  • Description


    Our Backpackers is striving to become fully self sustainable, Eco friendly and to create awareness with art, murals and events. We are looking for happy go people who have a passion to help us!

    We are located in a peaceful residential area in Kampala, the capital city of Uganda. We have several dorms and private rooms as well a big kitchen and a nice chunk of land that is our garden. We are trying to come up with ways, to make our garden more attractive.

    Our goal is to create awareness about environmental and social issues that are relevant NOW! and in the future. We want to show the world what you can do with what most people consider trash. (Upcycling) and to become the best urban hostel in East Africa.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Kampala and Uganda is home to amazing sceneries, people and culture. Here we hired a manager who has traveled extensively all around East Africa and he can tell you exactly where you would want to go and how much something like that would cost.

    If you prefer to stay in Kampala, We do host some outings when something special is happening. maybe you want to see the National football team of Uganda play? Maybe you want to visit a rave or festival, maybe you want to hike or visit the second biggest fresh water lake in the world? When there is time and work is done, There are plenty of options of things to do, and we are happy to tell you about them or even join you!
