JINJA – The name ‘Jinja’ means ‘Rock’.  This was named so simply because in Africa, rivers like the Nile hindered migration, this explains the ethnic boundaries along the Nile as one moves north from the river’s source on the northern shores of Lake Victoria. It covers an area of 767.7sq Km of which 701.9 sq km is land and the rest (65.8 Sq km) is covered by water bodies. Jinja is famously known as the origin of the source of the Nile by British Explorer –John Speke and we do refer to it as the Adventure Town of Uganda!
