They are situated in Bushenyi district about 350 kms west of Kampala, the capital city of Uganda near to Queen Elizabeth National Park. The Hot springs, Ekitagata, where the township and the administrative area derive their name from, provide one of the nice attractions to any visitor to Kitagata in Bushenyi district. Two big springs lie adjacent to each other 1 kilometer from the Kitagata trading centre and have water to temperatures as hot as 80 degrees centigrade.
The hot springs also have historical importance as one was used by the King of Ankole and hence referred to locally as ‘Ekyomugabe’ (the Kings Spring) while the other adjacent one is more known for its medicinal value and referred to as Mulago in reference to Uganda’s national referral hospital.
Many visitors travel to Kitagata to treat themselves to the hot baths or just to catch a glimpse of people bathing in these natural hot Spas. Kitagata hot springs are also well known for their curative waters. Patients from as far as 100 kms flock the springs to soak themselves in the spring waters to heal them; Some other patients drink the sulphur rich waters of the hot springs for cure from rheumatism and arthritis.
Kitagata is a vernacular for warmth, but because of the popularity of the place, the village and sub-country are also called Kitagata.
The springs are a must visit to anyone visiting Bushenyi and are on the route that easily connects to Queen Elizabeth, Bwindi and Lake Mburo National Parks in Western Uganda.
