After the 5 days of doing very little, I decided to take a trip out to Jinja for a few days away from Kampala.

Another early start, and I was the only person on the free shuttle bus between Kampala and Jinja! I read for a bit then went to sleep for the rest of the journey. The bus reached Nile River Explorers Backpackers in Jinja Town at about 9 45, and I had some breakfast, before getting a Boda out too Nile River Explorers Campsite out at Bujagali Falls, set on the top of the Hill, overlooking the falls!

After putting my bags into the dorm, I cam out to the bar, where the balcony overlooks the river, very impressive view.

I took a Boda back down into Jinja to get some things (much needed local simcard.....) and also meet up with another person from Oswestry, Richard! We had a drink and chatted. Its a VERY SMALL world, seeing as Richard used to play for Oswestry Rugby Club, and knew Pete (who i meet last week) but didn't know he lived/worked in Kampala! I then got another Boda back to the campsite/place im staying at!

The Boda journey between Bujagali Falls and Jinja is very up and down, with a paved road only half of the journey! with dirt track for the latter half! its very interesting to be on the back of the boda whilst going along these roads!!
