view from the garden of the nile.Down to Victoria lake and the nile.The city of Jinja itself(center of the town)is not breathtaking:-)But the surroundings pay back.Lake Victoria and the nile plus all the beautiful flowers and all the birds are wonderful!It is a very green place and people are very friendly.It is no problem to walk around all areas.Jinja has some nice restaurants and pubs/cafes.

view from the garden of the nile.On the other side of the nile is Jinja.
