What to expect
Our 1 day trip covers roughly 19km of the Nile. We start on the flat water just a couple of kilometres downstream of the Bujagali Dam where we'll run through a comprehensive safety training with you. We start the day with Jaws, Pyramid and Giggitty Giggitty, a great easy section of grade 2 whitewater to train you up and whet your appetite before the big stuff. By the time you get to your first major rapid of the day - Overtime (grade 5) you'll be feeling like a professional!

What an absolutely wonderful experience. The full team were excellent. Even with just 2 of us due to low season/covid we had a full team out to support us. We felt completely safe and in excellent hands. There was constant guidance and plenty of laughs. Time flies so fast but there is plenty of time to relax and have snacks along the way. From pick up to drop off I cannot fault the service. Such a shame we were short on time so couldn't spend a night or 2 at the camp as it was so tranquil, and the food amazing. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Definitely one of the best days of my life
Jun 2021
One of the best days of my life!
Seriously. Grade 5 white water Rafting on the Nile, are you kidding me?
It was a dare because we decided to got rafting while in Kampala, when another Covid lockdown was imposed. Only tourist vehicles allowed outside of Kampala dristrict! Davis from NALUBALE Rafting whom I had written among other companies responded immediately and, demonstrating an examplarary flexibility, said they would still pick us up in Kampala early Saturday morning to we could start the All-Day-Tour at 10 am sharp. All included! Trip included. Accomodation included. Meals included. We could hardly believe our fortune.
Now to rafting. I want to cry of gratitude for this experience and for the team making it so exquisitely easy to delve into that great adventure and making us feel completely safe AT ALL TIMES. (And believe me: those rapids are fearsome).
We swam in the Nile in the intermittent quiet waters, always closely followed by an individual kayaker to watch over our safety (and believe me, they are needed!).
I booked the tour with a friend, and neither of us had ever white-water-rafted before. I am an experienced swimmer, and she is more of a water-contemplater. Still, we were met at our individual capacities and were able to tarvel those extraordinary waters with fantastic drama (multiple falls into the waters, being ejected from the boat and loosing our paddles).
Our terrific guide Isaak stayed in complete control at all times and navigated us to safety with extreme competence and a great sense of fun and humor at all times.
To the whole team: you guys are amazing, your great spirit is contagious and your skills examplary. Thank your for your generosity and this most beautful adventure.

PS: Naturally Covid Distancing Rules were strictly respected and followed at all times

Excellent day on the Nile. It was exhilarating. We spent more time in the water than inside the raft. It made for a wonderful afternoon. The lunch they provided was delicious too!

The perfect adventure.
May 2021 • Friends
Incredible views, even more incredibly skilled guides. Despite rafting through the highest difficulty rapids, I felt my safety was prioritized throughout the entire experience. Would definitely recommend to anyone seeking a thrill. Pro tip though, request prophylactic treatment for schistosomiasis after returning home.

Wonderful!
We had such a blast with Nalubale Rafting- Ash was a really competent guide (I was a guide in Colorado, and was thoroughly impressed with him) and the safety boat paddlers were amazing too- professional and fun. Second time going with them (previously in 2017) and I’ll go again with them next time in Jinga!
