White-water Rafting, Uganda
Adventure-seekers flock to Jinja to experience white-water rafting on the source of the Nile. It's easy to arrange a day's excursion rafting starting at Bujagali Falls and finishing 20 kilometres downstream at Itanda.
The route includes nine major rapids, of which four are a grade five. In the quieter sections you can float along enjoying the birdlife on the shore of the river, and taking a swim at the side of the raft.
If you'd rather something a little more relaxing, it's possible to do a family float trip which avoids the major rapids and takes a slower approach at enjoying the river.
