Wny Travel to Jinja? by

Situated on the banks of Lake Victoria at the source of the world's longest river, the Nile, Jinja is an adrenaline junkie's paradise.

With a tropical climate and surrounded by lush forests and sugar cane fields, there's a smorgasbord of activities to keep travellers busy.

African Budget Safaris offer a number of trips that include overnight stays in Jinja. Ask our consultant for guidance if you're unsure.

Highlights

  • The source of the Nile River and Speke Monument
  • White water rafting, or more gentle kayaking, in the longest river in the world - The Nile
  • Bungee-jumping, with a dunk in the Nile at the bottom
  • Quadbiking through the beautiful, tropical countryside
  • Horse-back safaris
  • Visit the spot and memorial gardens where some of Ghandi's ashes were scattered

Adventure Capital

Known as Uganda's 'Adventure Capital', Jinja offers the adventurer a wide range of activities.

Kayaking along the more gentle sections or navigating the white water rapids (up to Grade 5) of the Nile in rubber dinghies with experienced guides - there's something to suit every level of experience and thrill-seeking.

Just down the Nile you can attach yourself to a rubber band and bungee jump, ending your flying with a little dip into the Nile itself.

Other adventure activities offered include quadbiking through the equatorial forests and horseback-riding.

The Town

Jinja town itself offers the visitor a glimpse into a typical African town. With a population of over 70 000 people, it has all the mod cons - shops, internet cafes, pharmacies, sports centres and a hospital.

In the centre of town lies the market, a frenzied hub of activity spread over a vast number of stalls that sell from chicken's feet to beautiful textiles, and everything in-between.

Down the main street, old colonial buildings mingle with more modern African architecture and boda bodas (motorcycle taxis) weave between cars.

Source of the Nile

At the source itself, where the Nile flows out of Lake Victoria, there are memorial gardens to Ghandi, some of whom's ashes were scattered here.

On the opposite bank lies the Speke Memorial - in recognition of Speke's discovery of the source. He was the first European to find it.

African Budget Safaris Trips to Jinja

A number of ABS trips include an overnight stay in Jinja and some time to spend either exploring the town, visiting the source of the Nile, or getting the adrenaline pumping doing one of the adventure activities.

Tours include accommodation in budget lodges or tents. Ask your ABS consultant for more details.
