Details of Jinja

The city of Jinja is sometimes known as the Adventure Capital of East Africa, with activities such as white water rafting and bungee jumping available nearby, but it is the Nile that draws many to the region.

It sometimes catches visitors by surprise that the River Nile can be visited in Uganda. Most associate the massive river with Egypt, where it finally completes its long journey and empties out into the Mediterranean Sea.

It is here in Uganda, though, that the river finds one of its starting points – with massive Lake Victoria providing the White Nile with the waters that will eventually make their way north.
