The Tulambule Tourism Campaign aimed at promoting local tourism is in Northern Uganda for another edition.
The campaign is geared towards promoting local tourism and reminding Ugandans to travel and see places and experience what motherland Uganda has to offer. Here are our top ten photos from the campaign.
Ambassadors for the northern Uganda edition include; Salvador (Patrick Idringi), Gaetano Kaggwa, Anita Fabiola, Marcus Kwikiriza and kickboxer Moses Golola
They made several stopovers in various towns as they bought foodstuffs and other edibles including muchomo (roasted meat) and roasted gonja (plantain) since Uganda is a food nation with a lot of culinary options to indulge their taste buds.
