Buganda Heritage Sites and Mombasa Fort Jesus

After so many years , I great you all... Happy days to you all...
I will just share with you my Royal Visit to sites that houses the Kingdom of Buganda . Buganda Kingdom is located in Central Uganda -East Africa.

Also I will share with you my other Destination of Mombasa Fort Jesus.

Fort Jesus in Mombasa Kenya

I did Visit Fort Jesus and I found it visibly amazing for you to see a fort that survived for ages.
In 1498 the Portuguese explorer Vasco De Gama arrived in Mombasa on his route to India. Fort Jesus was built after the Portuguese had been masters of the East African coast for nearly an hundred year

Mombasa Sand Beaches and Coral reef

We went to the beaches of Mombasa, had Ferry ride to the south Island. And the magnificent look of the island of MOMBASA surrounded by deep sea.

You could notice so many features and able to identify coral reef rocks all around.
Long sand Beaches that have hosts of hotels. Surprisingly, the waters disapppears after some time and later it comes back to the beach. Watch out if you don't find your self in the sea after a while.
