I’ve heard about the name of Musuni Island and for the first time about the travel group on Facebook. A quick Google search revealed that there are currently very few results available, because Musuni Island is a recently found unspoilt tourist destination. I don’t want to miss this opportunity to be there and more and more tourists will learn about their destination to lose its charm.

But my plans are for December, because it’s more or less full, and I was like, ” Instead of January. What could be the best way to spend a year with your family, so unspoilt by tourism?
