JINJA

WHY VISIT?

Back in 1862, explorer John Speke declared the (now submerged) Ripon Falls to be the source of the mighty River Nile, making Jinja an instant tourist attraction!

Ejjinja was the local Luganda name for the falls and the village which today, with its anglicised name, is the centre of adventure tourism in the country. It’s just two hours from Kampala.

THINGS TO DO

Source of the nile
White-water rafting
Bungee jumping
Boat trips
Birding
Quad biking
Horse safaris
Kayaking

WHAT WE SAY

As the falls are now submerged, there is less to see at Jinja… and lots to do instead! Don’t think of this wider area as only for gap-year backpackers, as a number of stylish upmarket properties have sprung up of late, offering plenty of R&R in amazing locations.

HOW LONG TO STAY

This will be largely dictated by the client’s reason for being there: perhaps just one night for R&R; but up to 3 nights or more for adrenalin junkies!
