Rafting in Uganda

The longest river in the world, the Nile starts its 6600 km journey to the Mediterranean at Jinja on the shores of Lake Victoria. At its source, the White Nile has some of the most ferocious big water rapids on earth.

Thundering between heavily forested islands, the White Nile prides in being among if not the best part of the nile with the highest volumes of water.

It is not all adrenalin pumping action. While on the river you will also get to see the local wildlife, which includes hippos, and a variety of birds. You will also have the chance to have a swim on some of the calmer stretches of water. You can enjoy a one-day trip , a short distance from Jinja and ends at Itanda, 18 kilometres away. The water levels at the source of the White Nile are subject to little seasonal variation, so rafting is excellent at any time of year. The constant volume of water guarantees one of the most exciting one-day rafting trips in the world. The legendary rapids 'Total Gunga', 'Overtime' and 'Itanda' will live long in the memory.

Our trip includes transfers from Kampala, a hearty lunch on a forested river island and nine major rapids no-one else dares to run!
