Tour Overview

Entanda cultural center is a community-based initiative located in Kijjude village in Mityana. With the aim of preservation of nature and culture, the Baganda people of this community devised ways to do both whilst being able to maintain their authenticity. On this excursion, we will be able to participate some of these traditional activities like hunting, food preparation, “senga” and “kojja” talks that are given to their children when they get to adulthood. We will be treated to a fruit buffet which is out together from locally grown fruits in season at the time. We will also be served with locally produced food and honey. Then we will be entertained with traditional music, dance and drama.
