Jinja City, termed the “adrenaline capital” by most adventurers, is located about 81 kilometres (50 miles) east of Kampala, at the point where the Nile River rushes out of Lake Victoria. This river is Jinja’s biggest draw because it hosts a range of tourist activities. The Nile River meanders approximately 6,650 kilometres from its source in Jinja across the desert wastelands of Sudan and Egypt.

The Nile River flows over 6,650 kilometres (4,130 miles) from its most remote headwaters to the delta formed as it joins the Mediterranean Sea in Egypt. Its huge drainage basin covers about 10% of the African continent and contains parts of nine countries, including Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Kenya, Burundi, Ethiopia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sudan, and Egypt. The Nile also supports the world’s largest wetland system, the Sudd, or Bar-el-Jebel, as it flows through southern Sudan.

The most exciting and popular element is the dramatic series of white water rapids from grades 1-5, with grades 1-3 for the faint of heart and grades 4-5 being the most difficult and not for the faint of heart. White-water rafting is Uganda’s most popular tourist activity on the Nile’s north bank, exceeding even mountain gorillas in the country’s southwest.

Jinja is located on the north side of Lake Victoria, above the Ripon Falls, which Speke identified in 1862 as the source of the Nile but was drowned during the construction of the Owen Falls Dam in the 1950s.

Jinja has long been Uganda’s industrial hub. Jinja is also the seat of Busoga Kingdom, the region’s principal cultural and administrative hub.

The Victoria Nile, which crosses through Jinja, separates the kingdoms of Busoga and Buganda, the latter of which is home to the Basoga, Uganda’s second most numerous language group. The Basoga speak a Bantu language that is quite similar to Luganda, notably the dialect of the Ssese Islands, but they claim a different origin than the Baganda.

Many visitors know this city as one that never sleeps, with a thriving nighttime and daytime economy that runs all year.

Uganda is a landlocked country located in Eastern Africa, neighboring Kenya, South Sudan, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda and Tanzania. It is in the heart of the Great Lakes region surrounded by Lake Edward, Lake Albert, and Lake Victoria. Uganda lies along the equator and experiences tropical climate with two dry seasons. The north-eastern part of the country is semiarid.

English is the official language of Uganda and many people can communicate in English. Other languages commonly spoken are Luganda and Swahili. If you plan on traveling to rural areas you will encounter several languages due to the cultural diversity of Uganda.

Uganda is generally safe for tourists because the government provides enough security especially around National Parks. The people of Uganda are the most hospitable you will meet and will make you feel at home. However, you should always take care of your personal belongings like money, phones, laptops and visa cards as theft is common especially in cities.

Ugandan Shillings is the main currency used throughout Uganda, while US dollars and British Pounds in few big business entities may also be accepted. Credit cards are likely to be accepted in big restaurants, supermarket and hotels. It is advisable to move with some cash when travelling to rural areas as ATMs may be hard to find there.

For tourists, the best time to visit Uganda is during the dry season, that is, from January to March and June to September. However, tourism activities are available all year round and the advantage of travelling during the off-peak season is lower demand especially for gorilla trekking permits.

Depending on your Citizenship and country of origin, check always your visa eligibility before travel plans advance. Online visa services for some countries are available, some nationalities can receive their visas upon arrival while others are visa-free.

Uganda is the most beautiful country in Africa with enjoyable climate and a vast range of flora and fauna. In Uganda lies ‘The Source of the Nile’ and also home to half of the world's remaining mountain gorillas. Uganda's National Parks house all sorts of animal and plant species and a visit to any of these parks will reveal to you why this land is called “The Pearl of Africa”!
