Jinja is a City in Eastern Uganda, Africa. It is the second busiest Commercial Center in the Country, after Kampala, the Capital, and Largest City. Jinja lies in South-Eastern Uganda, approximately 54 Miles (87 Kilometres), by road, east of Kampala, the Capital. The City is located on the shores of Lake Victoria, near the source of the Nile River.
Jinja is a buzzing little city in eastern Uganda that has quickly risen to become the adrenaline capital of East Africa and the second busiest commercial center in the country after the capital of Kampala.
The name “Jinja” comes from the language of the two tribes—the Baganda and the Basoga—that reside on either side of the River Nile. In both languages, Jinja means “rock”, referring to the city’s stunning position along the shores of Lake Victoria at the foundation of the river, an address that attracts visitors near and far for some of the best white water rafting and adventurous recreation on the continent.
For a true immersion into Jinja’s wonders, opt for a half or full-day river-rafting excursion designed to accommodate first-timers and thrill even the most seasoned rafters.
Traveling to the source of the Nile also warrants spectacular kayaking and bungee jumping outings, as well as serene nature, and walks to absorb the beauty of Jinja and its riverine islands at a more leisurely pace.
Over 130 species of bird have been spotted around the islands, including cormorants, fish eagles, and hornbills. Along the way, guests are likely to spot plenteous coffee, tea, and sugar plantations, the Owens Fall Dam, and multiple fishing villages lining the shores of Lake Victoria.
The town of Jinja itself is a bustling little place with some wonderful architecture, a large local brewery, and a private Sailing Club on the shores of Lake Victoria.
Jinja is also home to a beautiful nine-hole (18 tees) golf course that was originally laid out in the mid-1920s and famously upheld a local rule allowing a free drop of the ball if it came to rest in a hippo’s hoof print. The golf course boasts tremendous views of the Nile and Lake Victoria, and the second green is within a ‘lob wedge’ of the source of the Nile.
Jinja hosts a number of the most beautiful hotels and resorts known to the world. For those seeking fine hotels and resorts, Jinja offers some of the best five-star accommodation in Uganda.
Among the best hotels includes Bilkon Hotel, Crested Crane Hotel, Forever Resort, Holland Park, Hotel Bellevue, Impala Suites Hotel, Jinja City Hotel, Jinja Nile Resort, The Nile Porch, Nile Hotel, Rydges Accommodation, Saranac on the Nile, Source of the Nile Hotel among others.
