- Mparo Tombs
Located 4 km along the Masindi road, Mparo was chosen as the capital of King Omukama Kabarega of Bunyoro in 1872 where he was interred in 1923. The burial ritual was quite grisly and best described by the guide when visiting the site to more fully imagine the scene at the time. The gravesite includes many of the Kaberega’s personal effects in a dome-like structure made from natural materials similar to the more famous Kasubi Tombs in Kampala.
- Karuzika Royal Palace
The throne room of Bunyoro – Kitara in Hoima is open to visitors by prior arrangement. The throne room includes the traditional nine-legged throne swathed in leopard skins and barkcloth. An array of spears, royal headdresses and musical instruments are on display.
- Katasiha Fort
Situated 2 km from Hoima on the Biso – Butiaba road was the largest fort built by General Colville after the Kabarega abandoned his capital in Mparo in 1893. All that remains today is the 8-meter deep trench (partially filled in) that had surrounded it
- St. Peter’s Anglican Cathedral
Located in lovely grounds some 2 km from the town centre in the direction of the Butiaba road. A beautiful serene site in the early mornings. A visit for Sunday mass is a very special experience whatever your faith.
