A very enjoyable couple of hours kayaking The Nile. We were four with two kayaks and our guide in his Kayak. Our guide was interesting helping us to find many birds, water lizard monitors, otters and pointed out interesting things along the way.

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!)
