Details of Three Day Nile Whitewater Rafting Adventure


You'll depart from Entebbe after breakfast for the drive to the nation's adrenaline capital, Jinja.

Located at the source of the River Nile, Jinja has become an adventurer's playground due to its rugged canyons and churning river waters. Arriving in time for lunch in town, you'll then board a boat and emulate the African Queen with your own trip down the NIle in search of its source.

Along the way, you'll spot a variety of bird life out on the waters, pass the place where Mahatma Ghandi's ashes were spread, and finally come to the point where the mighty Nile finds its origin.

In the afternoon, should time allow, Shadows of Africa can arrange additional activities such as:

  • Bungee jumping;
  • Fishing excursions;
  • Kayaking;
  • Quad biking;
  • Romantic sunset cruise on the Nile.

In all cases, these additional activities attract an additional cost. Speak with your safari expert about your options.

You'll overnight in one of the many beautiful lodges located along the banks of the Nile.


It's a day for the truly adventurous today, as you'll venture out onto the River Nile's famous rapids for what has been described as "the best one day rafting experience on the planet".

Kitted out with all of the latest safety equipment and treated to a safety briefing before you set out, you'll then experience the speed and power of this mighty river as you and your team negotiate its rapids. 

You'll take lunch on one of the islands along the way, and return to your lodge in the late afternoon.


After breakfast, you'll return to Entebbe.
