Rwenzori Art Centre

Perfectly located in the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains lies Rwenzori Arts Centre, Sculpture Gallery and Coffee Bar. The centre is conveniently placed just off the main road between Queen Elizabeth National Park and Fort Portal, only 11km from Kasese.This spectacular award-winning complex sits in harmony with its restored natural landscape; the coffee bar terrace offers a comfortable place to relax and enjoy panoramic views of the Mountains of the Moon.Visitors are treated to a stunning display of works cast in the adjacent foundry by talented local craftsmen. Pure white Ugandan marble carvings rub shoulders with soapstone and bronze sculptures. Specially commissioned, a series of over 30 Clan Totem animals in bronze are also permanently on show. Capturing the magnificence of iconic species such as Elephant, Colobus and Hippo, the series includes more elusive creatures like the Pangolin and the Otter.These remarkable works come about through exchange projects between artists in Africa and Europe and are inspired by the people, culture, wildlife and beauty of Uganda and make the perfect memento to mark an unforgettable journey. All works are for sale and can be shipped on request.Depending on availability, it may be possible to tour the workshops for a modest $5 donation to Ruwenzori Sculpture Foundation which supports Rwenzori Founders and many other cultural projects in Uganda.We look forward to welcoming you.

This art center is also a foundry. They specialize in making amazing (small and big) sculptures in bronze and have some on display. The location is very peaceful and clean. Staff is knowledgeable and kind. Spent two hours visiting and talking with them. Worth a visit.

Bafrika Creationz

Reviewed By 65KatieM

We were so glad to come across Bafrika Creationz totally by accident! Michael is very talented and produces jaw dropping art pieces inspired by African culture and nature. The high quality of his work reflects the fixed prices but we considered them fair - would not recommend visitors expect to haggle like in the nearby markets. Expect unique, inspirational and high quality pieces of art at a fraction of the cost in the west. Also they take card and will wrap your piece very carefully to travel home. Writing this from the airport, the flight attendants allow travelling with it as part of hand luggage!

The vibrancy of Kampala plays with all of your senses and, Gallery Antique curated by Joe and his staff, does not disappoint. Joe has masterfully acquired hundreds of authentic antique art pieces from the region and use the entire property to tastefully pepper the compound with artwork. You can find antique shields made of hippos hides, ceremonial masks, head rests, tapestries and many more. Most rewarding and beneficial is the wealth of knowledge and eye for detail which Joe effortless possess, is unparalleled. When in Kampala a visit to Gallery Antique is a must and ask to see Joe’s personal treasures. That’s the cherry on top.

Entebbe Crafts Village

Reviewed By ivoryrainbow

I spent my last day in Uganda in Entebbe spending a good amount of time in the morning exploring several craft markets located onthe main road leading to the airport. Compared to the market in Kampala, I must say it was a little more relaxing and the price was marginally cheaper. In Kampala, you really have to spend long time to really figure out about the true price for items and likely the sellers would start out at higher price tag before you negotiate down but in Entebbe I found their starting price for the similar items isn't as high as Kampala. The size of each market might be smaller than one in Kampala and there are about 4~5 different sections you either walk or take a boda(motorcycle taxi, each ride for 2000~3000) to hop from one place to another.
