White Water Rafting

White Water Rafting or rafting is a tough recreational outdoor activity on running water of the river. Helium balloons or an inflatable raft are used to navigate a river or any water body with running water. It’s usually done on white water or diverse degrees of rough water, to adventure and electrify the raft travelers. Uganda is blessed with River Nile on which its running waters are used to ease white water rafting. A rafting adventure on the Nile is thrillingly captivating since the river has wildly roaring falls at its different spots.

The contemporary raft is done in an inflatable boat with very long-lasting, multi-layered rubberized (hypalon) or vinyl fabrics (PVC). Such boat has several independent air chambers. The length differs between 3.5 m (11 feet) and 6 m (20 feet), the width is between 1.8 m (6 feet) and 2.5 m (8 feet).

The exemption to this size rule is typically the pack raft that is designed as a handy single-person raft. And this may be as small as 1.5 metres (4.9 feet) long and weigh as little as 4 pounds (1.8 kg). For any tourist who is adventurously brave, rafting on the Nile can be accompanied with bungee jumping. Such jumping is done at the Nile High camp built near Jinja Nile Resort, the only bungee jumping platform in East Africa.
