Day tour to Jinja
Destination:
Places to Visit:

Early morning after breakfast, you will be picked up from your hotel or residence, and drive heading to the East of Kampala to a once known as Uganda’s industrial town Jinja. Today Jinja is regarded as a residential town full of old Indian styled structures that Indians lived in before the Idi Amin reign. It is said to be a milt culture town though the dominant tribe here is the Basoga.

Jinja boasts of being the place where River Nile, one of the longest Rivers in the world has its source. This has in time attracted tourists worldwide to visit the Source of the Nile. There is also Bujagali Falls in this same town where the day’s fun and adventure start. The day’s activity is either White water Rafting OR Quad bike riding. Aside from sightseeing, Jinja offers several other exciting activities for tourists.

Quad bike Safari:
The ride takes you through Kyabirwa village and downstream along the river, past some of the big rapids such as ‘Total Gunga’ (the GSpot) and Silverback. This first section allows you to get more used to riding your quad bike. The safari takes you through narrow tracks through farms, forests and villages beside the Nile. After the lunch break, continue upstream a little away and out into the Nile hinterland onto sections that are only used for full-day trips. The sections are selected by the guide depending on weather, seasonal conditions and one’s ability or inclination. A kit of what to use during the sport is provided on-site.

Wild or Mild white-water Rafting:
Full/half-day white water rafting on the rapids of River Nile may be wild or mild. Here the client chooses either to be rowed downstream by professional guides in the safety raft OR may opt to raft the paddle-powered boats for one of the wildest raft rides on the planet. This is such a wonderful experience with lots of tales to tell. The expedition takes you over a 5 rapids grade offering a hilarious experience on the waters of River Nile, known to be the longest river in the world.

Birding:
Birding sites include among others; Mabira forest, along the riverbanks, Samuka Island, and at the source of the Nile.
