Dates: 5th – 8th September 2019
Ever Heard of Nyege Nyege? This is the greatest Music Festival in East Africa. Nyege Nyege means the Fantastic Feeling of a sudden uncontrollable urge to Move, Shake or Dance!
With 5 different stages and a star studded line-up of over 300 musicians, you cannot afford to miss this festival!!
The festival is hosted at a village on the shores of River Nile in Jinja, Uganda. Jinja is the adventure capital of Uganda. Being the source of River Nile, this rumbling monster offers the perfect getaway for water sports amongst other exciting attractions. For this tour we shall camp at the adrenaline packed and safe adrift village as we tour Jinja and raft during the day and visit the festival in the evening.

Day Three (7th September): Extreme Adrenaline Day & Festival Tour
Today you wake up early to great safari Breakfast by our safari chef at the camp. Then you get to choose among a wide range of adrenaline as well as chilled activities to embark on. You can choose to do:-
Full Day Grade 5 Rafting: Spend the day with other team players in a combined raft rattling down the white furious rapids of the Nile. A buffet and party awaits you at the end.
Extreme Rafting: If team rafting is not exciting enough then this is it. Just you, a guide, and a small inflatable raft against the mighty rapids of the White Nile.
Extreme Raft River Board: This trip combines rafting and river boarding, so that you can rest the flat water sections and safely raft the few rapids that are considered unsafe for river boarding. If you’re up to it, try your hand at river surfing on a standing wave.
Bungee Jumping: Take a leap over the 45m Platform over the Nile and if you are crazy enough you can choose to touch the water.
Tandem Kayaking: Take a step of faith and hurtle down the Nile on a small kayak with a guide.
