White water rafting was incredible with the Nile River Explorers team! They were friendly, knowledgable, and provided a great experience! The food was great as well, and fresh pineapples for lunch were awesome

I can't recommend doing the rafting highly enough. Absolutely amazing experience! We loved our guides (Assan and Juma) so much, and trusted them with our lives!! We stayed overnight and the hostel was on a really beautiful spot next to the Nile. Definitely do it!

No, you don't need to know how to swim because adrift provides you with life jackets, so in case the boat flips over you will be able to float and the rescue team which is always around will come and help you
