How to find Us

Please note: The pronunciation of Kamwokya is Kam-Oh-Cha. This will save you a lot of hassle.

If you’re traveling by matatu, from the New Taxi Park take a matatu to Kamwokya (direction Ntinda) and get out at City Oil Kamwokya (the matatu conductor will show you). The journey costs 1,000 UGX (40¢). We are about 3mins walk from City Oil, near Iguanas. If you’re lost head to Iguanas and ask the motorcycle guys outside.

If you’re traveling by boda boda motorcycle, tell the driver to take you to Kisementi, Iguanas or Acacia Mall. We are 2mins walk from the square. From the city centre if you’ve got a big bag the bodas will charge you around 5,000 UGX ($2). If you’re struggling to explain where you want to go, try saying City Oil Kamwokya.

If you’re traveling by taxi/special hire, give the same instructions as for a boda. Expect to pay somewhere around 20,000 UGX ($8) from town, and about 100,000 UGX ($40) from Entebbe Airport. If you want us to arrange airport transfers for you, we’d be happy to do so, just let us know when you are booking!
