UGANDA (eTN) – The new offices of the Uganda Tourist Board (UTB), aka Tourism Uganda, have finally moved to their new location in the upscale Kololo suburb on Acacia Avenue, not far from the Protea Kampala Hotel and the Metropole Hotel, after years of hiding in a much criticized basement location.
For many years the supposed showcase for Uganda’s tourism industry was located on the lowest floor of the Impala House on Kimathi Avenue in the city center. The offices were often overlooked, and even when they were found, they gave a rather not too inviting impression to their visitors.
UTB also operates two “window shops” at the Entebbe International Airport’s arrival lounge and the Garden City shopping mall, making contact for arriving tourist visitors easy and simple.
The new premises are now fully operational and open for business – aimed to bring more tourists and commercial visitors to the “Pearl of Africa.”
