Igongo Cultural Centre (Mbarara – Lake Mburo National Park)

Igongo Cultural Center was launched in 2011 with the establishment of the Ankole region cultural museum, with the objective to document and preserve the cultural heritage of South-Western Uganda. The museum has several sections including ancient and modern history of South-Western Uganda to present, cultures of the people, traditional skills and handicraft.
More recently, the Centre also organize experiential tourism, with tours to the neighboring farmers’ communities. You will drive to the local farm and the farmers will show you several activities related to the cows keeping, like watering cows, milking cows and cow ghee production. This can take about 2 to three hours starting from Igongo.
