Jinja Town, Uganda Destinations

River Nile Water Rafting Jinja Uganda

 

 The major attraction in Jinja is the River Nile itself and the series of grade five rapids popular for white water rafting as well as a bungee jumping place for the thrill seekers. It’s also one of the places the Explorer John Hanning Speke visited in search of the source of the Nile.

Jinja is the fourth largest town in Uganda and lies about 50 miles east of Kampala on the shores of Lake Victoria. It lies on one side of the Nile whilst the satellite town of Njeru is situated on the opposite bank. The Ripon Falls which Speke identified as the source of the Nile in 1862 were submerged by the Owen Falls Dam in the 1950's, making the source of the Nile a rather less interesting sight than it once was. However, the lush vegetation around Jinja does give the town a lovely tropical atmosphere.

The major attraction in the surrounding area is the River Nile itself and the series of grade five rapids that are becoming increasingly popular for white water rafting as well as bungee jumping.
