Before the teaching comes the screeching

For many of our volunteers, their 6-12 weeks with Volunteer Uganda is their first in Africa. For many more it is there first time in Uganda.

Before the serious work of teaching in schools begins many choose to mark this with another first – bungee jumping into the Nile and then rafting down it through some of the toughest rapids in the world.

With Adrift of the Nile, volunteers can launch themselves – with bungee rope attached – from a cliff 44m above the Nile. It may not be the highest in the world, but it is certainly one of the most beautiful.

And if that isn’t enough excitement for one day, they can then raft down 8 Grade 5 rapids over 22km of the world’s longest river.

Quite a start to their African adventure with Volunteer Uganda!
