1-Day White water rafting on the Nile

1-Day White water rafting on the Nile is a leisurely open-air sporting activity using a hot-air balloon to cruise over a river or any water body with flowing water. Whitewater rafting is commonly done on white water or varying degrees of rough water, in order to explore and captivate the raft travelers. Uganda is naturally blessed with River Nile and its falling waters have been entirely taken use of to support white water rafting. White water Rafting on the Nile is electrifying, astonishing, and fascinating due to the magnificent nature of the deafening falls at different spots of the Nile River.

What it is like

The modern-day raft is a helium balloon boat, entailing very long-lasting, multi-layered rubberized (hyperon) or vinyl fabrics (PVC) with numerous autonomous air chambers. The size differs between 3.5 m (11 Ft.) and 6 m (20 ft.), and the width or thickness is between 1.8 m (6 Ft.) and 2.5 m (8 ft.). The exception to this size rule is characteristically the packet raft, which is premeditated as a manageable single-person raft and may be as small as 1.5 meters (4.9 Ft.) long and weigh as little as 4 pounds (1.8 kg). For any tourist who is daringly strong in mind, rafting on the Nile can be escorted with bungee jumping at the Nile High camp at the Jinja Nile Resort, the sole bungee jumping podium in East Africa.

In standard paddle rafts, everybody joins as a member of the water squad and a skilled guide instructs the team. They coach paddlers enthusiastically on how best to delight in themselves on the water. And also on all phases and features of safety. As well as the use of safety escorting kayaks that convoy every raft excursion on the Nile waters. The skillfully-trained safety kayaks are world-class paddlers who competently cruise their little boats through the precipitous waves of each rapid ahead of the rafts. When rafts downturn and people are erode overboard, they are nearby to offer support in getting rafters back to their boats.

How its done

The Nile water excursion begins calmly and the first few kilometers give the raft controllers a chance to train their crews wholly on all aspects of the Nile rafting process. The process of rafting on River Nile Uganda continues and involves facing strange falls across the bendy rocks where rafters dive and enjoy fully. On a good note, the river also has a point of relief where the water flow is so calm. There is nothing fairly like a morning on the Nile for inspiring one’s hunger. Delicious and juicy pineapples, colossal avocados, crisp bell peppers, and tasty carrots are all available in nearby villages for rafters. Heated ham, Fresh bread, salami, and salacious tomatoes altogether combined pleasantly to satisfy even the most voracious appetites from a morning of fresh air, wild water, and sunlight.


Later after a delicious lunch, the rafts enter Wild waters Reserve. It is a private safeguarding inventiveness to safeguard the remarkable flora and fauna of the mid-stream islands of the Nile. There is more time amongst the rough water and the rapids on the river Nile become bigger and more outstanding. The Energetically wild rapid, the rafts increase over to a 4.5-meter waterfall. Sprint downstream to the ever-marvelous show then shake timidly at the ‘BAD PLACE’. At Itanda, the young Nile folds too much supremacy for the rafts. You are to portage around the topmost point of the rapid on land. Then reflect on the huge hole at the bottom.

The bad place

The BAD PLACE is voluntary but those interested in rafting via it, have minimal chances of remaining on the hot-air ship. While at ‘The Bad Place’, the raft portrays a charisma of a wild horse riding for the first time. It often waves in the enormous floating waves (possibly the main hole. This is also raft commercially anywhere in the world) and roars, bucks, and kicks like pedigree saddles for the first time. It makes the most spectacular video footage as riders are often in the air before hitting the racing current and going downstream to the calm pool below.

For the timid rafters, they have an option of jumping over to the escorting service boat. It is not to overturn and doesn’t go through the bad place waters. After covering about 30 kilometers on the River Nile Water, you will accomplish the game in the evening and drive back to Kampala.
