East Africa’s adventure capital

Jinja

It sounds like a bold claim, but Jinja is known as the adventure capital of east Africa for good reason – it’s a stone’s throw from the source of the Nile River, where whitewater rafting and bungee jumping await.

Why Jinja?
The town of Jinja sits on the northern shore of Lake Victoria, the world’s second-largest freshwater lake. If the plentiful boating, canoeing, kayaking, swimming and fishing opportunities aren’t enough for you, turn up the thrills with whitewater rafting on the Nile, or leap off the Nile High Bungee. You’ll plummet 44 metres and touch the water before springing back up – not an activity for the faint of heart.

You can also opt for more tame activities like a river cruise, horse riding or nature walking. Jinja is a great place to start or end your Uganda adventure, or just as a place to pause before continuing on to another safari destination.
  • Great views of enormous Lake Victoria.
  • Whitewater rafting.
  • Bungee jumping.
  • River cruises.
