Top movies filmed in Uganda.

On Friday 4th March 2016, the Le Grand Jour film was premiered in Uganda at Century Cinemax, Acacia Mall. What makes this film special to Ugandans is the fact that some of the parts of the film were shot in Uganda with some rare scenic views such as those of Queen Elizabeth National Park.

What may not be known to many is the fact that Uganda has always been a top prospect with amazing locations for shooting movies.

Several blockbuster movies have been shot in the country over the years and these have not only promoted the country as wonderful for filming movies but have also gone on to showcase to the world the beauty of the Peal of Africa.

 

 

The listing below is a compilation of some of the major films that were shot in Uganda, so that we can appreciate where the country is coming from and where it is heading in as far as the movie industry is concerned in promoting the country.

8 things to look out for in a well packaged community tour in Uganda.

Community tourism offers some of the best moments one could ever experience in Uganda especially if it is well planned and packaged. This unique and exciting tourism product is fairly new and just starting to take root in Uganda. Previously, a few community tourism activities would be included on itineraries but as subsidiaries.

Today, community tourism in Uganda has grown into a complete product and standalone community tourism packages are being organized sold to tourists. However, many tourists still find a challenge in gauging and evaluating a good community tour package in Uganda and this position is worsened by the fact that the product is fairly new and its definition and description may vary from individual to individual or community to community.

Uganda Tourism Hub hereby brings you the perimeters and attributes that a tourist should lookout for in a well packed community tour in Uganda.
