Overview

Kitagata Hot SpringsKitagata is a vernacular word for warmth, but because of the popularity of the place, the village and sub-country are called Kitagata.

There are two hot springs adjacent to each other. According to the locals, one of the springs was used by the former Omugabe (King of Ankole) and is known as Ekyomugabe. The other spring is believed to have healing powers and is known as Mulago, after Uganda’s largest National Referral Hospital. Some locals drink the water.

On arrival to the site one will notice semi-nude men and women bathing in the warm waters of Kitagata Mulago, the one believed to possess healing powers. Many people bathe in the waters of Kitagata Mulago, sometimes as many as 200 in a twenty-four-hour period. The water in the springs can warm up to 80 °C (176 °F).

The road to this place is marrum and is located near a large swamp. The scenery to the site is breath taking with conical hills and inselbergs characterized with beautiful green vegetation of trees and grass. During the rainy season, River Ngaromwenda, the river that supplies water to the springs floods thereby causing the kitagata springs to be rather warm other than hot.

The residents of Kitagata are concerned that the construction of the nearby Kagamba-Ishaka Road, may have put the hot springs in harm’s way by exposing them to flooding. Read More
