water rafting

 

The stretch of rapids along the upper Nile near Jinja is considered  one of the most spectacular places in Africa to go white-water rafting.  Despite the intensity of some of the rapids (grade IV and V), most  people who venture here are first-time rafters seeking an adrenaline  rush as part of their tour in Uganda.

Safety standards are impeccable; with all rafting trips accompanied  by a fleet of rescue kayaks and a safety boar you can retreat to if you  find things a bit too adventurous for your tastes. In addition to the  standard big water runs, there are also less extreme options including a  family float trip.
