Traditional Crafts of Uganda
We stock a variety of beautiful Ugandan hand crafts for sale, all of which have been made by local women. All proceeds go directly to these women and therefore your purchases helps to support our local community.
Explore one of the largest village markets in Uganda situated just 2 km from the Nature Reserve; the weekly market days (Mondays and Thursdays) sell an abundance of quality food, drink, clothes and local crafts.
Why not explore the surrounding area and its abundant crater lakes by bicycle. Alternatively, explore a bit further afield on a motorbike (hire is subject to availability, please ask staff for details).
Lake Nkuruba Nature Reserve offers you a wide range of activities to further enjoy your stay with us. Explore the natural beauty of this region by taking a Guided Walk with our tourist guides visiting crater lakes, the Mahoma waterfall or the stunning 'Top of the World' viewpoint. Visit one of the largest village markets in Uganda, just 2 km away from our site, or book a cultural homestay with a local family to experience our traditional Ugandan culture.
Alternatively, rest within our Nature Reserve, sit back and relax. Watch the monkeys eating, grooming and chasing each other in the trees, enjoy cultural dance performances from our Nkuruba Development Youth Group, or buy some traditional Ugandan crafts and support the women in our local community.
Cultural Dance Performance
Enjoy cultural dance performances from the talented Nkuruba Development Youth Group. The group is supported by our project and performs within the grounds of the Nature Reserve. They perform for our guests every Saturday and Sunday from around 2pm - 4pm. Please come along, enjoy the show and support our local talented youth.
Please do let us know if you would like to book a performance outside of the times noted above and we'll arrange this for you. A two hour performance from Nkuruba Development Youth Group costs 100,000 Ush. Proceeds are used to support the group to allow them to perform in competitions and to support their education.
