We also create a range of tailor made and plan personalized safari itineraries to suit your style and budgets. 


About 3 hours drive from Entebbe, Jinja is known as the “Adventure Capital of East Africa”. African Roots can help you organize all the adventure activities – White water rafting, jet boating, kayak school, horseback safaris, quad bike safaris, bungee jumping or paragliding.

How to get to/from Jinja via Kampala – We can fix a transfer with our Guesthouse shuttle at USD100.00 (return journey driver and gas inclusive), alternatively we recommend The Pineapple Express inter-city shuttle service as a reliable and cost-effective option.
