British royal heir Prince William has spent three secret, action-packed days white water rafting on the RIVER NILE in Uganda.

The hunky 21-year-old travelled out to BUJAGALI FALLS for the adventure after convincing his father, Prince Charles, and grandmother, QUEEN ELIZABETH II, that the waters are among the safest in the world as the river bed has no rocks.

And shy William asked other tourists to respect his privacy and not take his photograph.

Royal aides booked the trip for $64 (GBP40) a day including accomodation, meals and drinks.

JASON ROUSSOS, manager of the campsite where the prince stayed, says, "William came with an entourage of 11 people, including his bodyguards, and camped at EDEN ROCK RESORT.

"He loved the campsite. They had a beer or two."
