Kampala-Jinja Cities

After breakfast, the guide will pick you up from Kampala and navigate to Jinja, a popular safari destination through Lugazi; a preferred place to put your feet up and healing for the Kabakas of the Buganda Kingdom.

We advance to Mabira Forest, a lage natural tropical forest covering a vicinity of more than 300 sq. km along Kampala-Jinja road.  Being close to the country’s two biggest cities grants a better opening for traveler’s experience. Bird watchers are not left out since the forest inhabits species of forest birds like, Hornbill species, Sun birds, Weyn’s Weaver, African Grey parrot, Rare blue swallow and best birding site at the forest-fringed pond.

This forest is a mixture of patches of open grassland, valleys with papyrus swamps, and more than 200 species of trees that have been acknowledged. With attractive walking trails, you can have a good view of the red tailed monkey, but the White Colobus, Grey-cheeked Mangabey and Blue Duiker Monkeys are the common ones.

Lunch will be at a hotel in Jinja –an attractive hotel on the edge of a hill over the Nile. There after, you will take a ride to the source of River Nile-a quiet beautiful place. The environment is overflowing with palm trees, incredible tropical plants. As you hike down the steps toward the Nile, you can feel the serene vegetation there.

You will get to hear the gurgling Nile waters from a distance; observe local fishermen casting their nets in the river that takes 90 days to reach Egypt! – We shall organize 90 minutes boat cruise on Nile River crossing into Lake Victoria!  Don’t forget to take memorable pictures for your friends! The guide will then drive you back to Jinja town for an afternoon town tour and probably to a place where you can buy Ugandan crafts.

At the end of the Jinja town tour, you will navigate to Bujagali Falls. It lies 9 km north of Jinja town.  White water falls are about 10km downward the River Nile.
