Our 2 days white water rafting tour in Jinja is an excellent package for travellersW while in Uganda. Jinja is located in the eastern part of Uganda – 85km away from the capital Kampala.
Established in 1907, Jinja is Uganda’s second largest town and former industrial hub. It is in Jinja where you find the exact spot where Lake Victoria releases its waters to the great river Nile (known as the source of the Nile).
The town is quiet, serene and relatively well planned with a lot of interesting activities such as bungee jumping, horseback riding, quad biking, boat rides, nature walks, sightseeing and of course white water rafting to mention but a few. While on a true Uganda Safari visiting Jinja is one thing you must do.
White water rafting is an amazing activity that teaches one how to handle pressure and remain calm under pressure. The activity takes you rowing through the turbulent sections and rapids of the river Nile in Jinja. The rapids in Jinja are graded 4 and 5 hence offering some of the best white water rafting experiences in the continent. The construction of a new power hasn’t stopped the activity from going on.

While at Mabira, expect to spot a variety of birds and primates like the red-tailed monkey. You will continue your journey past the eye-catching sugar and tea plantations. Finally, you will cross the newly built Jinja Bridge and continue to your lodge for check-in and lunch. After lunch, you will go for a tour of the town of Jinja and then take a boat ride to explore the source of the Nile and the Samuka Island. The Samuka Island is a breeding ground for several species of birds.

This will be a great day of more adventure. You will have morning breakfast at your hotel and head out for white water rafting along the river Nile. The river Nile in Jinja provides some of the best spots for Jinja Whitewater rafting kayaking and water rafting in Africa. The stretch with rapids used to be over 10km long until a power dam was constructed recently. White water rafting in Jinja is divided into two sessions – morning and afternoon. One can choose to go for a full day of white water rafting, but you will only go for the morning shift. The morning session starts at 9am. You will join your fellow rafters for registration and the briefing. After the briefing, you will be supplied with life jackets, helmets and other rafting gear. The activity will go on for about 4 hours after which you will be taken for lunch. After lunch, you will go for quad biking, horse riding and bungee jumping (if open). Each activity takes one hour. After completing the activities, the driver will start the journey back to Kampala.
