  Beyond that island that's still Lake Vic
by TinyTuck

Jinja is the place where the Nile emerges Lake Victoria.
It's a bit spooky to imagine standing at the source of this huge river. Other than that this place is really not spectacular, but quite pleasant. You can sit down at the river shore and have a drink, or take a boat ride to the exact spot where the Nile starts off his long journey. I didn't go on the boat, so I can't provide you with any details about that.
