Full description

Explore the Ugandan countryside and discover the town of Jinja on the shore of Lake Victoria with this full-day tour from Kampala. See a range of sights, including the source of the River Nile, Sezibwa Falls, Mabira Forest, Owen Falls Dam, and more. Get insights from your guide, and enjoy included lunch and hotel transfers.

After pickup at your hotel in Kampala, drive for approximately 80 kilometers (around 50 miles) to Jinja. Visit the authentic, original source of the Nile site where the British explorer, John Hanning Speke, first discovered the River Nile (of course the Africans knew there was a river, but anyway). Stand where he stood, and take a picture with the monument.

Next, go for a boat ride across the river and into Lake Victoria. See monkeys, monitor lizards, pythons, and maybe even an authentic African Witchdoctor. Admire a truly spectacular natural setting that is ideal for birdwatching and allows for nature walks.

This tour is thoughtfully put together and the efficient itinerary also packs in Sezibwa Falls, a walk in the Mabira Forest, and Owen Falls Dam. All transportation and entrance fees are included.
