Great one day trip

We went on a full grade 5 day trip with Nell and the team. It was a great trip and the guide and staff were very professional. The rafts could do with some maintenance though!

Rafting on the strong waves was interesting and great, the guides took us through the process even us who never knew how to swim we were not scared at all, we had the great experience just in one day.

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

Nalubale, Owner at Nalubale Rafting, responded to this review

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
