White-water Rafting on the Nile River
The source of the Nile is one of the most spectacular white-water rafting destinations in the world and rafting trips on the Nile is a highlight of a travel to Uganda.
In Jinja you can expect long, rollicking strings of Grade IV and V rapids, with plenty of trills and spills. Despite of the intensity of some of the rapids, most people who venture into rafting trips in Jinja are first-time rafters; it is a perfect opportunity to get out of your comfort and try something adventurous. All rafting trips are accompanied with a fleet of rescue kayaks and a safety boat you can retreat to if you find things to hairy for your liking.
Besides the standard bid water runs, there are less extreme options for those who don’t want to be flung into the raging water. Family float trips are offered, which bypass the big waves and are guaranteed to garner squeals of delight from young kids.
