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.
