Uganda Active Adventures

White-Water Rafting on the Nile River

Partaking in world-class white-water rafting is a main outdoor activity in Uganda, along its stretch of the Nile River around the town of Jinja. Particularly at the beginning of the rafting stretch, the rapids are mostly Class III, although further down the stretch are rapids of Class IV (the most challenging) and even Class V (the most extreme). Adventure tours Uganda routinely include white-water rafting in the itinerary, with either half-day or full-day options.

Best Time to Go

While you can raft down the Nile all year round, the drier seasons (December to February and June to September) are the best times for rafting, as rapids are lower and more manageable. The rainy seasons (March to May and October to November) are when rising water levels make the rapids more difficult and better suited for advanced rafters.

Bungee Jumping at Bujagali Falls

No trip to Uganda is complete without bungee jumping at Bujagali Falls. Of the many locations on the planet where you can leap from a cliff on an elastic cord, the world-class bungee jump site near Jinja tumbles you 44 metres (144 ft) over the Nile, the longest river in the world. Popular with companies running Uganda adventure tours, jumpers can combine this hair-raising freefall with white-water rafting or any of the nearby attractions.

Active Vacations in Kenya

Hiking Mount Kenya

Mount Kenya is Africa’s second highest peak and as such the hike is not for the faint hearted. A gnarled ice and rock peak, the mountain commands breath-taking views. Scaling Mount Kenya allows the visitor to pass through five distinct vegetation zones. The hiking ascent is challenging but the views that await you are magnificent as the sun touches the snowy peaks, causing it to cast a dazzling shine. Mount Kenya is visited by a number of hikers each year and for this reason, hiking expeditions to the mountain are often included on Kenya adventure tours. There are a range of routes to the peak so the hiking experience can be tailored for the proficiency of the individual group.

Best Time to Go

The best time to climb Mt Kenya is in the dry seasons (December to March and July to October). temperature are mild and clouds are rare maximising your chances of seeing the mountain clear views of the surrounding landscape. Weather conditions on Mt Kenya can be changeable at all times of the year. It is best to be prepared for the altitude and weather changes.

Kitesurfing in Watamu

If you are a kitesurfer with an adventurous spirit, Watamu should definitely be on your list. Watamu is a little coastal town located on the southern Kenyan coast with constant winds, warm water temperatures, and a shallow lagoon. These features make the town an exciting kitesurfing location for both newbies and kitesurfing experts. Most adventure safaris Kenya offer kitesurfing tours that provide both kitesurfing lessons or rentals in Watamu.

Best Time to Go

The prime season for kitesurfing here is during the ‘Kaskazi’ season (December to March) and the ‘Kuzi’ (June to September), both of which see stronger and reliable winds. Book your lessons or rentals in advance. Watamu can get crowded during peak seasons.

Active Adventures in Tanzania

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa, reaching a maximum altitude of 5,895 metres (19,341 ft) above sea level. For an avid trek enthusiast, Kilimanjaro is a must on his list of trekking destinations. In this article we will suggest some of the easiest trails that lead to this peak. Located in Tanzania, Kilimanjaro is one of the popular destinations of Tanzania adventure tours, where one can book a Kilimanjaro Safari. Kilimanjaro offers nine route options to the summit and can be hiked in any season. Brief information about some of the easiest trails is discussed below.

Best Time to Go

The best time to make the ascent on Mount Kilimanjaro is between the dry seasons – specifically December to February and July to September. During the dry seasons, temperatures are the mildest and the skies are mostly clear, allowing for the most incredible vistas of the beautiful surrounding landscape and those haunting Kilimanjaro mountains. Of course, during the dry seasons, it is preferred to still be prepared for the elevation and the varying weather conditions that accompany the adventure.

Scuba Diving in Zanzibar

Zanzibar is an archipelago off the East African coast, in the Indian Ocean, due south of the island of Al Mafya and 50 kilometres from the African mainland. It is one of the hubs for scuba-dive experiences across the globe and it is not without reason. The colourful coral reefs, atmospheric waters and abundant marine and sea land life are all factors making for an expansive dive experience. Zanzibar can be added to Tanzania adventure safari, either as a distinctive post-safari or pre-safari experience primarily incorporating the scuba diving experience, but often combined with other water-based activities or cultural experiences.

Best Time to Go

Scuba diving is good year-round, but the dry seasons (December to February, and July to September) are best times to visit as visibility is at its highest and the sea is at its calmest. At these times you’ll be able to see all the colourful fish, turtles and dolphins. Diving trips can be booked here in advance, especially during peak periods (wet season is the slow period).

Rwanda Active Adventures

Trekking Nyungwe National Park

Nyungwe National Park in southwestern Rwanda is a magnificent montane rainforest with a beautiful and unbroken canopy, as well as 13 species of primate and more than 300 species of bird. It’s one of the best trekking destinations in Africa, and it’s unsurpassed when you consider the diversity of the animals, plants and vegetation. Rwanda adventure tours may have guided treks through it, and the range of trails you may follow vary in their attributes and levels of fitness required.

Best Time to Go

Nyungwe National Park, the habitation of 13 different species of primates or 14 if you include humans as a species and hence qualifying for the title of ‘the world’s largest primate’ (apologies for the speciesism) is a great destination for trekking all year round, although weather permits the most reliable trekking in the dry season, from June to September, and mid-December to mid-February. At this time of year the trails are less muddy and hence more accessible. along the trekking routes you have a high probability of seeing chimpanzees, colobus monkeys, and various bird species that have made the forest their home.

Kayaking on Lake Kivu

Here we are on the lake Kivu in Rwanda, on the border with the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and kayaking is a beautiful way to enjoy a beautiful day! We really recommend to one-day stand-up paddling or kayaking on L. Kivu. This beautiful lake is whole flat water, it combines pictoresque small islands and classical hills. It feels like a great way to desert, populate with kayaks and paddles. Stand-up paddling is available in a number of adventure tours Rwanda, typically including other water activities or cultural programs.

Best Time to Go

Kayaking on Lake Kivu is possible year-round but dry seasons (June to September and mid-December to mid-February) bring the best conditions. During the dry season, the weather is most stable, which translates to calmer waters that make it easier to kayak, and clear skies that let you appreciate the beauty of the surrounding landscape to the fullest. The dry season also sees the biggest numbers of tourists visiting the country, so you should book your kayaking excursions well in advance.

South African Adventure Activities

Shark Cage Diving in Gansbaai

A small coastal town in the Western Cape province of South Africa, Gansbaai is known as the ‘Great White Shark Capital of the World’. Cage diving with sharks in Gansbaai offers the chance to observe great whites in their natural environment. Many South Africa adventure tours feature cage diving, usually as part of a package along with other marine activities or coastal attractions.

Safety and Requirements

Shark cage diving operators in Gansbaai operate under strict rules that make safety a priority for all involved, protecting both the humans and the sharks. There is no prior diving experience necessary as the cage does not go under the water, it’s suspended at the surface and participants are supplied with a breathing apparatus. It is important to follow the instructions given by the dive masters and to respect the natural behaviour of the sharks.

Bungee Jumping at Bloukrans Bridge

Bloukrans Bridge, on the border between the Eastern Cape and Western Cape of South Africa hosts the world’s highest commercial bungee jump. The bridge stands at 216 metres (709 feet) above the Bloukrans River. This jump promises action like no other and adventure safaris in South Africa will even offer jump for an added price in their package or include it as part of a two to three-day adventure tour.

Safety and Requirements

The bungee-jumping operation that runs off the bridge is a professional outift. Participants must be launched from a purpose-built platform; they must wear the correct harnesses and honestly answer questions that the jump masters ask about age, weight and pre-existing medical conditions.

Botswana Quad Biking in the Makgadikgadi Pans

The Makgadikgadi Pans in northeastern Botswana provide an exciting quad biking opportunity nestling against the vast plains of the Okavango Delta. These salt flats emulate a Martian landscape and offer some terrific quad biking experiences. Given the flat areas, it provides raw off-road adventure. Not surprisingly, quad-bike outings is a common feature of Botswana adventure tours organised in the Makgadikgadi Pans, often combined with other desert indulgence or wildlife-spotting.

Best Time to Go

Quad biking in the Makgadikgadi Pans is best during the dry season (May to October) when the pans are dry so it is safe and possible to ride. During this time, the ground is hard and you are guaranteed clear, beautiful blue skies, suitable for a thrilling adventure on a quad bike. Quad biking excursions in the Makgadikgadi Pans can be booked in advance of travel too. This is advisable, as it can get busy in the peak season.

White-Water Rafting on the Zambezi River

The Zambezi River that marks the botanical border between Botswana and Zambia is world class white water rafting country. With rapids that run from Class III to Class V, the river is a challenge to even seasoned white-water rafters. African adventure safaris Botswana, for instance, often include white-water rafting in the Zambezi River, but most combine water sports or wildlife with game drives, canoeing or tiger fishing.

Best Time to Go

Low-water season (August to December) on the Zambezi River is advised for white-water rafting. During this season, rapids run more freely and consequently are more navigable. This offers white-water rafting opportunities and a closer connection with the fluids and form of the river; that is, a closer connection with the river itself.

Devil’s Pool at Victoria Falls Zambia

Devil’s Pool – a natural infinity pool that sits at the very edge of Victoria Falls in northern Zambia – allows for one truly hair-raising experience. For several weeks around the end of the dry season when water levels are at a minimum, it’s possible to swim to the very brink of the falls and peer over the precipice into the gently mist-filled abyss below. A trip to Victoria Falls’s natural ‘infinity pool’ – Devil’s Pool – is usually part of a typically action-packed Zambia adventure tour, and the stops come thick and fast: you’ll probably be offered the chance to visit Devil’s Pool as part of your visit to Victoria Falls, or as a stop-off on a safari.

Safety and Requirements

But getting in the Devil’s Pool is neither trivial nor risk-free, so it is only done and overseen in the presence of experienced guides. Visitors are required to follow the guide’s instructions from start to finish, and at no time should the rules be compromised or ignored. It goes without saying, but getting into Devil’s Pool requires to be in good shape and comfortable with swimming in fast currents.
