Itinerary - Wild on the Nile! [TACP012]

Day One

Get Wet, Get Wild, Get Rafting!

Drive from Kampala or Entebbe to Jinja.
Estimated journey time: 2 hrs 30 mins

On arrival at the rafting base begin with a breakfast briefing covering your day on the river, hosted by your experienced rafting guides. You will then be driven to the rafting start point where you’ll receive a safety briefing before launching onto the water. Your adventure then kicks off with a bang, as you manoeuvre through the rocks and negotiate the 12ft drop in the river. Eight major rapids are rafted plus several lower graded runs; all selected to maximise your safety and fun. You will stop before all rapids for an explanation of the planned route through. So if at any time you feel you would prefer to join the safety boat or where possible, walk around then rejoin the raft, this is absolutely fine. Calm stretches of water separate the rapids – perfect for getting your breath back, taking a swim and enjoying the views. At the end of the rafting day you will pull over to the side of the river at the get out point to socialise with the team and enjoy some drinks and snacks.
Estimated excursion time: 6 hrs (4 hours rafting on the river)

Meals included: Lunch, Dinner

Accommodation: Explorers River Camp, safari tents extra.

Day Two

4x4 Quad Biking!

Make your way to the quad biking base on the banks of the river nile for your quad biking adventure. Before you begin you will be given  a safety orientation and some practice laps of quad biking base circuit with your instructors. No previously quad biking experience is required and this activity is suitable for all levels. Depending on your level of experience and ability a route will then be planned for you before you set off with your experienced instructor on your quad biking safari. Quad biking does require a reasonable level of fitness especially when taking longer trips which can last anywhere from one to four hours. Routes include following the banks of the river Nile giving you fantastic views of the river rapids, passing through forests, farmland and stopping off at riverside villages. If preferred, the pace of the trip can be slowed to allow you to stop off at the villages and to give you a break. Whichever route you take you will be able to have a lot of laughs and enjoy your experience exploring the tracks and trails along the banks of the river Nile.
