I definitely recommend you to visit it. Even if you don't have a good guide, you will still have excellent panoramic views from the top.

We went to the mosque on advice from travelers we met on the way. The view from the minaret is amazing, our guide gave us a good overview of the mosque's history and the city structure and history. An absolute must visit when in Kampala!
