Nile Horseback Safaris

image013Join them for a unique ride through a typical Ugandan village and a stunning section along the banks of the Nile. On longer rides you can also experience the views from the hills overlooking the Nile valley, canter through the stunning plantation vistas and relax in the tranquillity of Mabira forest.
They can accommodate riding groups with mixed levels of experience by allowing the riding groups to temporarily separate at certain points on the safari allowing more competent riders to ride at a more advanced pace and those not so confident to stay within their comfort zone.

All Terrain Adventures

Nalubale Rafting

image015Few others have as intimate a relationship with the Nile as the people working at Nalubale Rafting. Between them, the Jinja section has been rafted and kayaked more than a thousand times.

The Nile has played a big role in all of their lives. Most of them met their wives and girlfriends here. They have had the privilege to explore its beauty and experience its greatness. They live and work on it. Because of it, they feel that their lives are full.

“The Nile is not just a river, nor is Nalubale just a rafting company. Both are vital components in our lives and in our lifestyles.”

Adrift

image016Adrift is Uganda’s favourite adventure company offering whitewater rafting, bungee/bungy jumping, jet boating and river surfing on the Victorian source of the Nile near Bujagali Falls in Jinja.

Adrift has an unparalleled safety record that is both unrivalled and admired and we aim to keep it this way.  We thank over 58,000 customers who have safely rafted the Nile with us including Prince William, Ginger Spice, Mikka Hakkanen, Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman.

Leading the way, Adrift made the first-ever descent of the Nile river 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.
