“Kayaking with Kayak the Nile is well worth the time and money. I had two amazing days on the river with highly skilled instructors, great challenges and safe environment.”

If you are short on time but want to tackle the best, and biggest, that the river Nile has to offer then we recommend going tandem kayaking.
For beginners who have never been in a boat before you can join our introduction to whitewater kayaking single day or multi day courses. Some of the world’s best introductory rapids lie within a few kilometers of our base at Bujagali, near Jinja.
For intermediate and advanced kayakers the Nile offers a range of rapids and a huge number of ways to run them. Use our 3 day Discover the Nile package to get you familiar with the river at the start your trip so you can make the most of the rest of your time, our freestyle coaching sessions to make sure that you use the opportunity to learn while you are here or come on a 14 day course with our sister company LiLi, and maximise your progression with our coaches to improve your river running, freestyle and all round kayaking.
Add in the near perfect climate (yes, it is nearly always sunny), a jungle river that runs all year round and the Ugandan sense of humour, there isn’t much else you can ask for.
