Nabongo visits all countries in the world.

The Ugandan Jessica Nabongo has become the first Black woman to visit all of the world's 195 countries. Nabongo, born in Detroit after her parents emigrated to the US, started travelling at the age of six.

Now 34, Nabongo made history when she touched down in Seychelles, the last country on the list, with over 50 friends and family members.

The travel entrepreneur uses her Instagram account to share her experiences and tip her followers, who have a desire to venture out of their comfort zones.

"So much to say but for now I will just say thank you to this entire community for all of your support. This was our journey and thanks to all of you who came along for the ride!"

Nabongo only decided on the goal of visiting all the countries in the world in 2017. At the time, she had travelled to 60 countries.

She has consequently visited 135 countries in just two and a half years.
