I’d highly recommend booking this experience. From a first timer in Uganda, this tour is a mandatory requirement for those coming. The tour was fun and I enjoyed every second of it.
Highly recommended day trip!

Had a fantastic day trip to Jinja with Steven. Lots of interesting stops on the way seeing waterfalls, villages and Ugandan countryside. I especially enjoyed the walking tour through Mabira forest with its stunning flora and fauna. Steven was wonderful to spend the day with, as he is very knowledgeable and considerate.
