Adventure Down The Nile

Experience the mighty River Nile from the comfort of a mid-stream island and home to legendary white-water rafting or join the Nile-high club and make a splash!

Day One: Arrive In Entebbe

Guests arrive at Entebbe International Airport and are met by a Sense of Africa Uganda representative and transferred to their hotel. The day is spent at leisure. 

Overnight at The Boma Guesthouse or similar – Breakfast.

 

Day Two: Entebbe – Jinja

The tour departs for Jinja after breakfast to Lemala Wildwaters Lodge. The lodge is at the heart of the Wildwaters Reserve, a group of mid-stream islands in the Nile, widely recognised as the home for the legendary white-water rafting on the Nile. These islands are also home to river otters, giant monitor lizards and hundreds of species of birds.

Nestled in a luxuriant rainforest on its own private island, mid-stream in the mighty Nile, Lemala Wildwaters Lodge is breathtaking.
Thick riverine forest naturally covers the island and each of the ten timber-floor rooms is nestled amidst the forest with private views over the River Nile and its rapids. The expansive, canvas walled, traditionally thatched rooms each boast private decks with elegant free-standing baths and wash basins carved from the local pink granite.

The main lodge is located quite unbelievably on a solid rock peninsula, amidst the rapids of the River Nile. Guests can relax here, cooled by the constant breezes from the racing rapids or plunge into the adjacent natural swimming pool, carved by the river over millennia from pink granite. This is the ultimate location to enjoy one of the last wild areas of the entire Nile.

Overnight at Lemala Wildwaters Lodge or similar – Lunch, dinner, and breakfast.

 

Day Three: Exploring Jinja

Guests enjoy a full day in Jinja. The town is approximately 81km by road east of Kampala, the capital and Uganda’s largest city. It sits along the northern shores of Lake Victoria near the source of the White Nile, Jinja is famous for being the historic source of the Nile River, where it then winds its way through Uganda, Sudan, and finally Egypt.

With a much more laid back feel than Kampala, Jinja has a friendly atmosphere, with warm weather all year round. Jinja is commonly regarded as the adventure capital of East Africa, because of the varied adrenaline activities available in town that visitors can take part in. Local attractions include boat cruises from the the ‘Source of the Nile’ out onto Lake Victoria, Owen Falls Dam, cultural village walks, and a visit to the local Nile Breweries, Uganda’s largest brewery.

For the more adventurous there are optional excursions which include white-water rafting, kayaking, quad biking, mountain biking and horse riding, and the ‘Nile high’ bungee jump. Another interesting visit would be to see the Bujagali Power Station, located about 8km north of Jinja. The hydroelectric facility provides 250 megawatts of electric power, and is the most powerful hydroelectric energy source in Uganda.

Overnight at Lemala Wildwaters Lodge or similar – Lunch, dinner, and breakfast.

 

Day Four: Jinja – Entebbe – International Flight Home

The tour departs for Entebbe where guests transfer to Entebbe International Airport for outbound departure.
