    Kasubi tombs turned into Unesco world heritage sites and since then, the place has been a tourist attraction center for many. Even when the tombs were burned by fire back in 2010, it remained the same. I here the site has been rebuilt and am looking forward to checking in when I arrive soon.

    Touring the river nile in Jinja Uganda is what I never missed out every time I come to Africa and in East africa. The source of the nile is a great traveling attraction which I love till today. I am a fan of touring and have been to so many countries but Uganda is wow I agree. Jinja, once a richer city is still on the world map for its historical facts like the nile and being the place where electricity is generated. Oh, a great article indeed.
