Start the morning with a delicious breakfast overlooking the Nile. After an initial briefing from our guide, you will fitted out with life jackets and helmets before heading off down river to the start point. 

Whether staying in Jinja town or at our Explorers River Camp (highly recommended!), we will provide free transport to our rafting start point. Please ensure that we are aware of your pick-up point the day before. 

On arrival you will have the opportunity to meet your fellow rafters and guides. Once down at the river’s edge, you will receive a detailed safety briefing, before launching into the river on our 40 metre water slide, for some practical instruction. 

As the river meanders through beautiful scenery, we guide the rafts into the mighty challenges of some of the biggest and safest white water rafting in the world.

We stop before all the rapids to explain to you the planned route through so as to ensure maximum fun and safety. If at any time you feel you would prefer to join the safety boat or where possible, walk around and then rejoin the raft, this is absolutely fine. Calm stretches of water separate the rapids – perfect for getting your breath back, taking a swim and enjoying the scenery.

Midway through the trip, on one of the flat pools, we will serve biscuits and Uganda’s famous juicy pineapples. Once you have eaten your fill and sated your thirst, we head off for some more action.

Cold beer, soda's and fresh chicken wraps are a welcome reward as we pack up the gear for the drive back to Jinja.

For those of you staying at Explorers River Camp at Bujugali, there is no better way to finish the day than by enjoying the unequalled views of a sunset on the Nile.
