Activity description

Adrift has an unparalleled safety record that is both unrivalled and admired and they aim to keep it this way. Leading the way, Adrift made the first-ever descent of the river Nile in Uganda in 1996 (10 years after first scouting the river) and hit world headlines before introducing commercial whitewater rafting to the country. The company has the most professional and experienced team on the continent with over 30 years of worldwide rafting and adventure experience.

To the amazement of their audience, you'll plunge into the maelstrom and ride the mountainous waves downstream.

The rafts explode through huge walls of whitewater and drift through the warm green pools (27°C) in the equatorial sunshine. This is whitewater rafting at its very best. The beauty of the Nile in Uganda is nothing short of spectacular and unknown to all but the fortunate few who have had the pleasure of standing on its banks.

Widely regarded as the best one day rafting trip on the planet. This is the safest and most popular trip down the Nile, challenging legendary rapids in the hands of those who know the river best.

Wild or Mild
Choose to paddle as part of a team or opt for a softer option and be rowed downstream by the professional guides in the safety raft. Enjoy a mouth-watering lunch on Malubisi island mid-stream in the Nile (this option is unique to Adrift) and relax the beneath the spacious thatched rooves purposely designed and constructed at the start and end points of the rafting experience. There is no better value on the Nile.
