Itinerary - Family Float

Family Float - US$30

Family Float - US$30

For the not so adventurous or the not so tall, why not spend your time drifting down the River Nile. Beautiful islands, birdlife and low grade rapids make it the ideal short family outing for both young and old.

Whether staying in Jinja or Kampala we will provide free transport to our rafting meet point, Explorers Backpackers. Please ensure that we are aware of your pick-up point by the night before.

On arrival at Explorers Backpackers, you will have the opportunity to meet your fellow rafters and guides while enjoying a buffet breakfast.

After breakfast you will receive a full briefing of the mornings programme and be fitted out with life jackets and helmets provided by Nile River Explorers.

Starting just below Owen Fall’s dam, we set off along side the Grade 5 rafting. As grade 5 moves along we slow our pace and explore the many islands along this stretch of the Nile. Deep water and flat moving pools offer lots of opportunities for the kids to swim, dive and play.

For those who would prefer a calmer trip, there is an abundance of birdlife and wildlife to search for including Cape Clawless Otter, Red Tail Monkeys, Vervet Monkeys and Giant Nile Monitor Lizards.

We finish at Explorers River Camp at Bujagali Falls just in time for you to enjoy a delicious lunch at ‘the Fork n’ Paddle’ overlooking the River Nile should you choose. And if you have the afternoon free why not combine your float trip with one of the other family activities in the area such as quad biking or horse riding to make it a great family day out.
