One comment on “Jinja”

The town is relaxing with serene gardens and the proximity to the lake gives it an awry cool experience. As a tourist you can enjoy water kayaking, a tour of the source of the Nile, bungy jumping and water rafting. Fish lovers can hook big Nile perch fish and it’s a paradise for bird watchers. You can easily get cheap accommodation and food is fairly priced. The down side is a few potholes in the roads that make some journeys bumpy. Keep your valuables out of site not to tempt the long fingered. Take bottled water or boil the one from the tap to avoid harmful bacteria.
