White Nile Explorer - Ride and Raft
Uganda Uganda

Welcome to Uganda's latest adventure activity, the Nile Explore on horseback - the ONLY riding tour in Uganda. Together with our partners we offer fabulous riding along the source of the world's longest river, the White Nile. We are the first people to introduce horses to this area of East Africa and the response from the local populace has been tremendous. The horses are all beautiful Thoroughbreds, imported from Kenya and beautifully trained, bombproof, fit and strong. 

We pass through local villages, areas of crops and jungle where you will see spectacular bird life, hopefully some monkeys, and if you are really lucky some of the more elusive animals, like mongoose and water monikers. There is also the opportunity to take your horse swimming in the Nile at a beautiful sandy bottomed bay if you are so inclined. You and the horse stay overnight at the Haven, your luggage will be waiting for you when you arrive. Take an afternoon fishing trip, a sunset cruise or just relax with a book while overlooking one of the biggest rapids on the Nile. Fantastic meals await you in the evening. Of course we included a day of rafting on the Nile - if you are not into rafting, you can choose from several other activities that day.
