Kampala 1 Day Trips - Horseback Riding Jinja Tour

Kampala 1-Day Trips Horseback Riding Jinja Tour takes place on the side of the River Nile in Uganda about a 15-20 minutes drive from Jinja town centre. Jinja City lies in southeastern Uganda, about 87 Km by road to the east of Kampala. On our 1 day horseback ride, you will see real Uganda, which includes not only the stunning beauty of the River Nile and rural areas but also the village homes, workplaces/trading centres, and lives of people who live around the area.  You may be lucky and see wildlife (birds and monkeys on our rides) but our tours are not wildlife safaris, they are a snapshot of real-life Africa in the 2020s including all aspects both positive and negative. All our rides finish with a stunning 1km trail along the Nile.

We do prefer bookings so horses and guides are available when you arrive.  The horseback riding in Jinja is done between 10 am and 4 pm every day but we do also accept on-request bookings for a trip outside these hours. We provide multiple guides on our trips to accommodate those that may want to try going faster and to also allow others to stay within their comfort zone.

Please note: We have a strict 85kg rider weight limit for introductory safaris and an 80kg limit for longer rides. At the time of booking kindly provide the following information time of the ride (morning or afternoon), name, email address, hours of the ride ( 1 hour, 1.5 hours, or 2 hours), number of riders, and if you need transport from Jinja or Kampala.

Advanced Rider Safaris (2 Hours Ride)

these safaris are only for experienced riders that feel comfortable in canter. If you are not sure of your ability then you would be better suited to a mixed group safari.  Advanced rides cover a lot more ground than our mixed experienced safaris.

Request for rates


Advanced Rider Safari (3 Hours)

These safaris are only for experienced riders that feel comfortable in canter. If you are not sure of your ability then you would be better suited to a mixed group safari. This is our riders’ safari, a hardcore fast-paced ride, with only you or other very experienced riders.

You cover a lot of ground and unless you are riding regularly you will be exhausted after 3 hours. Long canters in the plantations, and also our standard sections in the village and along the riverbank. As good as it gets on our short rides.
