It is almost a cultural experience just getting down the red dirt roads to find the falls. It makes a great excursion if you happen to be in Jinja. I would not make a separate trip just to see them.

Scary falls but great adventure. It has three parts, easy, medium and hard but your guide should help you navigate your adrenaline/adventure levels quite well. Go for it

Almost two hours from Jinja on the dusty road (we don't rush) but really super to sit by the racing, roaring water. Please don't pay the young men to jump in and swim downstream; better to give them something NOT to do it. Super place...More

Apparently I would say it is the only beautiful falls left on the Nile river, which is so sad to say, but the good news is, it is very spectaculars to watch the water play hide and seek with the rocks

So the falls are great, don't get me wrong; but its a very awkward place to be for an elongated period of time. You can only sit on the rocks for so long. Choose a more comfortable point to while away time. It is a...More
