You haven’t seen a traffic jam until you’ve witness the Old Taxi Park in Kampala. Located in the triangle between Luwum, Burton and South Streets, the park serves taxis and minibuses headed to in Eastern Kampala and Uganda.
While a taxi park might not sound interesting at first, the Old Taxi Park has become one of Kampala’s most popular (and free) tourist attractions, as visitors come not just for transportation, but to witness the seemingly chaotic yet somehow functional scene as thousands of drivers in their white vans navigate the congested spot. Vendors wander through the maze of vehicles selling water, ice cream and snacks to drivers and passengers waiting to get out.
If you want to photograph the Old Taxi Park, consider bringing a wide-angle lens to fit it all into your frame.
