Getting to and from the river is relatively easy but does require a bit of organisation.
There are two main hubs that kayakers use, the Nile River Explorers campsite in Bujagali and the Hairy lemon island:
From NRE/Bujagali it is easiest to access:
- The Silverback to Kibibi section (a great grade 1-3 warm up)
- River run of the ‘Day Two’ or rafting section
- Park and Play at Super Hole (it is also possible to reach Nile Special as well)
The Hairy Lemon is better for:
- Nile Special & Club Wave
- Peace and quiet
To understand where all the put ins and take outs are please come to our office in Bujagali when you arrive. We have a map on the wall and we are happy to explain the logistics from there.
