Staff are well trained and experienced. Detailed explanation regarding procedure how to raft, what to do if the boat flip, safety procedure on the raft. I have a great fun. Just one regret that I didn't bring a water proof camera.

We did the full day rafting with Adrift and it far exceeded our expectations! Our 'captain', Olow was awesome. He was safety oriented, made us all feel comfortable (some on the boat started out a bit anxious) and still provided us with an adrenaline filled day. Thank you!

Our boat instructor DVD was excellent. Took us calmly with humour through basic procedures. Was quite scared as I've never done this, but after Grade 5, Rapid 1, I loved every moment. Very safe and fun to go over board. Highly recommended!

We were five friends and we decided to take the half day package with Roberto, who coached us very calmly and expertly and made it a great experience. I do however, felt that a full day package would deliver a better experience of rafting on the Nile since full day package entails negotiating as many additional 'rapids' as the half... More

This was an excellent trip I took with my two sons, one aged 26 the other 16. It was the second time I had been whitewater rafting and the experience was certainly as good as my visit 3 years ago with a different company. Sadat was our guide who provided his considerable experience to ensure we were all staff but... More

Guided by Captain Tim, went on the whole day raft on the 11/12/2012. It was a life changing experience especially at the 'bad place' where we learnt the hard way the power and majestesty of the Nile! Not for the faint of heart. Tony Gathiuni
