ABOUT JINJA, UGANDA
Although Uganda is a land-locked country in Central-Eastern Africa, the town of Jinja has plenty of water both from Lake Victoria and the Nile River. Jinja is commonly known as the "Source of the Nile." With the abundance of water, Jinja has become known as an adventure watersport hotspot.
Some interesting facts about the Nile itself is that it starts in Uganda (which lies in East-Central Africa) and actually flows north until it empties into the Mediterranean Sea via the northern part of Egypt. The Nile is only one of two major rivers in the world that flow in a northern direction.
