1 Day Jinja and Source of the Nile Tour.

Jinja is referred to as the adventure capital of Uganda. But even the non-adventurous souls are catered for in this amazing source of the Nile Town. It is usually advisable to start the day a little bit early so as to view the elusive birds in the morning and to experience the best early morning cool weather but still thank God for small favors, even if you miss the morning weather it is always cool in the Mabira forest.

Pick up from your place of residence as early as 8:00 A.M, and travel to Jinja, our first stop over is the Sezibwa falls. Sezibwa Falls is a 45 minutes’ drive from Kampala and is located on Jinja Road after Mukono Town. It is a wonderful place for a nature walk, birding, picnics, a limited hike to the top of the falls and the cultural worship grounds with their lush greenery grounds which are suitable for camping with sound of the falls in the background.
We then proceed to Mabira Forest, Jinja Town and end the day with a boat cruise on the River Nile.
