About White Water Introduction

We know that White-water rafting is not for everyone and there are many out there that want to see the river and rapids, but not risk a potential flip and swim! Our White-water introduction is perfect for you and will take you through some of the most scenic parts of the river Nile, allowing you to get up close to some of the largest rapids and falls on the Nile, without the worry of ‘going under’. You will enter the river just below Kalagala Falls and next to Wildwaters Lodge. Here you will be able to drift next to some of the most conserved riverine forests on the Nile and be able to learn about the river flows, currents, eddies and water features that create some of the most renowned rapids in the world. Just below Wildwaters Lodge you will be able to view the complex and enormously exciting ‘Hypoxia’ rapid. This rapid is almost inaccessible and only from the river can you enjoy its explosive character. With a couple of river features to follow, you will then pass by the Buganda Kingdoms sites of cultural and national importance and then drift pleasantly down towards the base of Itanda Falls with your guide paddling you and teaching you about our river operations, safety and how we have guided thousands of people safely on the River Nile for the last 30 years. After this and arriving at our Malubisi Adventure island, located between two Grade 4 rapids called ‘Vengeance’ and ‘Novocain’ you will disembark on the island for a BBQ and talk that will introduce you to the 2 rapids and allow you to view rafters and kayakers in action on the rapids. This island allows you the choice of 2 options, you can either raft with your guide through ‘Vengeance’ or you can portage (walk) through the island and meet the team below the rapid! The choice is yours!

About Adrift Uganda

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 area of the Nile in Egypt, river traffic at the source is restricted to dugout canoes, monitor lizards, rafts and shy river otters. Adrift is the most popular and respected adventure tour operator in the country. From the Adrift river base on the banks of the Nile our professional international crew offer a wide range of adventure options to suit all tastes. These include whitewater rafting, family rafting, bungee jumping, kayaking adventures, community conservation projects, community walks, mountain biking, and team-building. For 30+ years Adrift guides have been leading river descents on every planet except the frozen one and our safety record is envied and unequalled. Safety is paramount in each one of the activities we offer and to date over 40,000+ guests have chosen to raft safely with Adrift.
