Activities in East Africa


Worldwide, white-water rafting is one of the fastest growing sports, and in Kenya this is no exception. If you have never experienced the adrenaline surging excitement of a wild river, join, or bring a group of friends or colleagues, and under the command of an experienced river guide, experience the thrills, and sometimes spills, of maneuvering a 14- foot inflatable boat through the waves, twists and falls of a white-water river. White water rafting is one of the exciting activity in Kenya’s tourist list of options and excursions available. We prefer client participation, and hence, unless requested in advance, all boats are paddled by the participants themselves. A guide in each boat just gives the commands and steers the boat. Whether you are a first-timer, family or high adventure enthusiast, you’ll find your perfect white water adventure here with Nile River Explorers. Nile River Explorers isn’t just about white water, when it comes to Jinja and the Source of the Nile, there is so much more. In addition to rafting and kayaking, we offer a wide range of river and riverbank adventure activities as well as accommodation in Jinja and safaris around Uganda. Forget the guide books, if you want up to date information on Jinja and beyond look no further. This is the Source of the Nile, the source of adventure, the source of excitement and information.
