Uganda’s tourism sector is fast picking up with increased numbers of tourists coming into the country. Global broadcaster CNN ranked Uganda as the fifth best destination in the world putting the East African nation in a good position especially now that energies are being directed at marketing the country to the world.
Domestic tourism is also moving into the right direction especially now that middle income earners in Uganda are fast appreciating their country and beginning to explore it even more. All this is creating a demand for better hotels, restaurants, lodges and leisure places that complete the hospitality industry.
Because of this demand service providers like hotels are left with no choice but to put in place high quality facilities to meet demands of customers. This investment is demand driven. The latest addition to Uganda’s hotel industry is the magnificent Speke Apartments located on Wampewo Avenue, Kololo – Kampala.
