ACTIVITIES AROUND KASESE

Kasese is not known for being a tourist destination but we have still a wide range of different activities to do while staying in town. From our guesthouse, Blue Agama, you can walk to most attractions in central Kasese. Our local guides can take you around or we can help with arranging different activities by yourself.

Walk around Kasese Town

A guided tour around town, where you get to explore local markets, schools, and religious buildings. The tour can be tailored to meet your interests.

Kasese tour (organic farming and hot spring)

The Kasese tour will take you around in, and nearby, Kasese town. Visit a local farm located in the Rwenzori mountains, with beautiful views of the lowlands and Lake George. You will learn about the farming routines, and even try to do some simple activities yourself. In town, you will visit a school and other places of interest. By the end of the day you will get some time to rest in the hot springs, or in the river from the Rwenzori glaciers.
