Eastern Uganda

Travel to Eastern Uganda – Mount Elgon & Source of the Nile

Eastern Uganda is not only home to the Source of the Nile and some of the best rafting in the world at Jinja, but also gives rise to Mt. Elgon, a 4,321m high extinct volcano which in prehistoric times stood taller than Kilimanjaro does today. Nowadays it is growing in popularity as a destination for trekkers with spectacular scenery of waterfalls, gorges and mountain vistas. The Kenyan border lies not far away and many travellers pass through this region en route to Nairobi.

  • Visit Sipi Falls in the foothills of Mt. Elgon volcano – one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Uganda
  • Raft the Nile and experience one of Africa’s greatest whitewater rafting trips
  • Spend a day in Jinja and discover the Source of the Nile for yourself
