Order A - Z

Venue

The very source of the River Nile, the lush tropical town of Jinja is incredibly lush with greenery and laid back. Think wide, palm-lined avenues and colonial era architecture. It also happens to be the adrenaline-capital of East Africa, thanks to its blood-pumping white-water rafting, kayaking and mountain biking options.
