The journey itself is a pleasant one which will take you through the outskirts of Kampala and into the more rural areas of the eastern Buganda Kingdom. As you get closer to Jinja you will cross into the Busoga Kingdom, which is one of the 5 constitutional monarchies in Uganda today. Jijna Town itself is accessed by crossing over Owen Falls Dam which was completed in 1954.

Day 3: Jinja Town

With the natural terrain in Uganda being what it is, one of the best ways of seeing parts of the country is on a motorbike, however, when in Jinja you are able to use a quad bike! This guided excursion will allow you to explore the tracks and trails beside the Nile; connecting small villages and farms. This will give you a great insight into Ugandan rural life and afford you some incredible scenery.

For thousands of years, the source of the Nile River has been a subject of constant speculation. The Ancient Egyptians believed that the river had its source in two great mountains with eternal springs. From here one branch was said to flow north, dividing Egypt, and another south into Nubia and Ethiopia. Some also believed that the Nile River’s annual inundation was caused by snowfall at its source. In August 1858 explorer John Hanning Speke became the first European to see Lake Victoria. He claimed this largest lake in Africa to be the source of the Nile River.
