Our 1 day trip covers roughly 19km of the Nile. We start on the flat water just a couple of kilometers 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! Immediately after Overtime comes the choice between the grade 4+ Chop Suey and grade 4 Retrospect, (water level dependent). Then comes some flat water and a chance to relax before Bubugo (Grade 3/4) which though small to the eye often flips rafts over! After Bubugo we go visit the legendary rapid ‘Superhole’ (grade 3) for a spot of raft surfing before continuing down and having some light refreshments during a short flat before the incredible Itanda Falls! Itanda is a mandatory portage, being much too dangerous for us to commercially raft, we do however run the bottom third of the rapid known as the 'Bad Place'. Water level dependent there are 3 line choices here all depending how brave you are feeling!! Vengeance finishes up our day, a grade 4, two-tier rapid which can often offer a flip for those who dare hit the biggest waves! After loading our truck and a short 15min drive we stop at our Riverside base to enjoy a great meal and cold beers overlooking the river! All in all a great way to finish the day. From here we’ll have transport back to wherever you’re heading either Jinja or Kampala.
