What fun we have had! I guess my husband and I fall into the category of 'wrinklies' - (we certainly won't be seeing 50 again...) and initially I wasn't too enamoured with the idea of 'kayaking on the Nile'. However, we have now discovered the Sit on Top ‘Sunset Cruise' on Bujagali Lake with Kayak the Nile! Our guide Abbra, tailored a couple of hours late one afternoon to suit our needs (basically just exploring, and bird watching). We paddled along the shore line of the lake, around islands, past reed beds, and all on lovely warm, flat water. The gin and tonics from the cool box at sunset were an added bonus (did you realise gin is measured in ‘single’, ‘double’ and ‘Abbra’ measures?!)
We are keen birdwatchers and have spent years in Southern and Eastern Africa but never before seen such a wealth of bird life focused into such a concentrated area. Abbra was knowledgeable about the birds and Kayak the Nile provided a spotter’s guide to the most commonly seen birds on the lake: 4 types of kingfishers, jacanas, storks and several types of heron to name but a few... We hired the sit-on-tops a couple of times more on our own on subsequent days, to continue with our bird watching and photography. I recommend the friendly set-up, the location and the activity to anyone - even those who don’t know much about birds!
