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 went with my friends and we enjoy a lot !! The atention is really nice, we had a small but good enought training before to start the rapids, the guide knows what he does and made us feel secure plus the guys in the kayaks, all of them made our trip amazing. We saw a few people from another... 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!

We are so glad that we opted to do the trip with Nalubale. Tim (our guide) was very professional and experienced. Safety was taken very seriously but didn't get in the way of us having a fantastically fun day on the Nile. I wish I had time to do it again...

We had a great experience in the Full Day Rafting with Valuable Rafting Company. My wife was very nervous but the staff was able to put her at ease! I´ve rafted in many places and I can say that these guys are one of the companies with more safety measures available: They had one safety Kayak for each customer on... More

I have absolutely fallen in love with Nalubale Rafting. During my two visits to Kampala (the last one of which I went during April 2015), I had the opportunity to go rafting on the White Nile and both times, I went with the awesome crew at Nalubale. The first time was due a friend's recommendation and the second was because... More

We did a full day of rafting with Nalubale and it was absolutely perfect. We had a great guide and crew and felt very safe the entire time. Before each rapid they tell you exactly what you need to do and what you should do in different scenarios (flipping, falling out, etc.) Definitely definitely recommend this company for anyone that...

I am not sure what to say that hasn't already been said... I love that they are smaller, they are able to cater to their customer and give a personal experience. We didn't have a full boat, and it wasn't a big deal at all. From the moment I arrived I felt welcomed and at ease. They supply some breakfast... More
