East of Jinja, on Lake Victoria, Samuka Island is home to birdlife, including little egrets. This 1 Day Jinja Safari takes you through the beauty of Jinja town as one of Uganda’s top tourist destinations.

After the Ssezibwa falls, you will then continue to Mabira forest for a 2 hour walk within the forest that is about 300 square kilometers situated in Buikwe district between Lugazi and Jinja district. During your walk in this beautiful national rainforest, you will be able to sight on a variety of bird species accompanied by some primate species. An interesting thing about this natural forest is that, you will have a one hour walk within the forest without sighting on the sun because of its thickness and great temperatures.

Visiting the source of the Nile and birding

After the amazing experience in the forest, you will then proceed to Jinja for lunch breaks and later head to the source of Nile River where you may decide to have a picnic and still enjoy numerous bird species and a number of lizards that meander across the Nile source. While at this site, you will point out where the Nile River separates from Lake Victoria where a stream of water runs to the North forming the Victoria Nile co-joining the Albert Nile in the Murchison falls national park and then continue in  Southern Sudan forming the Blue and White Nile which continues to Egypt in the Mediterranean sea.
