Masaka

...

... is the fourth largest town in the country Uganda and is situated around 120km west of Kampala on the main highway to the southwest.

Founded as an Indian trading post circa 1900, the town was badly damaged during the Tanzanian invasion in 1979. It has little to offer the international visitor, being rather scruffy and potholed, but is a colourful and interesting enough place to pass through.

Around 15km to the east of town lies Lake Nabugabo, whose pleasant beaches and apparently bilharzia free waters act as a lure, especially for week-enders from Kampala.


Since the introduction of scheduled light aircraft services between Entebbe and the west of the country, our guests rarely overland through Masaka any more and therefore very rarely ask us to include it in trips.

Here in western Uganda we tend to focus more on areas such as Bwindi Forest, Queen Elizabeth, Kibale Forest and Murchison Falls.
