If you're rafting in Jinja, this is a great place to stay. They arrange your trip for you and bring you back after your day on the Nile. The bar is fantastic - almost hangs over the edge of the river and it gives you a great view of the bungee if you're watching your mates take a dive. The... More

After only my 3rd day in Uganda, had the pleasure of experiencing first ever bungee. I will never forget the incredible hospitality of the team at Adrift. I strongly recommend this experience. The accommodation was wonderful and the food delicious.

Had the best time staying at Adrift in Jinja. We did white water rafting on the Nile, bungee jumping and a sunset cruise while we were there. We did the canoe in the roof challenge at the bar also! We camped and upgraded to the permanent tents. The facilities at Adrift were great! Always hot showers which was a welcome... More

My second time in this place and I want to go again. Accommodation is in tents close to clean bathrooms with best pressure hot showers in the country. Tents are nice but without power for phones and laptops. However this place is on beautiful riverbank of Nile, and they have great bungy jumping tower, not to even mention best rafting... More

Camped two nights at this spot, it was the base camp for the many adventure activities on the White Nile. The facilities were ok and the showers hot. Great views from the bar and a good spot for a drink or two. Unfortunately the bar area does smell of sewerage.

We've been at adrift for the water rafting on the Nile. We stayed at this place for only one night in a dorm but it was really good and clean. The view from the bar / restaurant over the Nile is fantastic. The bar is a very good place to stay after a hard rafting day. The stuff will always... More

This has a great location with tent sites, dorm rooms, permanent tents and chalets. There is a great bar overlooking the river Nile. However, the whole site smelt like sewage the 2 days we were there. Our dorm room smelt musty and damp and couldn't be locked. The mattress and pillow were awful. The staff did a really hard sell...

We stayed here because the place we were due to stay was flooded. It served very well for a filler. The six person room we booked was given to someone else for some reason and when we got it the next night it was extremely cramped and poorly ventilated. The staff were very brusque and loud very early in the... More
