This is the principal
centre in the region where there are small roadside shops and bottle
stores, and a couple of smart new malls with banks and supermarkets. This is
the second largest town in this populous region and fairly well provisioned.
The only tourist attraction is the informative and well-presented Nakambale
Museum at Olukonda, signposted off the B1 before you reach town. The makalani palm trees have survived in
the harsh landscape, perhaps because of their inefficiency as firewood, and
offer attractive silhouettes at sunset, the mopane having long since been
cut down for firewood, and offer attractive silhouettes at sunset. For a few weeks after heavy rains, the oshanas
fill with water and pale pink and while lilies miraculously appear; you may
also see the cone-shaped fishing baskets in use.
