Are you tired of the Kampala-Jinja road traffic jam? Why get stuck there when you have an option of enjoying a free traffic route to Jinja. Following the introduction of MV Vanessa, a new private marine vessel operating on Lake Victoria, tourists and other travelers on Uganda safaris can now travel to Jinja for their Jinja city tour, for horse back riding safaris, water rafting, kayaking, quad biking safaris, as well as the Nile boat cruise using water transport. Instead of taking 4 to 5 hours to complete 110 kilometres, you can now get to Jinja using the MV Vanessa in just 2 and a half hours.
This means of transport will provide travelers with comfort, safety and stunning views of the world’s second largest fresh water lake; Lake Victoria and the Ugandan coastline, all while avoiding the traffic jams and craziness of the roads by the bad drivers. This lake is shared among 3 East African countries; Uganda which has the biggest share, Kenya and Tanzania Lake Victoria is estimated to cover about 68,000 square kilometers with more than 84 islands scattered all over East Africa.
MV Vanessa, a luxury boat with capacity to sit 54 passengers, is seeking to tap into the current void in the water transport tourism potential in Uganda. Its movement to the different set destinations will mark the beginning of utilizing Lake Victoria and other water bodies for the benefit of Ugandans and the international community as well.
MV Vanessa is one of the safest, modern boats certified to cruise on Lake Victoria that was awarded a seaworthy certificate to transport people. It brings out the true meaning of “a safe boat cruise”. It has 54 seats with 54 lifejackets, an onboard toilet, AC, radar, sonar, and all the other bells and whistles you should expect from a boat built this year.
The vessel will be transporting passengers at a cost of USD 45 (165,000 Shillings) for an onward trip and USD 85 (315,000) for a return Journey, departing from Water Front Beach, Entebbe at 9 a.m. and returning from Jinja at 2 pm on Monday, Friday and Sunday. Uganda did not have a marine vessel that transports people from Entebbe to Jinja before. The marine vessel is also equipped with safety kits including buoys and Lifesaving vests.
