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. I have not done riverkayaking before, but I will definitly do it again! If you have the opportunity to go riverkayaking on the Nile with KTN, do it!

I would strongly recommend visiting Kayaking the Nile and getting on the water. I had not paddled for 3 years and was a little rusty but the river is an awesome place for intermediate paddlers to improve (if you can run a grade 3 you will love it). The rapids are big, varied and relatively safe. Kayak the nile instruction is fantastic, I spent the 3 days with Jamie who was ace and enabled me to run the whole river. The team are very friendly, they have a wide range of kit (I’m 6’4” so sometimes struggle getting into boats) and they are very welcoming at the bar!

All I can say about Kayak the Nile is that I can fully recommend it! My two weeks were the best time I spent kayaking so far. Most importantly the guides were very helpfull not only on water but also in land with any requests I had. I will come back next year!!!

As part of a group of 6 UK paddlers I spent two week with Sam, Emily, Jamie and Colin getting some excellent freestyle white water coaching. I had an absolutely superb time and have some great memories, running some of the biggest rapids i've ever seen.

KTN will cater for any and all kayakers including complete novices and the River Nile supplies the best scenery and wildlife. A must for anyone looking for an adventure in Africa.

Kayaking on the Nile River is a wonderful experience. The water is cool and refreshing, you have experienced guides and get to see the beautiful green banks of the White Nile. Lunches are fabulously delicious! They also have kayaks for beginners so that you just sit on the top and have no chance of going upside down, so it is safe for everyone.
