Jinja - Uganda | African Budget Safari Tours

Jinja, Uganda


Jinja has made quite a few headlines. Lying on the shores of Lake Victoria, this is one of the spots on which Mahatma Gandhi chose to have his ashes scattered. A statue in his honour has been erected at a nearby Hindu temple.

The town is filled with old Asian-style buildings, reflecting the days when it had a thriving Asian community, until Idi Amin brutally kicked them out of Uganda. Nowadays Jinja has seen the return of most of these Asians, and once again, the town is beginning to prosper.
