Bungee jumping in Jinja is one of the most spectacular adrenaline sights you can imagine. The views from the bungee tower are sensational and when the tower is not in use for jumping a troop of Vervet monkeys stand guard against the Nile River.
The views over the source of the Nile – the world’s longest river lead you to dozens of heavily forested islands with flocks of long-tailed cormorants swimming in the swirling currents below and crowds of onlookers cheering from the nearby bar. Jinja Bungee is 44m above the waters of the Nile River and this gives jumpers the opportunity to water touch – a single splash in the river on the first bounce; and you can do it with a friend!
The tower can jump 235kgs at once so you can choose a big friend, a bicycle, chair, kayak or just about anything you can imagine. By far the most popular way to jump is using the ankle tie but there is the option of a full-body harness as well. This means you can somersault from the edge or choose any form of freestyle that will give you the best bragging rights in the photographs.
