Jinja is one of the nearest towns that are close to Kampala City and it can be accessed by road transport.

The city is known as the Adventure capital of East Africa and it is the second largest town and commercial center in Uganda after Kampala .

It is situated in the eastern region of Uganda on the shores of Lake Victoria, adjacent to the source of River Nile. It is found on an Elevation of about 1171 meters, with annual average temperature of about 22.8 degrees Celsius.

The great White Nile River is home to some of the world’s best and wildest white water rafting. The Nile boasts rapids ranging from class 1 to 6, making rafting an ideal activity for all levels – first-time rafters as well as extreme adrenaline junkies.

Once in Jinja, there is bungee jumping, horse-riding safaris (along the banks of the Nile, cantering through the plantations and stopping off in the tranquil Mabira Forest), and quad biking, kayaking and canoeing – with a serene  sunset boat cruise on the Nile to end a busy day of adventure.
