White Water Rafting

For those adventurous travellers who feel the need for a quick adrenaline fix, a spot of white water rafting is certainly the answer.

This activity can be undertaken near the town of Jinja, Uganda. Here, you can spend some time on the River Nile with experience rafting guides. Jinja is in fact home to some of the best rafting waters in Africa including massive grade 5 rapids that will be sure to get your blood pumping. Even if you have never experienced this activity before, the team from ADRIFT will ensure that you are well prepared before entering the water.

Nothing could be better than taming the wildest river in Africa, a torrent of rushing water beneath you, white water waves in front of you and the blazing African sun on your back. Of course, if the thought of the rampant Nile is a little too much for you, enjoy a family rafting experience in the more gentle waterways. Here you can explore the river at a slower pace, taking in the abundant wildlife and bird species found along the shoreline.

All equipment for either pursuit is provided and includes helmets, life jackets, rafts, and oars. You will also have an experienced guide with you at all times. These are the best white water rafting exponents in Africa and they know the Nile river backward.

Other activities in and around Jinja include quad biking, bungee jumping, jet boating, kayaking, fishing as well as boat cruises.
