Known to kayakers and rafters, including Prince William of Great Britain, this stretch of the Nile is easily one of the most hidden jewels of Uganda. Few traveller guidebooks mention this spectacular set of rapids, waterfalls and the hillsides around it. Even fewer know how to get there over land. Unlike at the source of the Nile the way to the falls is not paved with souvenir stands and hawkers shouting at you to buy their wares. Itanda Falls at Jinja, is still the Nile non-commercialized, the way it has been for many years. To locals it is considered a sacred site…a “Blessed Place” where those living near the falls come to pray at the base of a tree in times of adversity such as when they need a physical miracle.
