Highlights
Want the thrills without the spills?
Not all rapids are created equal, many rivers offer a rafting experience that is ideal for families and children and the Nile is no exception. Because of the unique geology of the river with its great expanse and many islands, a high adventure raft trip can put in along side a milder family trip.
Rafting combines the very best elements of a great family day out: excitement, adventure, scenery and great food. Rafting can also be a multi-generational trip. As many as three generations (grandparents, parents and children) have safely paddled down the Nile together! 

Why you'll love this

Remote and unspoilt this is the ideal white water rafting trip for families with children as young as eight or groups who want to experience white water rafting on the Nile without the intensity of grade 5 rapids.
The grade 3 rapids are fun without being overwhelming so there’s plenty of white water action, but also time to sit back, relax and enjoy your surrounds and have the occasional water fight.
The gentle rapids never go above grade 2, making this trip a great experience for younger families and grandparents alike. For those who wish, there is plenty of places for the kids to swim, always under the watchful eyes of our safety kayakers.
This trip can be a gentle float trip admiring the scenery, a crazy water fight or a combination of both, just let your guide know which you would prefer.
Our expert photographers capture all the smiles, so you can relive the adventure for years to come.
