5. East Africa's first Jet Boat
Tourists in Uganda are now subjected to one of the most adrenalin pumping rides to be found anywhere in the world! In December 2008, Adrift has created another world-class adventure by launching the WiWild Nile Jet at the source of the Nileld Nile Jet at the Source of the Nile. The 11-seater jet boat is specially designed and built to race up and down the Nile rapids, buzz frighteningly close to the riverbanks and give participants (of all ages) the ride of their lives! Cruise the Nile at speeds of exceeding 90 km per hour and make spins and turns of 360° in walls of spray.
