Kigungu Landing Site

Kigungu Landing Site (the church is the monument). It is located on the shores of Lake Victoria, past Entebbe International Airport. On this spot is where the first catholic missionaries to Uganda landed on the 17th February in the year of our lord 1879. The missionaries who landed at this site include Rev. Simon Lourdel and brother Amans who belong to the white furthers group. The spot is therefore considered the birth place of the catholic faith in Uganda.

The pilgrimage is taken by Catholics to the site every 17th February of every year to pay homage to the spot where their faith was born.  The area consists of numerous bird species, insects and butterflies birds include the king fisher, black kites and the fish processing plant.
