White water rafting or rafting is a tough recreational outdoor activity using an helium balloon or an inflatable raft to navigate a river or any water body with running water. It’s usually done on white water or diverse degrees of rough water, in order to adventure and electrify the raft travellers. Since Uganda is blessed with the mighty River Nile, its running waters have been fully taken use of to accommodate rafting. Rafting on the Nile is thrilling, amazing and captivating because of the wonderful nature of the roaring falls at differ spots of the river.
The contemporary raft is an inflatable boat, consisting of very long-lasting, multi-layered rubberised (hypalon) or vinyl fabrics (PVC) with several independent air chambers. The length differs between 3.5 m (11 ft) and 6 m (20 ft), the width is between 1.8 m (6 ft) and 2.5 m (8 ft). The exemption to this size rule is typically the pack raft, which is designed as a handy single-person raft and may be as small as 1.5 metres (4.9 ft) long and weigh as little as 4 pounds (1.8 kg). For any tourist who is adventurously strong in mind, rafting on the Nile can be accompanied with bungee jumping at the Nile High camp at the Jinja Nile Resort, the only bungee jumping platform in East Africa.
