Went there several times in the past and always loved it. Great place for a stop on your way to Western Uganda that you should not miss. Especially the chapti chips are super tasty.

Interesting place wtih curio shops, charity shops, and a cafe which serves excellent coffee shakes and samoes. Probably some of the best fast food I had eaten! Definitely worth a stop to sample local produce.

Many good eating places gift shops and watch the water going around in both directions! For those who are interested there is a shop there for a school that is a little way off the road "Child Africa" well worth a visit.
