Kasubi Tombs

September 15, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

About the tour

At its core on the hilltop is the former palace of the Kabakas of Buganda, built in 1882 and converted into the royal burial ground in 1884. The Royal Tombs at Kasubi are located on 30 hectares of traditionally-farmed agricultural hillside . They are the final resting places of the last four Kabakas (kings) of the 700-year old Buganda Kingdom; Muteesa I, Mwanga II, Daudi Chwa II, and Sir Edward Muteesa II. On 16 March 2010, at about 8.30 pm local time, the Kasubi tombs were destroyed by fire and the cause of the fire is as yet unknown! Join us as we tour the Royal tombs, and learn more about the history, culture and norms of the powerful Buganda Kingdom. You cannot miss the story about the vexatious fires. This tour will be guided in International Signs by Noah as well as in English by Rosemary!
