Kampala is an exciting city for shoppers


Kampala is an exciting city for shoppers as everything you may need is readily available. Trendy styles from various fashion capitals of the world, groceries, electronics, households, gifts and more. Most shopping in Kampala is concentrated in shopping malls and upmarket large chain supermarkets and shopping centres.

You can have an interesting mix of old and new, African and Western, sophisticated and basic when it comes to shopping in Kampala. In parts of the city, there are markets and a few minutes away you can find a towering office block and a shopping complex offering designer labels and high tech computing equipment. The range of goods available is the widest on offer in Uganda so if you need anything specialist or luxury it’s always best to purchase it whilst in Kampala rather than hope to find it elsewhere. For Ugandan products and essentials such as vegetables and fruit, it’s not worth visiting the more expensive western style shops, as the prices will be higher and the goods will have been sourced locally anyway.

Plenty of modern and ‘western’ style shops exist in purpose built complexes such as Garden City, Nakumatt, Forest Mall, Lugogo Mall that are designed with richer Ugandans and foreign visitors in mind. They all have the feel and atmosphere of typical western shopping malls, with a mix of supermarkets, luxury goods and fast food outlets. If you want luxury goods, especially European and American brands, then the following malls are probably your best bet if you like to do all you’re shopping in one place.
