Kasubi Tombs: Recognised as one of the UNESCO world heritage sites, tourists visiting Kasubi Royal tombs will not be disappointed with what will be uncovered as they take on their Uganda Safaris tour as they visit the different cultural sites in the country. The Kasubi royal tombs are the burial grounds for the royal family in the Buganda kingdom. The royal tombs are located in Kampala city and these have a lot of information that can be got from it. The tombs are significant of the four kings that were buried in there that is Kabaka Mwanga who ordered for the killing of the Uganda martyrs because of their faith in God, Kabaka Muteesa 1 who is responsible for the introduction of formal education in Uganda after he invited the missionaries into the country.

Kabaka Daudi Chwa 11 was responsible for the introduction of modernity in the Buganda kingdom where he constructed the first modern house in the kingdom of Buganda. He is also considered the father of modernity in the kingdom who believed inequality among the different genders that is to say during his reign, women were allowed to eat chicken and eggs like the men which were not the case in the previous years and another Kabaka that was buried there is Kabaka muteesa 11 who was responsible for the independence of Uganda.

He fought tooth and nail against the British rule and became the first president of Uganda. Other interesting details of the tombs are the architectural designs where most of the main shrine/ the burial place was constructed using wooden poles and roofed with grass to maintain the tradition of the early architecture of the people, the floor of the shrine/ burial site is filled with dry grass and handmade mats which brings out the authenticity of the place.
