Our Location

We are located on the western (Kampala) side of the River Nile, not far from the official source of the Nile in Jinja, Uganda. We do have multiple yellow and black signs on the Jinja, Kampala highway and also on Kayunga Rd. We are about 15-20 minutes drive from Jinja town centre. Search for us on Google maps under Nile Horseback Safaris.

Jinja Transport Options

1. Motorcycle Taxis/Boda Bodas

Boda Boda motorcycle taxis are available everywhere and can get you to our premises easily. Allow 20 minutes travel from Jinja town or 25 minutes travel time from Bujagali. Boda Boda taxis will generally wait for you to finish your ride. (should be no more than 25,000 Ush p/p return from anywhere around Jinja.)

2. Boat From Eastern side of the Nile

A water taxi can pick you up from the Bujagali area (Speke Camp, Nile River Explorers Campsite, River Camp and the Nile Porch) and transport you to Nile Horseback Safaris stable for about 10,000 to 20,000 shillings per person return, dependent on how many are in your group. Its a 5-minute scenic boat ride and the best option if you are staying on the east side of the Nile.

3. Taxi/Special Hire

You can catch a taxi from any accommodation around Jinja. This is a good option for groups of 4 + riders who are not staying by the river. The Taxi will generally wait for you to finish the ride as part of the price. Allow 20 minutes for travel from Jinja town or 25 minutes from Bujagali. (should be no more than 90,000 Ush for the whole group return. However, you can probably negotiate for a better price.


Not all Boda Boda drivers or Taxi drivers in Jinja know where our premises are. If possible print the map or mention that you need to go to Naminya Village on Kayunga Road as most Jinja drivers will know the area. There is only one tarmac road in Naminya and our sign is on it. We can also organise taxi drivers that know our premises to pick you up and ensure you are not ripped off. If you are running late please call and let us know if possible as we de-saddle horses an hour after a no-show booking time.
