Detailed Itinerary

Day 1

The transfer from Kampala to Jinja takes approximately three hours. Along the way, you may choose to stop at Mabira Forest, famous for its birds and primates.

Jinja Town is definitely worth a visit for its fading yet still majestic colonial architecture. Jinja has a very welcoming, relaxed feel to the place. The main street is a great place for getting a good cup of coffee and buying some crafts.

Day 2

Widely regarded as “the best one day rafting trip on the planet”, grade 5 Whitewater rafting is the safest and most popular trip down the Nile. The rapids are challenging – but you will be safe in the hands of the expert rafters who know the river best. Your day will start with safety briefings, practice and more practice, before you embark on your down river adventure. The white water is exhilarating, and your nerves will soon give way to screams of laughter. A hearty lunch is provided on one of the islands in the middle of the day. This will be a day to remember. The rafting team will be there to photograph and video all the activities for you (optional charge).

Overnight at Wild Waters Lodge.

Day 3

After breakfast, your driver will transfer you back to Kampala. Unless you have a plane to catch in Entebbe, you’re welcome to visit Jinja town or try out some of the other activities for which Jinja is famous!
