Yes we made it. I am writing this from the safety of my office after the weekend's most thrilling adventure. Yes We went rafting on the Nile and we all made it scot free and we loved it. We started the day very early. The five us four of whom were to hit the waters. We arrived 45 minutes to time and the guys of Adrift were waiting for us. the four of us chatted to the guide Clarkey and signed the papers signing off our rights to the river. Its a legal form which they insist on signing so the company Adrift is not held liable for anything that happens on the river. Some kind of indemnity form.

White water rafting on the Nile River was a must do as soon as we heard it was possible. Coming out of Lake Victoria, one of the three sources of the longest river of the world, the Victoria Nile has four grade five rapids and several grade three and four (not to mention the grade sixes we completely avoided) within a day’s rafting distance. (For those not familiar with grading for rafting, grade six is un-navigable; grade one is moving water.) I’ve done rafting in the Rockies involving grade fours and thought it was pretty intense; but now I know that was naïve. It was nothing compared to this. I sat shotgun to start the trip and the first real rapid was one of the more mild grade fives. As you approach you can only see ... read more
