We enjoyed a wonderful day of Kayaking the Rapids on the Nile. Our two guides were a lot of fun and made this whole experience memorable. But what counts most is that we felt super safe the whole time, even during the Grade V rapids....More

It was amazing going kayaking on the Great Nile. Its an experience i longed for to do when in Uganda. I had a very nice and experienced guide. Couldn't have had a better day than this awesome experience. Highly recommended.

Awesome opportunity to kayak on the Nile, on an interesting stretch with plenty of birds to spot. A little hike down the hill from the office, you carry your life jackets and paddles and they’ll carry the kayak. Plenty of other options available too!

Hi Patrick - Yes, it has been complete by kayak and raft. I highly recommend checking out Hendri Coetzee's book 'Living the Best Day Ever' for his memoir of the epic trip (and plenty of other adventures!)
