The destination Uganda in her bid to create a diverse tourist product, it is working tooth and nail to tap into the sport tourism to add it to the list of what to encounter by travelers on safaris in Uganda.
Supporting the golf tournament and other events in Kigezi region and
the eventual partnership of Uganda Tourism Board with the Sports Tourism
International (STI) along with other tourism stake holders to launch
the source of the Nile corporate challenge can be considered as efforts
that are directed to developing sports tourism in Uganda and increase
with the Uganda safari products.
The Source of the Nile challenge launched under the theme “Unlocking
the Potential of Sports Tourism in Uganda” is set to take place on 28th
August running up to 30th in the adventure capital of Uganda - Jinja
that is always encountered on Uganda safaris and tours.
It should be noted that for long the tourism product in Uganda featured
Uganda gorilla safaris and wildlife safaris with less diversity in
other fields. It is therefore considered as the high time the tourism
circuit is widened to incorporate a range of products that will cater
for the diverse interests of travelers that would wish to plan safaris to Uganda.
The Sport Tourism international works to ensure the active local
community participation which will help to enhance their livelihood
through tourism. Also branded as the East Africa’s Adventure capital,
Jinja boasts of the Nile adrenalin that presents a myriad of water
sports including the white water rafting, canoeing, bungee jumping and
speed boating not forgetting the activities on the banks like horse back
riding and quad biking coupled with a range of accommodation
establishments in the area, Jinja stands as an ideal sports tourism
destination and worth encountering while on a safari in Uganda.
The event is expected to attract close to a hundred (100) corporate

region, South Sudan, Nigeria, Ethiopia and Egypt. The Source of the Nile
corporate challenge will feature activities like swimming gala, birding
