White Nile River, Jinja, Murchinson Falls, Uganda

26 July – 06 August 2020

Big Volume Play, River Running, Freestyle coaching, Learning about culture, enviroment and wildlife

For everybody who wants to bring their kayaking game up and experience Africa!

The White Nile flows from Lake Victoria in Uganda, over the next 45 kilometres it creates one of the most incredible and varied sections of white water anywhere in the world. This section includes countless channels varying from easy class two to some of the best big volume rapids anywhere in the world. Our Love it Live it guides know them all and have spent many 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 and enjoy the playboating so much that they sell their river running boat and get a playboat!

This trip is not just about kayaking. You will also have the opportunity to visit Soft Power Health, a local organisation set up by Jessie Stone (doctor and pro kayaker) to educate and support local communities on health issues. On your visit you” have the chance to see this in action and get involved for a day or have a village walk with our local guide (optional).

Custom Trip Dates

Custom dates for this trip may be available. Please use the Contact Us form to make an enquiry.

    Submitting this form will not subscribe you to a mailing list but a member of Love it Live it will be in touch to hep you find a world class trip that suits your dates.

    Is this the right trip for me?

    The trip is suitable for people that have finished a basic course, feel stable in a boat, have a solid roll and are looking for the next step and a challenge bigger than class III. The course will help you step up your game under the eye of professional kayakers with a high level of coaching and guidance.

    What paddling gear do I need?

    Kayak – Almost everyone paddles a playboat in Uganda. If you are not sure which boat to bring or you would like to rent, feel free to ask us for advice.

    Bringing a spare paddle is a good idea. It doesn’t necessarily need to be splits as we’re usually close to where we are staying. You could arrange with others on the trip to bring a spare between you. If you need, paddles are available to rent from our sister company, Kayak the Nile.

    A long sleeved rash vest to protect from the sun is a very good idea. Some people prefer to wear shorty dry tops in order to keep the water from filling up your boat. A spray deck with a well fitting waist works ok.

    Sponges are very useful and difficult to come by in Uganda!

    It is warm all the time, if it rains it can get mildly chilly but this is rare, and you will probably still be fine in a 
rash vest/thermal.

    Roof rack straps also a very useful bit of kit that many people over look.

    Also obviously… helmet, spray deck, buoyancy aid, booties and all the normal gear you 
would bring on a paddling trip.

    What clothes to take?

    Don’t bring white things! The orange mud will engulf them.

    Board shorts and t‐shirts fill most people’s wardrobe/bags, though it is good to have at least one jumper/hoody. It occasionally gets a bit cooler after rain. Trousers and long sleeves are a good idea in the evenings, to protect from mosquitoes.

    The temperature in the day averages between 20 and 30 degrees and about 20 at night.

    Are my valuables going to be safe?

    There are safes at both the campsites so it is possible to lock up your things, if you are bringing valuables locking them up is a good idea… things do go missing if they are not looked after. Please bring your own lock to use at campsite locker.

    It is a good idea to keep valuables/sentimental items etc to a minimum. You can’t lose/break/damage what you don’t bring!

    The region of Uganda we will be in is very safe and friendly if you take sensible precautions. Violent crime is almost unheard of.

    Medical assistance prior to the trip

    Make sure you contact your local GP well in advance of the trip. You might need vaccinations to go to Uganda and some take a while to sort out. It is mandatory to present a certificate of vaccination for Yellow Fever on arrival at the airport.

    Don’t forget your anti malarial tablets! Most types of tablet you need to start before getting here – speak to your doctor they will tell you everything you need to know about this.

    Bringing a basic first aid kit is a good idea, you will most likely need it for cleaning and covering cuts! Cuts get infected easily in Uganda if you don’t look after them. Your Love it Live it guide will be carry a first aid kit on river.

    Mosquito repellent and sun cream are important and necessary.

    What is the local currency?

    The Ugandan currency is the Ugandan Shilling, and it is valued at approximately 4750 to a pound and 3700 to a US Dollar. There are numerous ways of getting money whilst in Uganda.

    Perhaps the most straightforward method of accessing Ugandan money is to use an ATM when you arrive. There are cash machines in Jinja and the airport that accept Cirrus, Maestro and Visa. It is possible to withdraw money with Mastercard in the airport and with varying degrees of success in Jinja.

    Either pounds or US dollars can be changed easily enough in Jinja. Smaller notes give considerably worse exchange rate so bring only £20, £50, $50 or $100 notes.

    Obviously, bringing large amounts of cash opens you up to loss or theft so we wouldn’t advise bringing big wads of money.

    Only bring $ notes from the year 2009 or later, they do not accept pre 2006 notes anywhere in Uganda and notes between 2006-2009 are also becoming limited in use!

    DO NOT bring travellers cheques, the exchange rate is terrible and they are difficult and take a long time to change.

    DO bring $50 to pay for your visa on arrival.

    Travel Documents

    You obviously need your passport.

    You will also need your Yellow Fever vaccination certificate.

    We suggest you bring proof of purchase of your insurance as well as a copy of the policy if possible.

    A photocopy of your main passport page, your proof of insurance and any other important documents can be very useful if anything gets lost.

    Camping Equipment

    The accommodation cost included in the trip is for camping, so you need your own tent. If you prefer not to camp, upgrades to dorm beds and more luxury accommodation are available at an extra cost (please let us know in advance if you want any upgrades so that we can reserve the accommodation that you desire).

    You do NOT need cooking equipment or excessive camping gear, we will only be staying on well equipped campsites.

    A head torch or torch normally comes in handy as it gets dark by 7pm.

    And please also bring, a light sleeping bag and thermarest/sleep mat.

    Uganda Entry Requirement

    Uganda have recently introduced an e-visa system which is mandatory for all tourists; it can take up to 2 weeks for the visa to be approved so don’t leave it to the last minute. To apply for the e-visa please visit: http://visas.immigration.go.ug and follow the steps (see accompanying document for further instructions).

    Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry into Uganda.

    Arrival
