Culture is a complex feature defining the character of a society through art, values, traditions and beliefs. Uganda is endowed with 56 indigenous communities each with a distinct cultural heritage built over the generations. Notably, Toro Kingdom, Bunyoro Kingdom, Buganda Kingdom and Busoga Kingdom others too, have a strong and rich history that has distinctly defined them throughout the years, which can be promoted as tourist attractions.

The Cultural Heritage of our Kingdom and communities has with time developed unique differences such as diversity of languages and behaviors, all of which are rich in prose and poetry and carry a lot of the oral history of our people. Music dance and drama are other products of this diversity. Our dances are all entertaining and educative with a reflection of our ways of life. The Art and Crafts, mats, baskets, batiks and drums and some of the world.

The people of Uganda have passed on their culture such as beliefs, traditions and values to generations, which are appreciated by most of the visitors that came to Uganda, for example the legendary hospitality of the Uganda people is an attribute passed on through the traditional and cultural values.

Despite being one of the smallest amongst the African countries, Uganda still offers some of the best known opportunities to experience the African culture.
