"Drums" Jinja District Things to Do Tip by K.Knight
Jinja District Things to Do: 18 reviews and 39 photos
Uganda is famous for the drums that they manufacture.
Littered along the highway, near Jinja, are numerous cottages and huts that act as shop fronts selling drums. When stopping at these huts you will come across the entire drum making process laid out in all the different stages.
From the cow hides that are lying in the sun to dry, the woodcarving that is in progress, a workman stringing the drum or the women that are completing the finished product, it is interesting to stop and look at the craftsman in action.
A small drum was approx US$12 and the large drums that stand 24 inches tall were approx $60
