River Nile, Uganda

Philip Wilson and a group of other students from Bath University spent two weeks in September white water paddling on the White Nile in Uganda. They took their own kayaks and paddling gear out from the UK on Emirates Airlines and camped at two sites on the river - Nile River Explorers at Bujagali Falls (pictured above showing Phil "nailing the line") and The Hairy Lemon on a small island in the river. This report gives you an idea of some of the places they paddled and things they did. As well as a lot of paddling they also found time to take a three day camping safari in Murchison Falls National Park where they saw lots of giraffe, antelope, hippos and crocodiles (fortunately none while paddling), and some elephant and water buffalo.
