We did a one full day rafting with Nalubale and also used the complimentary two nights at Nile River Explorers campsite. The entire crew at Nalubale was highly professional yet great fun. I was a little scared as I haven't done rafting before, yet I left feeling like I definitely want to try this again. We had an amazing day... More

I just went for a full-day raft this past weekend - and it was incredible. Everything was super smooth and highly professional - from the initial call to book, welcome, breakfast (delicious and a lot!), journey to the start point, the amazingly laid-out lunch and beverages, besides all actual rafting experience! Our raft guide was Charlie, to begin with, and... More

My favorite drop was called The Bad Place! We flipped! It was awesome. This is some of the most fun rafting I have ever done! And it's the Nile river! Awesome!

I would thoroughly recommend rafting in Jinja. I live in Uganda and it is one of the best things to do here, in my opinion. Yes, some may say that since the dams have been built it is less good and that you'll get more rapids on the Zambezi, amongst others, but it's still a great day out. We'd never... More

We were on an Intrepid Travel Tour and by default the woman at Adrift felt she had the right to bully us into booking our Nile Rafting trip with them. Ignore the false accusations that if you book with anyone else Intrepid won't cover you.. If you have travel insurance it doesn't matter. I'm so glad we went with Nalubale... More

I went on 2 separate whole day trips with Nalubale. Both were a huge amount of fun. On the first day, we ended up surfing in the last rapid, Bell's, for about 2 mins, & once everyone was out, the raft remained in there for about another 5 mins. Lots of fun, plenty of adrenaline! I was a little scared... More

If you love thrills and adventure sports White water rafting is perfect for you! My friend and I spent this holiday together, and as we are both Adrenalin junkies, we wanted to try all the adventure sports we could in Uganda and in Kenya. Out of all the Activities we tried the rafting was definitely my favourite, so we went... More
