Kyampisi Backpackers Home provides a strong sense of family for international travelers, missionaries, and volunteers during their stay in Uganda. Friendships forged here regularly last a lifetime. Our accommodation is the perfect spot to unwind after a day of adventures and experiences.
Located in a humble neighborhood just a few meters away from Kalagi town, we have nestled away from all the noise of the big city, but close enough to ‘quickly’ get you back to downtown to sightsee or party at the pubs and clubs until the birds are chirping.
We are just about a 20-minute drive from Mukono town on an all-weather tarmac road. In Kalagi, the road from Mukono forms a T-junction with the road from Kampala to Kayunga. Mukono the nearest major town is a rapidly expanding city about 45 minutes from Kampala and 60 minutes away from Jinja town- the adventure capital of East Africa.
Kyampisi Backpackers Home primarily hosts volunteers working with Ssamba Foundation, but other travelers and tourists are also very welcome to stay. For volunteers, it is a place to relax after the intense experiences of the day, a place to chat, rest, watch TV or go for a walk around the neighborhood.
Popular Trips & Activities from the Home:
From the home, we can help arrange trips and expeditions around the country. These include wildlife safaris, hiking, white water rafting, horse-riding, fishing trips, mountain bike tours, etc. While our community tours, wildlife safaris, and community development volunteer projects provide authentic, one-of-a-kind cultural experiences, it’s still nice to know that you can retreat to our comfortable living room or rooftop bar to watch English movies, Skype your friends and family, and surf the Internet in your free time.
