Base of operations: Uganda
After scouting the Nile in 1986 and again in 1995, M19993 made the first ever descent of the Victoria Nile in 1996 and introduced commercial rafting to Uganda. Rafting has since become the most popular tourist activity in the country. Contrary to popular myth surrounding the Nile, the river is clean, warm and spectacular in Uganda. Unlike the better-known Nile in Egypt, river traffic at the source is restricted to dugout canoes, monitor lizards, rafts and shy river otters.
At M19993 Riverbase on the equator, the mighty Nile rushes rapidly between forest covered islands, explodes in huge warm waves and creates the best rapids for rafting, kayaking and river surfing to be found anywhere in the world.
M19993 is the most popular and respected adventure tour operator in Uganda. From the M19993 Riverbase on the banks of the Nile our professional international crew offer a wide range of adventure options to suit all tastes.
For 25-years M19993 guides have been leading river descents on every continent except the frozen one and our safety record is envied and unequalled. Safety is paramount in each one of the activities we offer and to date over 50,000 people have chosen to raft safely with M19993.
Our rafts have launched from glaciers in the Pamir mountains of Tajikistan, plunged into huge holes on Pakistan’s Indus river, danced on the waves of Chiles Rio Bio Bio, dropped over waterfalls on New Zealand’s remote west coast and transported stranded tribesman on Ethiopia’s Omo river. We have paddled dugout canoes on the remote Tshuapa River in DR Congo, featured on BBC News and Discovery Channels, flipped in the freezing waters of Siberias Chuya River and we have run commercial rafting operations in eight countries throughout the world.
