  The Nile
by ericsas

Amazing experience... it is not possible to describe it with words.. you have to experience it !!!

I booked it in an adventure trips company called "Adrift". It has their offices close to the Sheraton Hotel in Kampala, but you can book as well going directly to the departing point, that is located in Jinja.

There are two choices. Full day or half day. But I advice you to book for the full day. That is till 5pm.

Lunch is included. You'll have lunch in an small "island" in the middle of the Nile.

After lunch you have the opportunity of swimming in the Nile, in an area where there are not rapids. The experience of swimming in the Nile is unforgettable.

The trip finishes at 5pm, after almost 30 km along the Nile, and enjoying several 5 level rapids, the top level allowed in rafting.

The boats are for 8 persons, so this is a very good choice for doing teamwork if you're there for business, as it was my case.

After the rafting, some drinks are offered (included in the price), and then you are driven back to Kampala.

Address: Jinja
