2 Days Jinja Tour for White Water Rafting

2 Days

2 Days White Water Rafting tour in Jinja is an excellent package for travelers while in Uganda. Jinja is located in the eastern part of Uganda – 85km away from the capital Kampala. Established in 1907, Jinja is Uganda’s second-largest town and former industrial hub. It is in Jinja where you find the exact spot where Lake Victoria releases its waters to the great river Nile (known as the source of the Nile). The town is quiet, serene, and relatively well planned with a lot of interesting activities such as bungee jumping, horseback riding, quad biking, boat rides, nature walks, sightseeing, and of course white water rafting to mention but a few. While on a true Uganda Safari visiting Jinja is one thing you must do.

White water rafting is an amazing activity that teaches one how to handle pressure and remain calm under pressure. The activity takes you rowing through the turbulent sections and rapids of the river Nile in Jinja. The rapids in Jinja are graded 4 and 5 hence offering some of the best white water rafting experiences in the continent. The construction of a new power hasn’t stopped the activity from going on.
