What you will do

After scouting the Nile in 1986 and again in 1995, Adrift made the first ever descent of the Victoria Nile in 1996 and introduced commercial rafting to Uganda. Rafting has since become the most popular tourist activity in the country. Contrary to popular myth surrounding the Nile, the river is clean, warm and spectacular in Uganda. Unlike the better-known Nile in Egypt, river traffic at the source is restricted to dugout canoes, monitor lizards, rafts and shy river otters.

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.

Choose to paddle as part of a team or opt for a softer option and be rowed downstream by our 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 we have purposely designed and constructed at the start and end points of the rafting experience. There is no better value on the Nile.
