3-Day Escape to Adventure Capital Jinja

Jinja is strategically located at the Source of the Nile, where Lake Victoria flows into the famous River Nile. It is the perfect base for a wide range of activities and watersports. In addition to the famous white water rafting, you might like to try Tandem kayaking, canoeing, Stand Up paddling, fishing, birdwatching, the sunset cruise, quad biking, bungy jumping or horse riding. If you love adrenaline activities, we’re sure you’ll want to try some of these too!

Day 1: Transfer to Jinja.

The transfer from Kampala to Jinja takes approximately three hours. Along the way, you may choose to stop at Mabira Forest, famous for its birds and primates.

Jinja Town is worth a visit for its fading yet still majestic colonial architecture. Jinja has a very welcoming, relaxed feel to the place. The main street is a great place for getting a good cup of coffee and buying some crafts.

Nestled in a luxuriant rainforest on its own private island, mid-stream in the mighty Nile, Wild waters Lodge is breathtaking. Thick riverine forest naturally covers the island and each of the ten timber-floor rooms is nestled amidst the forest with private views over the River Nile and its rapids. The expansive, canvas walled, traditionally thatched rooms each boast private decks with elegant free-standing baths and wash basins carved from the local pink granite.

Accommodation: Adrift River camp

Day 2: White Water rafting

Widely regarded as “the best one day rafting trip on the planet”, grade 5 whitewater rafting is the safest and most popular trip down the Nile. The rapids are challenging – but you will be safe in the hands of the expert rafters who know the river best. Your day will start with safety briefings, practice and more practice, before you embark on your down river adventure. The white water is exhilarating, and your nerves will soon give way to screams of laughter. A hearty lunch is provided on one of the islands in the middle of the day. This will be a day to remember. The rafting team will be there to photograph and video all the activities for you (optional charge).

Accommodation: Adrift River camp

Day 3: Depature

After breakfast, your driver will transfer back to Kampala. Unless you have a plane to catch in Entebbe, you’re welcome to visit Jinja town or try out some of the other adventure activities for which Jinja is famous!
