Jinja:

Located about two hours north-east of Kampala, the three Rs – rest, relaxation and rafting – can be found at Jinja, the Source of the Nile.

Things to do: Taking on grade four rapids ‘Vengeance’ and ‘Nile Special’ (named after a beer) won’t be an experience you’ll forget soon after. Besides rafting, Adrift (adrift.ug), co-founded by a Kiwi, offers bungee jumping, jet boating and river surfing. If that doesn’t float your boat (so to speak) there are also quadbike safaris (atadventures.com).

Where to stay: Adrift, which offers packages and runs a free shuttle bus between Kampala and Jinja, has a river camp with a cliff-top bar and restaurant with Nile views. The Nile Porch (nileporch.com) is a cheap option with great food. The idyllic Haven (thehaven-uganda.com) offer bungalows, bandas and camping options.

Going out: Check out the flavours at Flavours (enjoyflavours.com), a coffee bar and restaurant, and while it may be called The Office (9A  Kyagwe Avenue), the atmosphere at this bar is all party.
