  • Start this day tour as early as possible, departing from Kampala not later than 7.00am. Driving along the Kampala – Jinja, your first stop is after about 20 miles (forty minutes drive) at the spectacular Sezibwa Falls. This is a cultural heritage site of the Buganda Kingdom that is rich with traditional folklore as shall be narrated by the site guide! Other than the cultural aspect, the falls are spectacularly beautiful, surrounded by lush greenery. There are plenty of birds and some wildlife such as monkeys that may be sighted in the nearby forest. You will spend roughly an hour exploring these serene spiritual grounds before returning to the highway.
  • After roughly twenty minutes you shall arrive to Mabira Forest for another exciting adventure. Mabira Forest is the largest natural forest in Central Uganda that extends several miles along the Kampala – Jinja highway. Sign up at the Mabira Forest Eco Site and take to the forest trails to explore this incredibly rich jungle. Look out for several monkeys, birds, butterflies, small mammals such as squirrels, and get to learn about the different species of trees. A group of Grey-cheeked Mangabeys has been habituated in this forest for which you stand a chance of encountering, however you will not be out to track them as this is different activity all together. After about two hours in Mabira, return to the road and drive to Jinja town.
  • Have lunch along the mighty Nile in Jinja, after which you will continue to the Source of the Nile. Take a boat ride from the shores of the Nile to the exact spot where the Nile waters start to flow. After some photo moments, enjoy the ride further into Lake Victoria, enjoying the beautiful countryside. For the keen birder, there are plenty of water birds including Cormorants, Egrets, Fish Eagles, Pelicans, etc… The ride is roughly an hour long, return and depart for Kampala, driving through Jinja town where you could purchase some souvenirs such as crafts.
