Personal flotation devices/jacket (PFD) will be given to every client before we approach the river bank, regardless of your swimming expertize or prior experience rafting/tubing. Please have your jacket secured and snug, with all buckles and waist belt fastened. Your flotation device should be worn at all times until you are safely away from the water.
The Nile River is the longest River in the world and the area we raft in has rapid, rushing water, which means it’s not a good idea to try to swim out of danger, always just float downstream until the water calms. Download PDF with Safety Info

We run the Nile in 16-foot self-bailing rafts, with crews of up to 8, but usually 6 or 7. You and your travel companions may be teamed up with people you don’t know. Not to worry, you will be under the instruction of one of our experienced guides who boast of over 10 years’ experience in this river. This is a great opportunity to meet new people and create lasting friendships. It is an incredible shared experience, on an incredible river. The teamwork and exhilaration of a day on the Nile simply can’t be explained; until you’ve “ticked it off”. However, you may opt for a PRIVATE RAFTING TRIP if you feel uncomfortable with this arrangement.
We recommend light outdoor sandals or trainers, shorts and a t-shirt. A cap can also be worthwhile beneath the helmet. Please note due to temperatures and the sun please bring sunscreen.
TMU provides drinking water on all rafts. At the end of the trip, you will be served with a munchy lunch.
While on the river, videos and photographs will be taken by our strategically locationed photographers. Photos are free. Videos will be availed to you at a small processing fee.
TMU advises clients to leave cameras, passports and valuables at their place of residence. Should you choose to bring your valuables along, we may secure them for you at our discretion and you can claim them back after the trip. TMU reserves the right to accept or decline securing items from customers. The company or its agents are not liable for damaged or lost items.
Sit back, relax and let our seasoned team give you the experience of a lifetime.
