PHOTOS Kampala’s People and Places. An African Safari Part 2

For Bruce Marais and his travel companions, Kampala was a colourful chaos, and his photographs vividly show it. In the second part of SAPeople’s series on Bruce’s 10-country journey, he focuses on the Ugandan capital. “Some good news from East Africa,” he writes from the road. “They have a growing economy, it’s a safe place with incredible people, beautiful sights and so much to discover.”

“Downtown Kampala is as crazy as it gets.” “Uganda is great for adventurous people: it’s high energy, crazy busy, organized chaos but very safe.”

“Ugandan Parliament. The police were so nice to let us in to take a pic.”

“Looks like a lime, inside it looks like an orange but tastes like a lemon.”
