Uganda is a home of amazing cultural tours, here you will experience a lot in Uganda’s cultural tours. As Uganda has over 54 tribes, from different corners, and with different cultural activities and the behaviors.
In all these tribes, Buganda is the largest tribe with the biggest size, The Baganda, who populate the northern shore of Lake Victoria, constitute the largest single ethnic group in Uganda, making up about 17% of the total population. The Basogo 8%; the Iteso 8%; and the Langi 6%. Perhaps 6% of the population (not counting refugees) is of Rwandan descent, either Tutsi or Hutu.
A few years ago, New vision carried out research on a total of 248 people asking them which tribe in Uganda is the most Romantic. Surprisingly, respondents overwhelmingly gave this crown to Baganda, followed by Batoro and then Banyankole. But women voted for the Acholi for the third position instead.
Other tribes include the bagisu, Acholi, and others found in eastern Uganda. However in this article, we are much interested in the #Kigezi culture,
