JINJA

SOURCE OF THE SMILE. I love Jinja. Everything about its slow paced laid back vibe always leaves me feeling new. It reminds me so much of growing up in Ndola which is why I make it a point to go at least two or three times a year. Famous for being the source of River Nile and the adventure capital ...

LAKE BUNYONYI

ISLAND GALORE. Waking up to that view was like something out of a really good book, the birds chirping, the sun reflecting off the lake, the mist! Just what I needed. Breakfast was an omelet of sorts, the hardest toast ever but slap cheese on anything and I’m good along with hot chocolate that did wonders ...
