Trip Summary
The White Nile flows from lake Victoria in Uganda, over the next forty five kilometres it creates one of the most incredible and varied sections of white water anywhere in the world. Countless channels varying from easy class two to some of the best big volume rapids anywhere. The Love it Live it guides know them all and have spent many thousands of hours coaching and exploring this river. They will use this local knowledge and specialised big volume experience to tailor the trip to your needs, maximising your progression and enjoyment.

The White Nile is also widely regarded as one of the best playboating rivers anywhere in the world. There are features ideal for learning to surf, for throwing huge aerial moves and everything in between. It is not uncommon for devoted non–playboaters to come to the Nile, enjoy the playboating so much that they sell there river running boat and get a playboat!

This trip is not just about kayaking. For every trip we sell LiLi donates 1% towards Soft Power Health, an organisation set up by Jessie Stone (doctor and pro kayaker) to educate and support local communities on health issues. We will get an opportunity to see this in action and get involved for a day (optional) to see where your money is going.
