The drum and dance show lasts over 3 hours containing the tribal dances of Uganda and neighboring countries. The founder of the show - who is the speaker - is a funny man introducing briefly the dances and instruments. The buffet food is tasty, plenty...More

Great place for exploring Ugandan folk culture and the incredible Ndere Troupe. Place also serves as a rented venue for parties with the privilege to have it's folk dancers perform at your event.

Stayed here one night. A bit out of the centre but in the pleasant Ntinda part of town. You can get around using apps like Uber/Safe Boda. Or just grab a boda boda and take the risk re Kampala traffic! Rooms are clean. Bed comfy,...More

A stunning show opted by a spectacular parade of drummers balancing and playing enormous drums not their heads. A must see.

This place is always fun for my kids. They however have terrible food and sometimes the service is lacking. We now mainly go for the show even though we used to go for dinner and entertainment

Amazing singers and dancers, but the old guy who owns the place insists on being the star of the show. He kills a lot of time doing things that are silly and immature, or telling stories that are sometimes crude. The show is really a...More

Sorry, I don't remember specifically. It was reasonable, though, and the show is well worth it. I wouldn't buy the whole dinner meal, though. The food wasn't great. There are drinks available.

Hi, Sorry, we were transported by our hosts, and didn't have to worry about that. I have taken cabs in Kampala a few times and the costs were reasonable. The Ndere centre is within the city of Kampala, so it's not too far.

I'm sorry, I don't know what the difference is. I have been there twice, and both times I would say the show was kid-friendly. As a matter of fact, some of the owner's antics are quite childish......
