Owner description: From mild to wild, novice to expert, there's something for everyone at Kayak the Nile. Take a relaxing 2hr kayak cruise or go for high adrenaline with our grade 5 tandem kayak trip. Learn to white water kayak with Uganda's most experienced and qualified coaches or improve your skills on the Nile's big volume rapids that vary from grades 1 to 6! Whatever your time frame, or your ability level, there's a kayaking opportunity here for you, so you too can experience Nile's natural beauty and its wild white water rapids.

My friend and I have been paddling for several years but we decided to book the Discover the Nile kayaking package as a way of getting introduced to the river. We are happy to have had local guides show us the ropes (literally in the case of the Nile Special wave). After three days with guides, we felt much more confident about all the lines, logistics of getting to and from the river and how to use the rope at Nile Special. The guides are very knowledgeable and friendly, and the coaching was especially helpful for kayakers with less big-water experience. Thanks again.

Thank you for the review, Edward W! We're happy to hear you enjoyed our 'Discover the Nile' 3 day intro to the river, as you found out, this is a great way for experienced kayakers to learn the multiple lines, rapids and channels here and get themselves set up for the rest of their time on the river.

I'll be sure to pass your compliments on to the rest of the team,

Thanks again,

I don't usually do this, but for somany reasons feel compelled. My family and I particiapted in a kayaking lesson and excurion with Kayk The Nile and it was very enjoyable. What I want to complelement most was how easy it was to communicate, choose a date, find out anout the specifics of offereings, get ferryied over to the orientation point, and have a blast on the water. We even got agreat refreshing drink at the end of our efforts based on the package we chose. Check them out. They do Rock!

Surely the best place to learn and practice white waters ! I had an amazing time there, learn the roll in 2 days thanks to Colin, went through awesome waves with Jamie.
The Hairy Lemon is a very beautiful place. Ask for the frisbee golf there...

Having learned to kayak on my own, it was refreshing to receive some quality instruction from world class paddlers who are passionate about teaching. My progress was exponential and it's amazing how much I learned over the course of just several weekends at Kayak The Nile. I have paddled with Collin, Jamie, and David and all three guides were friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and extremely helpful in teaching the technical aspects of kayaking. I would highly recommend KTN to any intermediate level kayaker who is looking to progress to the next level.

I spent a fantastic weekend here at the end of a military tour in the DRC. From start to finish it was well organised, friendly, lively, crammed with professional experience and totally flexible. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
