Cultural Day-Trip to Kibiro Salt Mining Village (a UNESCO World Heritage Centre)

Kibiro village is a sandy beach along Lake Albert where food does not grow. The population therefore depends for its livelihood on the exchange of salt and fish for food through time with neighboring farming communities. This village therefore forms an important cultural site which has combined both archaeology and ethnography through time in the production of ash salt.

    Stop At: Kibiro, Uganda

    Kibiro is a small fishing village in Uganda that lies on the south-eastern shore of Lake Albert. The residents of the village are unable to produce their own agricultural products, and must trade with other communities for most of their necessities. salt producing has sustained the people around for more than 700 years and continues to do so perhaps for posterity from fishing on Lake Albert, they depend on production of ash salt which is obtained by recycling residual earth with fresh soil which is spread on salt gardens for the salty water to get absorbed by capillary system. Through repeated scraping, spreading and heaping of the salty soil over a seven days period, it is leached and the scam is boiled to crystallization point to produce the ash salt.
