1 day tour Jinja with Bujagali Falls & Rafting

Tour Jinja , has for some time been known as “The Adventure Capital of Uganda” . Jinja lies in the south-east of Uganda , 54 miles ( 87 km ) north-east of the capital , Kampala . It is located on the shores of Lake Victoria , near to the source of the White Nile river . The city is the chief town of Jinja District , and is considered the capital of the Kingdom of Busoga .

Nearby towns and villages include Njeru , Buwenda , Kimaka , Mpumudde , Masese , Walukuba and Bugungu . Before 1906 , Jinja was a fishing village that benefited from being located on long - distance trade routes . The origin of the name “Jinja” comes from the language of the two tribes , the Baganda and the Basoga that lived on either side of the River Nile in the area . In both languages “Jinja” means “Rock” . In most of Africa , rivers like the Nile hindered migration , this explains the ethnic boundaries along the Nile as one moves north from the river 's source on the northern shores of Lake Victoria .
