Trip Planner:   Africa  /  Uganda  /  Eastern Region  /  Jinja  /  Adrift
Adrift has an unparalleled safety record that is both unrivaled and admired and we aim to keep it this way. We thank over 58,000 customers who have safely rafted the Nile with us including Prince William, Ginger Spice, Mikka Hakkanen, Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman.

Leading the way, Adrift made the first-ever descent of the Nile river in Uganda in 1996 (10 years after first scouting the river) and hit world headlines before introducing commercial whitewater rafting to the country. The company has the most professional and experienced team on the continent with over 30 years of worldwide rafting and adventure experience.
