Jinja is the third largest urban center in Uganda, after Kampala and Entebbe. It is located on both Lake Victoria and the Nile River; the location of the Source of the Nile. In terms of services, it is comparable to the larger centers, but has the advantage of little traffic. There are many old stately homes in Jinja, a few unoccupied; during the reign of Idi Amin, the Asian community that occupied these homes were thrown out of Uganda and many of these houses remain unclaimed. The town is very lively, with many shops, handicraft workshops, internet cafes, restaurants, hotels, bars and even a golf course. Fish is available in most restaurants, freshly caught from Lake Victoria, the southern border of the town.
