Nile Safari

Ride Overview

This riding experience in Uganda allows riders to immerse themselves in the African landscapes and the traditional way of life of the local people. It is based out of Jinja, a few kilometers from the official source of the River Nile in Uganda. Moving to a variety of well-appointed accommodations along the river and in the rain forest allows guests to experience the full range of what the area offers.

Accommodations

The accommodation is at four separate lodges: two are on the banks of the Nile, one lodge is in the rain forest and one on an island in the Nile.

Meals & Drink

Food on the safari is all European style. Local fresh fruit is organic and fantastic.
