Located just 5km north-west of Kampala are the Kasubi Tombs, a UNESCO world heritage site. Most Kampala city tours cannot end without visiting the Kasubi Tombs! The tombs can be accessed on both organized tours and self guided tours.

If you are an independent traveler, you just need a map and hit the road. The tombs are located along the Hoima road in a small town called Kasubi.  There is proper signage directing you to the tombs.
