Visit and Tour Jinja City:

Jinja is a city in Uganda, located on the northern shores of Lake Victoria in South Eastern Uganda near the source of the river Nile. Jinja city is in Jinja District, Busoga sub-region. It is approximately 81 kilometres (50 mi), by road, east of Kampala.

The city was planned under colonial rule in 1948 by Ernst May, German architect and urban planner. May also designed the urban planning scheme for Kampala, creating what he called “neighborhood units.” Estates were built for the ruling elite in many parts outside the center city. This led to the area’s ‘slum clearance’ which displaced more than 1,000 residents in the 1950s.

In 1954, the construction of the Owen Falls Dam submerged the Ripon Falls. Most of the “Flat Rocks” that gave the area its name disappeared under water as well. Jinja is commonly regarded as “the adventure capital of East Africa” due to the very many activities in town that one could engage in, especially for tourists.

Local attractions include waterfalls, white-water rafting activities, the “Source of the Nile”, Bungee Jumping, kayaking, cultural sites and so many other water activities
