language, followed by Swahili and English.
 
In Kampala, you can watch vibrant performances at the Uganda National Cultural Centre and at the Uganda National Contemporary Ballet, both of which are nationally recognised venues. To experience day to day Ugandan life, spending time in local villages is a superb way to learn from the locals. From Mahinga Lodge, you can walk or bike to a nearby Bahima homestead to learn about agriculture and fishing. Indigenous communities at Mweya Safari Lodge in Queen Elizabeth National Park will come to greet you, keen to exhibit their traditional costumes, rituals, and dance.
