– Kalangala –
Named after its ‘chief town’, Kalangala is located on Bugala Island, the second largest island in Lake Victoria, after Tanzania’s Ukerewe Island.
The area is a habitat of so many tourism features and having an event like the autocross/enduro championship on the Island is a way of exploring the tourism benefits.
