Take on the Nile

Work hard, Play harder.

eap_volunteer_in_ugandaPlay is not only important, it’s fundamental. The space to explore, learn and develop is such a key part of our development and something that everyone should get to experience. We know this from kayaking and are delighted to have partnered with East African Playgrounds, an organisation with a vision that all children should have access to play.

This two-week package combines the best that Kayak the Nile has to offer with a worthwhile project from East African Playgrounds who, by building and educating around playgrounds, bring modern educational and play theory into Uganda’s schools.

Be under no illusion however, you will go home tired, exhausted and having just had an incredible few weeks with two of the most progressive organisations in the area.

Take on the Nile
  • 6 day adventure on the river
  • Volunteer with one of the most innovative charities in Uganda
  • Prepare yourself for a lot of work and fun

EAP has teamed up with Kayak the Nile to offer the ‘Take on the Nile’ challenge project to provide the best of both worlds rather than half of each.

You will see and experience the best of the river Nile with the company who specialises in showing people a great time, then work on a worthwhile project that has been proven to have a huge positive impact on the local community.
