There is no better way to spend your Christmas than going for a trip to one of the most beautiful places in the world. Kabale is undoubtedly an amazing place for every eye to appreciate.
From the stunning scenery characterized by the sprawling hills that would leave any adventurous hiker filled to satisfaction to being the host of Africa's second deepest lake, Lake Bunyonyi, you, Kabale has all your Christmas covered.
A ride around the beautiful lake Bunyonyi gives you a perfect description to the wonder world of God's creative hands. Endowed with 29 islands, each of these craftily positioned and with unique features from the other.
Kabale district is approximately 406km from the capital Kampala and will take you just about 6hours. For all your festive season need, Kabale has you covered;
Church goers; Of course most Christians would love to go to Church on Christmas day to celebrate the birth of the saviour. It is at such places of worship that the real meaning of Christmas carols is brought to life. Various choirs will have sharpened their voices to light up the various fellowships. The rest of the audience always endeavours to represent themselves in their most affordable smartest ways.
Several recognitions are made for key figures that will have left their work places to celebrate the season with their people back home. Some important church projects will be introduced to the mammoth congregation to seek support. Apart from this common practice in most churches, Kabale worship centres will offer an added touch of exception. For the Anglican faith, the place is renowned for the birth of the East African Revival Movement in Uganda. The fruits of this fellowship are still evident up to this day.
Energetic songs of praise in the most adorable kikiga way known as "ekiziino" will not only wow you but give you a worthy encounter.
After church, most Christians will spend close to an hour interacting with each other and for the Kabale edition heartfelt hugs are a must see.
Party animals; There is no place in Western Uganda where partying gets more interesting than Kabale. For the festive season, you cannot tell the difference between a usual bar and a night club since all places will be full beyond capacity with loud desirable music, drinks and excited people in.
Prior to a late evening experience you can opt to visit one of the bushera joints and try out a cup or jug of the famous "enturire" or "muramba" drinks. These two special drinks are brewed better from Kabale than any other place in Uganda. If you ever visit Kabale and leave without tasting them, believe me you will have denied yourself a taste of real African perfection.
From there, if you are a pork lover, try out the various joints for this irresistible delicacy which is found on every corner of Kabale town.
After such an evening, you surely deserve to go to a night club to shake your body since life is too short. In Kabale, whether you wanted to dance or not, the vigour exhibited by the rest of the revellers will leave you with no option but to get up and dance.
At such places, you won't feel any bored and before you realise it, signs of a bright morning are setting in.
Adventure and Outing lovers;
Opt for a boat cruise on Lake Bunyonyi to believe that God took time in creating this lake.
