As the biggest man-made lake in Uganda dug during the reign of Ssekabaka Mwanga II in 1885, the Kabaka’s lake attracts a number of tourists anxious to even see the beautiful birds at its shores.
The Royal Heritage trail comprises of Bulange (Parliament), Twekobe (Palace), Kabakas, Lakes, Namasole (King’s Maama) and Kasubi Tombs (cemetery for the kingdom) which are the most important in the kingdom of Buganda.
