    Depart for Jinja in the early morning. A few kilometres downriver from "The Source", the Nile takes its first stage of the 6,300-kilometer journey to the Mediterranean Sea through the Bujagali Falls or "Budhagali" in Lusoga, the language of the Busoga people living in the area on the east bank of the Nile. Here the river divides into many channels. For many generations, Bujagali has been a sacred site for the Busoga people, and it is not uncommon for traditional healers to be seen, and others also come to the riverbanks to make sacrifices for the holy spirits who live by the river and the large mallow trees next door. Bujagali is now being submerged to power all East Africa through the Bujagali Hydroelectricity Project.

    In Jinja, you have the chance to visit the source of the Nile and the place where Speke became the first European to see the source of the Nile in 1862. There is also a memento of Mahatma Gandhi, where his ashes were scattered. If time permits, we drive through Jinja town. Jinja is the adrenaline capital of East Africa. Optional activities include fishing, bungee jumping, quad biking, boating, a nostalgic African Queen Cruise or just kayaking. The Jinja Sail Club is highly recommended for lunch or as a sunset boat ride (own expenses).
