Getting Around

Transfers between Explorers Backpackers & Explorers River Camp:

Our vehicle departs the River Camp at 08.30 every morning to come to town and returns at approximately 17.00. Please note the 08.30 transfer is predominately for people rafting that day so if you would like to use this transport please let the office know so that we can arrange extra vehicles if required.

Other Ways to get around in Jinja:

Boda Boda

The most common form of transport around Jinja is the boda-boda (bicycle or motorbike) which can be found on most corners and are readily available outside both NRE Adventure Central and Explorers River Camp. Many boda-boda drivers will try and convince you to double up on one boda. We do not recommend this, the saving made is minimal but the risk of an accident is increased.

Special Hire

Private taxis or special hires are readily available for both short, long distance and multi-day travel. Nile River Explorers regularly uses the following drivers:

  • Aaron Tel: 0772 485761
  • Musa Tel: 0712 456094
  • Robert Tel: 0712 973072

They are all honest, reliable, have vehicles in good condition and most importantly are safe drivers.
