Nile River Explorers

Location: Mgahinga Gorilla National Park

Since 1996, Nile River Explorers has led the way in adventure tourism, with a focus on kayaking and rafting on the River Nile at Jinja.

The White Nile offers possibly the best grade 5 white water rafting in the world, but we offer experiences on the Nile that allow every level of thrill seeker and every age group a chance to enjoy this beautiful river. We are partnered with the finest kayak school on the continent, Kayak the Nile, and are strongly associated with the best of other local adventure tourism operators.

Staffed with a team of highly experienced travel and activity professionals, Nile River Explorers offers the largest range of river and riverbank activities to individual travelers, groups and businesses. We continually bring international trainers to update our staff, and offer these trainings to other local companies as a service. All of our equipment meets and exceeds international safety standards and is checked and replaced regularly.

Our staff are only too happy to answer your questions with up to the minute accuracy as well as seamlessly organize your activities, whether they are offered by Nile River Explorers or by any of our adventure partners in the region.

If we don’t know the answer, we usually know someone who does!
