Crazy experience best ever Fun fun fun
Nov. 2021
It was a very good organized trip with safety as key. starting with 1 hour of training with the rafting and explaining the cases and trying it out before the real hard level of rafting. always a choice going for Medium hard or even Crazy level.
There was always a way to go for a less level of rafting with the emergency boat with Kiki.
There were also a lot of safety kayaks in the neighborhood and the water is deep.
you need to do this once in your life to experience it. It is very hard to describe how much Fun this was.
We received about 240 pictures what is really nice for our Memory
A need to do in Uganda !
Fun guaranteed. Teachers were also very funny and serious when it was needed.

Thank you very much that we were able to get this on our trip with Around africa safaris...

Amazing experience
Nov. 2021
I have done rafting adventures all over the world. Nalubale Rafting was by far the most enjoyable experience. Not only were the rapids great but most importantly, the safety and training were outstanding. There was our raft, a 'safety raft', and 3 'safety kayaks' that were patrolling around us. We were thoroughly trained in how everything worked so that when we did our category 5 rapid and flipped, the kayaks were there INSTANTLY to pick us up. Such a basic thing but it made everyone feel safe and excited to do keep going and do another category 5. Oh, and the photos they take for you to remember the day are excellent! Cannot recommend them enough.

Rafting on the Nile with this crew was an incredible, exhilarating yet zen experience. I wish I knew how to spell the two guides’ names and I regret not asking, (I think Ashi and Devis) as they were fun and made venturing into the rapids at the ‘hard’ level a no-brainer. I felt totally safe and just stoked to be there. All the kayakers that helped keep us safe while on the water were really great as well. The stunning views and wholehearted, positive staff make this a must do, it was for sure the visual highlight of my time in Uganda. Looking forward to doing it again! Much love from USA
