Rafting on the Nile is super awesome. This was made even better by NRE!! The day commences with breakfast (basic fruit and eggs + T/coffee) at their Base Camp in Jinja town followed by a humorous briefing by the chief guide Juma (a class apart). After taking your life vests and helmets, rafters are taken to the start point in a bus (45 minutes drive). Without giving away the suspense, suffice it to say that this will be your best and most adrenaline pumping experience for a long time!! The guides are super efficient (special mention of Alex). The rescue team of kayakers and the rescue raft ensure that everyone's safe. The rapids are super and most have 2-3 routes depending on your appetite for adventure. We got flipped twice and it was a memorable experience. There's packed lunch on termination (chicken rolls) plus beer which puts you to sleep on the long ride back. Don't forget your sunscreen !!!

This was one of the best weekends I had while in Uganda. The rafting was so much fun and our guide, chicken legs, made the experience very memorable! The campsite was very beautiful and clean. All the employees were very friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend staying at Nile river explorers camp and doing the rafting!
