River Nile Before it gets violent and attractive

This is my first post on tb. this weekend with a group of 10 guys i will be headed to Jinja to do something I have wanted to do for a long time.
WHITE WATER RAFTING. I have booked with Adrift the agency and we are confirmed. I will be posting pictures from the trip on Sunday evening. and I hope to have the best time on the warm waters of the River Nile.

I am more that ready. Some people have told me I could actually die from the water but the agency guys assured me no one has ever died on their watch and then my brother who is going with me says we have done more deadly things in our life like drink driving or driving while drunk.
We shall be setting off from Kampala at 7:30 and we hope to be in Bujagali by 8:45 ahead of the bus from Adrift. Then we hope to get on the water by 10:00am till about 6:00pm with a lunch break in between.

Last night i sent out an SMS advisory to the guys to get ready to get wet and

Bujagali The Nile shows its fury
some twisted my meaning as they have girls coming with them.
Later today I am calling the agency to notify them that we are using our own transport so they can give our spaces on their buses to some tourists.
I also hope to tell them to store some more beers as the guys I am going with all love beer to the maximum.

Will we survive this gush?
