What you need to know about Bungee jumping in Jinja:

Bungee jumping in Jinja is an adrenaline-filled experience that many people enjoy. The adventure begins with a drive to the jump site, which is located near the source of the Nile River. Once you arrive, you will be given a safety briefing and provided with all the necessary equipment, including a harness and a helmet. After the safety briefing and equipment check, you will be taken to the bungee platform, where you will be securely attached to the bungee cord. Once you are ready, you will be instructed to take the plunge! The experience of free-falling is exhilarating, and the sights of the Nile River and the surrounding area are absolutely breathtaking. After you have finished the jump, you will be safely lowered back to the platform, where you will be given a souvenir t-shirt to commemorate your experience.

Before-activity in Jinja:

You’ll be standing on the edge of a platform, looking down at the ground below. As you take in the view, you’ll feel a rush of excitement and anticipation.

After being weighed and fitted with the appropriate harnesses and ropes, it will be time to take the plunge. You’ll be ready to take on the challenge of bungee jumping and experience an adrenaline rush like no other!

During the Bungee jumping in Jinja:

Relax, stretch your arms out, bend your knees and jump into the void. Enjoy the sensation of the freefall, it will only last a couple of seconds, and then the rope will be fully stretched and the elastic will recoil and bring you to back up slightly and you will swing momentarily at the end of the rope until you are either lowered down to a specially-made landing area, platform or lifted back up to the spot you jumped from.


After the jump, I felt a great sense of accomplishment and relief! It was an amazing experience that I will never forget. The scenery in Uganda was breathtaking, and the feeling of freefall through the air was exhilarating. I’m so glad I got the chance to do something so daring and see a part of the world I wouldn’t have otherwise seen. Bungee jumping in Uganda was something I’ll never forget.
