Wedding Cakes in Uganda: All You Need to Know

Wedding Cakes in Uganda

Cakes are big business in Kampala and the definitive article at ceremonies. Not just for those who make them, but also for those who consume them. There are those who believe regardless of the ceremony, be it a graduation or birthday party, the cake must be glamorous or else there will be whispers in the corridors about how one is a cheapskate.

Kampala weekends offer the observer an opportunity to see how the denizens want their cakes to appear. It is about groups making countless trips to confectioners or window-shopping for the next big mukolo (party). There are inquiries about size of party, how many guests do you expect at your wedding, when shall it be held, do you want to keep for only two weeks or do you want to store it in the freezer for many months?

For Susan Gumisiriza, proprietor of Delicacies Limited in Lweza, cake making is a full-time business. “I am involved in other pursuits like interior design, but the cakes take most of my time,” she says. Gumisiriza says she is always making one cake or more on any given day.

Kampala’s brides also tend to want their cakes in an assortment of shapes. This trend is seen more with introduction cakes. The introduction is known as Kwanjula in Central Uganda and Kuhingira in the West. This is largely considered the most important part of the marriage ceremony because that is when the two families formally make a pact for the bride and groom. Introductions are where bride price and parents’ signatures are exchanged. All this requires that the cake be as symbolic as possible.

“I have been asked to make cakes in the shape of the local traditional earthenware pots (common in rural Uganda), but most of those orders have come in for the pre-wedding introduction ceremony,” Gumisirza says. “At the introduction, I have been asked to make cakes in the shape of a saucepan on three stones, symbolizing the traditional role of the woman in the home. It means the bride is ready to take on her role as the homemaker. Since the attention is on the cake for its central position at parties, it is considered the most important statement be represented in it.”

Winnie Bagonza, another confectioner of considerable experience, expresses the same sentiment. Bagonza, though not very active today, says she made cakes for many Ugandans who wanted different aspects of their lives expressed in the cakes they would serve at their weddings. “It is not surprising for a bride to come around asking for a cake in the shape of a car or a house; if that’s what they want, regardless of the cost, we made them,” she recalls.

Word about cakes gets around fast. For Gumisirza, it has been word-of-mouth that has got her the business. Since her practice is only starting out, she says all she does is give out her number to interested people who then recommend her. “When I make a cake, I do it knowing my next job will depend on how well I satisfy my clients,” she notes.

Cake makers are busiest at the end of the year in Kampala. From October to December, there are many weddings and graduation parties, according to those in the business. “Even birthday parties seem to increase around this period,” Peruth Mulindwa of Devine Cakes says.

Gumisiriza says she makes deliveries on order, though she will do it as part of the package depending on the size of the job. “For big cakes, I will drive out to the function and handle the preparation,” says. This is in part to prevent spoilage by people who might not know how to handle a large expensive work of art.

Even when prices of raw materials go up, Gumisiriza says she has to keep within the range of prices that her customers are used to. Any erratic price hikes and she knows she might lose her clientele. “I charge 50,000 UGX or 80,000 UGX for the very small cakes but I can also make cakes for prices ranging from 120,000 UGX to 160,000 UGX,” she says. In any case, there are many people in the business seeing as the demand in Kampala is as constant as it’s love for parties.

An Insight Into Ugandan Traditional Weddings

0
Buganda Wedding

Every tribe has a unique culture and this applies especially to the traditional Ugandan weddings of each. Here’s an insider’s look at the unique traditional wedding ceremonies of the Acholi and the Baganda.

Acholi Culture

In the Acholi culture, the traditional wedding takes two days. The first day is occupied with cooking as the bride-to-be and her family spend hours cooking and decorating the compound. The action begins in the night with the arrival of the groom and his entourage. He finds the compound dark and he and his entourage are required to bring along a couple of lamps to ‘light the way’. When he gets to the house of his intended bride, he is not allowed to enter it standing up right. He and his company must enter the house on their knees. They have come to ask for a young lady’s hand in marriage after all!

During this entrance and negotiations, the bride is seated with her entourage in a corner of the house in view of her suitor. She does have contact with him while the negotiations are going on with her elders.

After the negotiations have been successful the lights will be put on and the real celebrations begin. All the preparations of the day will pay off as everyone- the hosts and the guests – enjoy the meal that has been prepared. These parties can go on until the next morning even after the groom and his party has left. The bride remains behind as the ceremony continues the next day.

At around midday the following day, the groom and his party will come back to publicly and officially claim his bride. The bride is no longer in hiding as she and her entourage will be paraded before her suitor so he can confirm this is who he paid for the night before. Only then will she be handed over to him as his wife.

Baganda Wedding

The Baganda traditional weddings, on the other hand, start with the parading of the bride-to-be. After the groom has identified his bride then negotiations may begin. In this culture however, the groom does not participate in negotiating the bride price. His elders will finalise the negotiations and he will be informed that he has been accepted only after it is done.

 

One similarity in both tribes is the bride’s wardrobe changes. She can wear as many different outfits as she wants but mostly changes each time she comes out to meet with her guests. While changing outfit is not mandatory it is preferred in both tribes and gives the bride-to-be and her family a sense of pride and chance to show off her beauty. Some brides may change outfits up to five times, while others may choose not to change at all. Some brides also require their entourage to change but other do not.

The end result in both cultures is a grand feast after successful negotiation. At times, the negotiations are unsuccessful and the groom and his entourage have to leave without his sobbing bride. This is rare and only happens as a result of miscommunication at the outset. Usually, there is negotiation between the families related to the bride price prior to the actual ceremony in order to make sure that both parties are well prepared. Failure to reach an understanding during the traditional ceremony is like a modern wedding being stopped half way through right before the couple can be pronounced husband and wife!

Uganda Reptile Village: See Uganda’s Snakes Up Close

0
Uganda Reptile Village

One of the most intriguing signs along Entebbe road is the one directing you to the Snake Park at Kitende.  In a country where snakes are widely feared, who would seriously consider devoting an entire park to them?

The park is located not far beyond Kajjansi, if you’re coming from Kampala, and you’ll see the sign on your left directing you down a dirt road.  While the signs indicate the park being just a few km off the main road it seems longer as the marram road is rough and you would be justified in wondering whether you are going look for snakes in the bush. However, when you reach the end of the road you will be rewarded by arriving at the purpose-built, conservation enclosure for snakes.

The park is open Monday – Sunday from 8am to 6:30pm but the two staff who greeted us seemed surprised by the arrival of visitors on a Saturday morning. Entrance fee is 3,000 for Ugandans and 15,000 for foreign tourists – there is no foreign resident’s rate.

The first impression is that the park is well organised. It is small, but pleasantly arranged with neat stone pathways which wind around banda-style structures with large viewing windows. Each of these contains a different species of snake. The buildings could do with some refurbishing  this doesn’t detract from coming face to face with some impressive snakes. Not all of the snake houses were full at the time of our visit, suggesting that they are still in the process of building up their conservation stock. The reptiles themselves are picked up from all over Uganda, and caringly looked after. The guides are extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and will happily talk for hours about the snakes entertaining your children with stories about these man-eating reptiles.

For those of you expecting excitement and danger as you interact with lethally venomous animals, you may be disappointed – the brick snake houses are extremely secure. This will, of course, come as a relief if you are interested in using a visit to overcome a fear of snakes.  The snakes themselves are not natural entertainers, often content to lie, infuriatingly camouflaged on branches and in corners. The most action you’re likely to see is at feeding time when they munch on day-old chicks.

While there is children’s play area it is aging and there are no places to eat and drink nearby. So, while it might be a nice, informative diversion between Entebbe and Kampala the Snake Park more of a place to visit briefly than to linger. If you do intend to make a day out of it, it could be combined with the Wildlife Education Centre, or a picnic in the Botanical Gardens.

You should give the Snake Park a try if you have exhausted the limited range of kids’ activities in Kampala/Entebbe or want to learn about an array of Uganda’s snakes from a safe distance.

Food: All About The Almighty Ugandan Rolex

All About the Ugandan Rolex

When you mention the word ‘rolex’ anywhere in Uganda the last thing that will come to mind will be the Rolex watch. Rolex, in Kampala especially, refers to a chapati that has been rolled with eggs and vegetables inside of it.

While every chapatti seller in Uganda would love to take credit for inventing the Ugandan Rolex, it actually originated in Wandegeya, just below the Makerere University campus. The students wanted a meal that was affordable, yet filling, so chapatti sellers experimented with filling a chapatti with eggs. The name rolex came from ‘rolling’ (pronounced ‘lolling’ by many of the chapatti makers as a result of the heavy Luganda accent). They also pronounce it as ‘lolex’ but everyone understands what you want no matter how you pronounce, ‘rolex’.

A rolex always consists of egg and chapatti as the major ingredients but from there every rolex seller will get as creative as you allow them to be. Some make a plain egg rolex, while others will add onions, tomatoes, sliced cabbage and if you really want a king-size rolex…some pieces of meat before it’s all rolled up. Rolexes aren’t limited to Wandegeya – you can find them pretty much anywhere chapatti is sold at all times of day but especially around meal time hours.

Speaking to Mukasa, a chapatti seller in Namuwongo, he says he uses two packs of baking flour and two trays of eggs daily to satisfy his customers. “If I use one egg in the rolex then it is 2000/= but if I use two, then it becomes 2500/=,” he says. He sells plain chapattis at 1000 UGX, so a rolex does increase the price.

How much money does he make from his rolex and chapatti business? “I make up to 15,000/= daily and I have managed to start building a small house at home in my village. Mukasa is married with a small son and he manages to look after his family with his small rolex business. It was not easy for him though when he started, “Getting new customers and a good place to sell is not easy but when then taste my rolex they keep coming back for more.”

Mukasa has built a rapport with his customers so much that they book rolex’s in advance and can even pay later. His best customers are the boda boda men at the stage where he sells his food and school children as they come and go to school. He also sells to house wives and housemaids who stay at home and are not in the mood to cook the lunch hour meal. These he says are the best customers because they buy more than one at a time.

If you are not in the mood to buy a rolex by the road side, you can make one at you own in the comfort of your own home.

Ingredients you would need per rolex;

  • 1-2 eggs
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 chapati
  • small handful shredded cabbage
  • 3-4 thin slices of tomato
  • cooking oil

You can also add the following depending on your taste buds;

  • A slice of cheese
  • A few pieces of meat or chicken
  • Thinly sliced green pepper
  • Add a pinch of black pepper to taste

Directions; Fry the eggs with all the ingredients in a frying pan and place on a pre-cooked chapatti. Then roll and serve hot. Eggs and other ingredients vary depending on how big or small you would like the meal to be. Enjoy!

Go Gorilla Trekking in Mgahinga National Park

0
Mgahinga Volcanoes

Uganda the pearl of Africa is blessed with half of the total mountain gorillas living in the whole world and the mountain gorillas in Uganda can be watched or viewed in the two national parks of Bwindi and Mgahinga national park. Despite the various tourism activities in Mgahinga gorilla national park, gorilla tracking is the most popular adventure taken in the park. Most visitors who visit the park enjoy mountain gorilla trekking in the bamboo forest lands of the park within the habituated gorilla group.

Mgahinga national park has only one gorilla group which can be trekked by visitors who take safaris in Uganda. The name of the gorilla group habituated in the park is the Nyakagezi gorilla family. This gorilla family is identified as “roaming” and “adventurous” because this group keeps on rotating between Uganda, Rwanda, and Congo. However, for the past two years, the gorilla family is currently said to have settled in the Uganda side of Mgahinga national park and hence tourists can easily visit the park to have an encounter with this gorilla family.

Gorilla trekking activities in Mgahinga Gorilla Park begin from Ntebeko Entrance early in the morning (8:00 am). Like other habituated gorilla groups, only a total of 8 tourists are accepted and authorized to visit the Nyakagezi family. Gorilla trekking roughly takes two to four hours of walking and hiking the hills while looking for interesting gorillas. When visitors meet the gorillas, they are allowed to spend only one hour with the gorillas. The interaction between the tourists and the gorillas is minimal given that there is a need to protect the gorillas from human interference. but at distance and the experience one gets from the encounter is unexplainable.

For tourists planning to undertake gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda especially to Mgahinga should be in consideration that the recommendable time for gorilla trekking is mainly during the two dry seasons because during this time the routes are passable and even trekking trails are not slippery and hence visitors can easily move in the forest while searching for the primates. The dry month are Mid-December to the month of February as well as June to October. The only advantage of trekking gorillas in Uganda is that one can do it any time throughout the year.

Participating in gorilla treks in Uganda offers one the chance of understanding the characters of the mountain gorilla. Interesting to know is that each and every day of gorilla starts at 6 am and usually ends in the evening especially 6:00 pm and then they rest waiting for the next day. Gorillas move in social groups and their diet is mainly made up of leaves, shrubs of bamboo forests, roots, flowers among others. Trekking gorillas is more impressive and exciting and hence each visit should plan to visit any gorilla families in Uganda.

From Home of Impalas to Towering Kampala city

Kampala City

Legend traces its story to just before the colonialists set foot here. A little town in central Uganda would flourish into the pivot of the country. Kampala, a city of many tales; thriving and buzzing to the core.

It is believed that it started when the administrators from the United Kingdom (UK) declared this little place a town! Many sought it out as a business center; nearly every public transport on a long root found it’s way to this little town.

But this town was no ordinary town, it had its feet spread out atop seven hills, initially known to be home of an animal called Impala. We will get to the story of the seven hills but first, how it became Kampala. So, a thriving trade, soon various dialects would soon feature and the place that was initially called Ka Impala, to mean, where the Impala are, quickly evolved into Kampala.

Yes, this little known Kampala City attracted just about the right human settlement and thus infrastructural development. In 1949, this rather busy town grew some more; so again, the administration noticed and it was granted a municipality status. But that was not all, in 1962, Uganda attained its autonomy from the UK, and with that victory came something else; a capital city!

The hills

You might have heard the phrase the ‘City of seven hills’, mattered in reference to Kampala, it started out that way. See, in its initial growth stages, Uganda’s Capital city sat on seven hills, you know, now called the historical hills. And no, they bore no fancy names, typically Ugandan; Mulago, Kololo, Kibuli, Rubaga, Namirembe, Makerere and of course Kampala hill itself, now called Old Kampala hill.

Today however, the seven hills have had at least 18 hills curved out them. Interesting, ha? These hills are; Old Kampala, Mengo,  Namirembe, Rubaga, Nakasero,  Kololo, Kibuli,  Nsambya,  Naguru, Mbuya,  Mbuya, Makerere, Mulago, Buziga, Mutundwe,  Mutungo, Kireka,  Makindye, and Banda. Well, if you read closely, you will notice that some of the original hill names still surface that was because the locals chose to keep the names.

And for or a country with about 40 million people, nearly 2 million reside in Kampala alone. Oh, and that is not even inclusive of those that come in for a night or two of party, or purely business. That aside, how about we start with the mode of transportation which has since become an experience to reckon?

Not to forget about the fancy cabs, the motorcycle better known as the boda-boda, is an experience to write home about. These guys will maneuver through anything, to beat the city traffic jam and get you anywhere in a heartbeat. And worry not, these guys will perch together some English, however broken, and chances are, you might be called; manager. Worry not what you are, just go with it, you are in Kampala, a city where you will be called Old man aka muzeyi, by the boda-boda guy.

Interestingly though, that is not even the exciting part; see, the adrenalin rash, you experience as you cling onto a fella that leaves his life on the age, that is the thing! now that is the staff. These fellas leave their lives on the edge, bumping through a couple of potholes, breaking all kind of rules; now that is something else.

But then again, how can we talk Kampala and not talk the Kasubi tombs? See, Kampala city is hosted by a tribe called the Baganda. This tribe has a kingdom called Buganda and whose Kings are laid to rest at the Kasubi tombs. The tombs, a oozing with culture take traditionalism to the next level, complete with thatch and bamboo. If still looking for a bit more history, Kampala City hosts the Uganda Museum, art galleries and even better, the National Theatre, where you will find nothing short of Ugandan entertainment. But before you leave town, you could check-out the Independence monument, a tale of the freedom Uganda gained from then colonial master- Britain.

If architecture is what you are into, then the traditional religious spots like the cathedrals sitting still in some of the original hills will do. Grab a boda-boda, will you? Make your way up old Kampala, to the Namirembe or Rubaga Cathedrals. Or you could might want to check out the luxuriously spaced Gadaffi mosque. There’s so much to see, so much to savor and so many tales to behold.

Obukalabanda: A Tale of Wooden Sandals

Obukalabanda - Wooden Sandals

Years ago, a time when the world was still simple and beautiful, wooden sandals were en vogue. This was a pre-era of today’s Gucci,

Miu Miu and Jimmy Choo’s of this world. An era where shoes were a myth and walking barefoot was a common thing – normal.

People figured that they had to find a way of insulating their feet from the rough ground. Hence, the birth of wooden sandals.

These were sandals made out of wood. They would cut it into a foot-shaped base and design a little ‘anchor’ on which the big toe and index toe would hold. It sounds hectic and uncomfortable, but it was on in-thing. These sandals were fashionable and durable.

They could stand all kinds of weather and all kinds of surface; rough or smooth. They mirrored class and style. If you owned a pair, you belonged to society’s creme. Purists loathed them for their ugly shape, but who minded the shape, anyway? People loved them anyhow. But when civilization knocked on the door, they were wiped off the face of the earth.

Visiting the Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi Forest

Bwindi Mountain Gorilla

Mountain gorillas are subspecies of primate animals called gorillas. Gorillas are the largest great apes left in the world which live in the tropical rain forests of Africa.

Mountain gorillas derive their name from the location and nature of their habitats as these live in the mountain ranges of central east Africa of Virunga that is straddled by Rwanda, Uganda and DR.Congo and the Bwindi Forest of Uganda. These huge primates are endangered species of animals in that if not preserved and conserved well in the forthcoming years they will get extinct. There are about 1000 mountain gorillas left in the world and Bwindi impenetrable national park of Uganda has a half of these amazing primates that is about 420 gorilla individuals in the wild.

Bwindi impenetrable national park is located in the southwestern part of Uganda in the kigezi highlands in Kabale district. Due to the possession of mountain gorillas, this national park has become as famous in the tourism world as thousands of people around the world visit it to watch the gorillas in the wild.

This wonderful biodiversity is protected and managed by the Uganda wildlife authority under the government of Uganda.  By the effort of the Uganda wildlife authority, they found a way of making people know how conserving and  meeting the mountain gorillas is beautiful and important to the world by developing gorilla tourism, an activity where people go to the park to watch and interact with the mountain gorillas in their natural environment from a close range. There are 18 habituated mountain gorilla families in Bwindi impenetrable national park. The most common families visited on primate safaris  include;

  • Buitukura, Oruzogo Kyaguriro and the newly habuated one Bikyingi – three groups in the Ruhija area
  • Mishaya, Nshongi, Kahungye, Busingye and Bweza – five gorilla-groups inthe Rushaga area
  • Nkuringo family and recently dispensed group of Bushaho – two groups in the Nkuringo area
  • Rushegura, Mubare and Habiyanja

One might ask “what are habituated gorillas?” habituated gorillas are gorillas that are tamed so that they can tolerant the presence of mankind at a close range or in other words these are gorillas that can be watched by people who may wish to interact with the gorillas in the wild. Mountain gorillas are found in a group of 2-40 individuals in essence one can never find a gorilla on its own without a partner in the wild.

Gorilla trekking in Bwindi

Gorilla trekking in Bwindi starts with briefing of visitors or gorilla trackers at the head quarters of the park early in the morning and then they are allocated to certain groups comprising of 8 people in accordance to the gorilla family they are going to watch on a day. It should be noted that a certain gorilla family is visited by one group of gorilla in day. These trackers are taken to the start up points where the gorilla patron leads them into the tropical rain forests of Bwindi to interact with the only left mountain gorillas in the wild. During a trek through the forest a gorilla patron narrates stories about the mountain gorillas that mount up the excitement and also the trackers are able to see other wildlife like various bird species, trees and also monkeys. It takes the trackers 2-6 hours to reach the gorillas due to the fact gorillas are nomadic animals that keep moving from one place to another making their tracking very hard. But the long walks are all forgotten when the trackers meet the gorilla face to face since it is such an exhilarating moment. When the trackers meet the gorillas they interact with them by observing the way they feed, play and also communicate and at times the young gorillas come close to trackers with an intention of playing with them. The trackers also take photos of these wonderful animals that are kept are memoirs. We can only give the hints of how it is like to trek the gorilla in Bwindi but the experience is in-explainable as former trackers have had outrageous remarks about gorilla trekking in Bwindi.

When is the Best Time to Visit Bwindi Gorillas

You can visit the mountain gorillas anytime of the year. This is due to that Uganda experiences a favorable climate throughout the year. The weather conditions in Bwindi permit gorilla tracking anytime.

How to Book a Gorilla Tour

So for those who have never tracked the gorillas the time is now book with a local tour operator to go gorilla trekking in Bwindi impenetrable and have a thriller of an experience.

Advice to Make Car Rental Easy

0

Hiring a car can be a daunting and distressful experience. If it’s your first time renting a car for a Uganda safari. Below are some of the tips which can make your experience simpler.

Tips for saving money:

Hire a car online, many car rental agencies are found on the internet and have specials offers

Reserve the vehicle for a long period like 2 weeks to 1 month to stand a chance of getting a discount.

Most car rentals stipulate returning the vehicle with a quarter of a tank. Ensure to abide by this policy to avoid paying a premium fee in the name of equating to the quarter tank you should have left upon returning. Do it yourself, you will save some cash.

How are you going to handle insurance?

In most instances, car rental providers offer comprehensive insurance on their cars. This kind of insurance covers theft, third-party, and collision damage waiver.  Beyond that, the client is liable for damages that may occur on the car, for example, lone accidents, car rollovers, minor scratches, etc.

Therefore, for the client to be fully protected against any damages, they are requested to pay excessive insurance fees which depend on the type of the rental car. The rental operator will try to sell you this kind of insurance coverage which is normally so expensive.

If you have another alternative such as your credit card covering car rental, you are advised to go for that. Inform your credit card operator to activate your car rental insurance so that you can get protected against the damages not covered in the comprehensive insurance offered by the vehicle hire company.

Extra advice

You are unlucky that the rental car you are trying to book is unavailable, looked elsewhere but all in vain? This could be a risky trick, but it is also a chance to exhibit your haggling skills. Go for an upgrade and request it at a reduced price. Wanting a Toyota rav4 and you end up with a land cruiser at just 55$ per day would the greatest bargain of the century.

Ensure that operator has road assistance to come to your rescue in case of a car breakdown in the course of your trip. Emergency numbers should be given to you to call when an issue arises.

The hotline is additionally important in other situations like you have left your belonging at a certain point, you call simply call the operator to help you out to deliver them to where you may be at the time.
