This is an exceptional place where you can enjoy your dance, traditional experience. If you travel at afternoon then you can have a quick round and then attend 0600 to 0900pm cultural show on selected days.

Well paced three hour evening of the most energetic dancing and drumming I have ever seen. A great overview of Uganda's cultural diversity.

The director/MC each night has been telling these jokes for too many years, but this is a professional choreograph show. Take lots of fotos, but eat before you go. Food prices are greatly exaggerated.

Wow, wow, wow! The dancing here was spectacular. They provided a glimpse into the many tribes of Uganda and enabled us to learn more about the intriguing cultures. The dancers were amazing and the customs were equally excellent. The performance last at least 2.5 hours and included a buffet dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and highly recommend you visit... More

Our friends who are from Kampala marked this as a must do and I couldn't agree more. Be sure to get there early so you can get excellent seating as I believe its first come, first serve. The food was average, not great, not terrible and, at least for the buffet, when the refreshing of the hot trays happens, you... More

A visit to Kampala is absolutely incomplete without a night at the Ndere Centre - except you're totally impervious to the beauty of cultural entertainment. We had a great evening of graceful and energetic dancing, cultural music, good food, while the owner Mr. Stephen Rwangyeri doubled as MC and kept us reeling with laughter. It is indeed a great place... More
