For the adventurous, Jinja is the East African counterpart to more southerly adrenaline capitals, such as Victoria Falls and Cape Town. Enjoy a boat excursion to the source of the River Nile and get a glimpse of daily African life when walking through small villages – who knows you might be invited to lunch! Bujagali is the launch pad for white-water rafting that ranks as one of most thrilling but also one of the safest routes in the world, passing through five heart-stopping Grade Five rapids in one day. Other activities include kayaking, mountain biking, quad-biking and a 44 metre-high bungee cliff jump.
