Source of River Nile

The Source of river Nile is the best place to go for a breezy relaxation, excitement and discovery in Jinja. The Source of the Nile Gardens and Speke Memorial Site is a place in Jinja district with 17 acres marking the origin of the longest river in the world. With green calm and spacious gardens, the Source of the Nile is one of Uganda’s main tourist attractions with a number of indigenous birds and monkeys that are visible there all the time.

The place has stunning view over Lake Victoria, the world’s biggest fresh water lake. From this spot, River Nile flows through Lake Albert to the northern part of Uganda, to Sudan and finally to Egypt where it pours into the Mediterranean Sea covering a distance of 6695 km (4184 miles). The Source of the Nile Gardens is favourable for school and family tours plus intimate relaxation. Enjoying a variety of snacks and drinks, a guest to this place can have boat trips, camping and picnicking among others.

Visiting the Source of River Nile will take you through another life of adventure as its golf course along the water banks provides a nice-looking crucial point to the flow of water from Lake Victoria’s only exit. Riding a boat to Samuka Island is another memorable trip on top of the beautiful plant life along the route. Having an expedition downstream on the Nile River brings you to various activities including Bungee jumping, white water rafting, kayaking, river boarding and mountain-biking which all present an exceptional way to explore the river banks, going via farms, forests and villages around the Nile.

On the Nile line is Lake Kyoga that feeds the river with fresh water. The Nile water course then leads you to the great Murchison Falls, where much water roars and form a lullaby and here, activities like spot fishing, game drives and scenic viewing complement your expedition to Murchison Falls tendering a memorable experience. Murchison Falls National Park named after the Murchison falls waters which are part of the Nile River offers boat rides to the foot of the falls where you see hippos, crocodiles and magnificent bird life.
