Surfing the Nile at Jinja
Jinja sits on Lake Victoria’s northern shore, where the lake’s waters plunge into the majestic Nile. Far from its stately Egyptian calm, here the Nile rages with intensity, rapids firing down slopes and over boulders while salivating white-water rafters eagerly look on. Rafting or kayaking, bungeeing over the water, horse-riding along the banks – adrenaline activities abound, an enthusiastic wellspring of the river’s creative and natural force. It’s really worth trying your hand at an activity – it’s a surefire way of quickly appreciating the full mighty force of the river, the greatest of earth’s waterways.
