Day 2: white water rafting
After having breakfast at the lodge, we head out to the water rafting starting point for briefing and dressing up for the activity. Rafting on the Nile in Jinja teaches you how to remain calm regardless of the pressure on water. Depending on your expertise in rafting, you are allowed to get to the appropriate rapids (graded 4 and 5). It starts calm and as you go further, there is a rough but thrilling and enjoyable point where you tip over, dive and face the challenge of the rapids.
At the end of the activity, we go for lunch and then set off for Kampala where we arrive in the evening.
