Six thousand, eight hundred and sixty three kilometres.
This is where it all begins…
A trip to Jinja, Uganda, is not complete without the river Nile, and we believe that the best way to explore the world’s longest river is on the water itself.
Away from engines, noise and under human power – Kayak the Nile is passionate about this symbolic location and honoured to enable you to experience it.
Tick kayaking off your bucket list on the world’s longest and greatest river.
Take on huge whitewater in a tandem kayak.
Jinja is home to the official Source of the Nile. Join us in what we believe is the best way to experience it.
Kayak the nile and Brussels Airlines have teamed up to help make it easy and free for kayakers to transport their kayaks to Uganda.
Brussels Airlines will allow a kayak to be checked in as checked luggage, in addition to the standard 2 x 23kg bags already allowed.
As part of this special deal with Kayak the Nile, Brussels Airlines will also allow this kayak on for free if you are flying either to or from Uganda so long as you book it first either through us or with the Brussels Airlines Uganda office. You can get your kayak written onto you ticket in advance to relieve any check in stress!
If you are traveling on any other routes, such as North America to Europe, then Brussels Airlines will still accept kayaks, but will incur a standard charge of 200 € each way.
