Things to do in Jinja

The always full-of-life adventure capital of East Africa–Jinja town was established in 1907, the second largest city in Uganda & the second busiest commercial centre after the capital Kampala.
Around Jinja there is a breathtakingly beautiful landscape with warm accommodating & hospitable people, a town where the entire landscape is composed of a large garden with luscious greenery. You can not choose anywhere better than Jinja when you travel to Uganda.

A city where everything is alive and nature is very lush!

Adventures for you

Rafting on the river Nile (where many of the global rafting-elites train) with companies Nalubale, Adrift, NRE
Kayaking, canoeing
Horse-riding & 4-wheelsafari through villages

And lots more…


When traveling Uganda we highly recommend 2friends newly opened extraordinary Hotel by the beach & close to the airport in Entebbe!

And of course 2 Friends in Jinja, a stone’s throw from our Guesthouse.


For Safari-trips we recommend Murchison River Lodge!
Most price-worthy & also do accommodate Safari-trips in the region!
