Rafted on a Saturday with Ryan as our guide and the wonderful team of experienced rafters/kayakers. Everything was absolutely excellent, starting with a timely pick up, breakfast, coaching and safety briefing. The team made sure we felt safe and happy. Ryan was very engaging and explained everything we had to know about the river and the rapids. Felt very comfortable... More

The team are experienced and well qualified. I loved the fact that the management are working hard to get the already well experienced local guides... More

Spent the day on the Nile with Ryan and the team from Naluable Rafting Jinga. The team were very organised, professional and friendly. Ryan was our rafting guide and he was very professional. He gave very clear explanations on raft safety and in preparing everyone for prior to attacking a rapid. He also imparted his knowledge of the River and... More

Excellent day, excellent guides. The most well organised crazy fun I've had in ages. Lovely lunch at a really cool spot overlooking the river. Extreme experience, terrifyingly epic. Thoroughly enjoyed every single second. Just do it.

Had an awesome day with the folks at Nalubale, all very smooth from the ride out to Jinja, breakfast, safety briefing and then an epic day of rafting. Great group of guides, definitely recommend the experience, a great value and well worth the trip.

As soon as I knew rafting the Nile was an option in Uganda I knew I had to do it. I researched the different options on TripAdvisor and was surprised to find that Nalubale Rafting had a perfect score. Which isn't hard to believe since the staff were fun yet always ensured we all felt comfortable and safe and needless... More

This day long experience was just about everything you could ask for. Every member of the team was outgoing and fun (especially our guide Ryan), the equipment and preparation was solid and made you feel safe without taking too long, and the rapids were just amazing. Ryan gave us plenty of information and instruction, listened to our requests for rafting... More

It was a great rafting experience with NALUBALE, Nile river rapids downstream from Jinja are crazy. The crew is professional, very friendly and the spot has amazing views on Uganda's Nile river shores. We (2 friends and I) strongly recommand it. However, we've paid 80$ for pictures we've never received despite promises.

Hi, Thanks very much for your review - we're glad you had such a great time rafting!! We're really sorry about the photos - the whole photo operation has been going through a few changes in the last month and there have been a few teething problems. All these problems have now been sorted but we're aware that quite a... More

Rafting on the Nile with Nalubale was THE highlight of our Uganda trip. Despite my initial concerns about the dangers of white water rafting, we felt really safe and in competent hands once we got on the river. Our guide trained us thoroughly before our first fall and the entire day was a blast. Falling in the water is actually... More

I was a little nervous to take on class 5 rapids with no rafting experience, but Nalubale made it feel very safe. The whole day was great fun and they take good care of you- including good food at lunch and a well-earned beer at the end.
