We did a full days rafting with Nalubale rafting and it was so much fun! They were a really well organised company starting with the free pick up from Kampala, it couldn't be easier. On arrival, we paid and then had a safety briefing while eating breakfast and then headed off. The whole day felt very safe but still extremely... More

Nalubale rafting is a great company and we would highly recommend to anyone coming to Jinja. There were only three of us but the team were really welcoming, friendly and experienced. We had a relaxed breakfast of a rolex and a brief briefing, before getting up on the truck for the 45min ride up to the start of the rafting... More

The rafting is an incredible rush yet very safe. The water is warm, the scenery beautiful and the staff were really down to earth and fun. I definitely recommend checking out the Nalubale rafting experience.

Even though we had varying ability levels in our boat, our guide with Nalubale was able to make our day on the Nile enjoyable for everyone. We received breakfast, transport to our rafting site, lunch with a breathtaking view, and drinks for the ride back to camp. Our guide went over safety procedures before we took on the rapids, so...

This was my first time white water rafting and the Nalubale team were excellent - most importantly Ryan our guide (who by the looks of things no longer works there, so I shan't expand on him too much). Even with different guides I have no doubt that the team will still make rafters feel completely aware and comfortable with what... More

Hi there, Thanks very much for your review!! We're glad you had a great time. It is also very normal to be scared at the start of the day. I'm sorry you couldn't understand the guide so well - sometimes when you have two people with English as a second language it can be difficult - however all our guides... More

This was easily the highlight of my visit to Uganda. For $110 each (we got a discount through our guest house in Kampala), my friend and I got transportation to/from Kampala, lunch, and a full day of rafting. Our guide, Tim, was exceptional. He made all of the rafters (some of us first-timers!) feel safe on a category 5 route,... More

I highly recommend doing this at least once in your lifetime! And Nalubale is the best company to go through. They have an awesome staff and hold safety as a number one priority while still having fun! I went into it feeling very scared and left feeling very happy that I did it! It was a ton of fun!
