Golf safaris in Africa are on the rise and offer the well-off traveller a perfect blend of adventure and relaxation. Enjoy all the challenges and rewards of golfing under a blue African sky. The scenery is fantastic; the course facilities are first-class, and accommodation is easy to arrange. But the success of our African golf safaris lies in our ability to combine a first-class golfing experience with what Africa is most famous for: big game safaris. Many of our recommended courses are located close to national parks and game reserves. Malaria-free, Big 5 safaris are also available and are ideal for families – golfers or not!

Horseback riding is without a doubt one of the most exciting and adventuresome ways of visiting Africa: imagine yourself riding along on horseback while taking in the scene of great herds of elephant, buffalo, wildebeest and antelope as they move across the plains, galloping behind herds of zebra in Masai country or cantering alongside a journey of giraffes in search of a delicious Acacia treat! 
Horse lovers can enjoy half-day or full-day horse safaris in Uganda and, if you’re up for days in the saddle, multi-day luxury mobile horse safaris in uganda. The companies that we recommend train their horses, which are used to riders of different experience levels, to handle a variety of situations, which can be quite different depending on the terrain and the wildlife.
A typical day on one of the multi-day horse safaris consists of anywhere from four to seven hours in the saddle, covering a distance between 15 – 30 miles a day depending on the terrain and animal sightings. Riders have the possibility of going on game drives, bush walks and night game drives during their mobile safari as well as to add a stay at a luxury lodge before or after the riding safari.

You need no previous rafting experience and for more adventures, paddle rafting on the Nile is probably the most exciting thing you will ever do. With Above and Beyond Safaris you will experience true white water rafting and bungee jumping in Uganda.

Bungee Jumping

Bungee jumping all started with the people of Vanuatu in the pacific. These people had been throwing themselves from huge towers for centuries with nothing more than a few vines attached to their feet. It is probably the fastest growing adventure sport in the World.

In Uganda, bungee jumping is located at Jinja Nile Resort, Jinja. The jumper is attached to a specially constructed latex rubber cord. He or she then dives from the platform (over 11 Storey above the river) rushing rapidly to touch the water then bouncing back into the air creating a huge buzz of adrenaline and rounds of applause from nearby onlookers.

The specially designed bungee platform suspended 44 meters above the stunning source of the Nileoffers no limit to the fun you will have on the Nile.
