Kololo is an upscale residential and commercial neighborhood on the hill and is close to Kampala capital city center. Kololo got its name from the 19th century from Acholi Chief Awich, from Northern Uganda who resisted British rule and was arrested and brought to Kampala. He was then incarcerated on top of Kololo Hill, where it is alleged that he cried out in Luo, “An atye kany kololo”, which means “I am here alone.” Awich was lamenting over the fact that he had been left alone in the wilderness, miles away from home. His captors and the Baganda started calling the location and the hill "Kololo", resulting in its name today! Join us as we take a walk through the green vegetation of the area and as we look at different developments in the area from way back in 1950's including over a dozen embassies (i.e. Algeria, Egypt, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Russia, North Korea, DRC, China & others), ambassadors' residences, hotels, banks, hospitals and entertainment places like bars as well as fancy apartments and homes. We will also get sight of the Kololo Airstrip where the Elected President Y.K.T. Museveni and some members of Parliament of the 11th Parliament were sworn in. You just can't miss a single day of this tour! Don't forget, Noah will guide us in International Sign Language and Rosemary in English. See you there.
At Infinity Ideas Network, we envision to create and make available equal job opportunities for Deaf and Disabled young people for their sustainable social and economic standards of living. WHY DEAF? In Uganda, they are among the most stigmatized people who often live in isolation and are excluded with from their communities, from the education system, healthcare and other vital services. Most times they are hidden away by their families as they consider this as a bad omen. If you would like to contact us then please feel free to send an email to email@example.com.

This was an interesting and enjoyable tour. I love Rosemary's warmth and laughter! I would have enjoyed also hearing a bit about the history and background of the neighborhood that was mentioned in the tour description.
