  • If you want to Kayak on the Nile, this is the place, and these are the folks. Modern and we'll maintained equipment. Professional guides and staff. Excellent location to launch off from, whether yor after whitewater or just want to explore the gentle parts of the river and enjoy time on the river. I liked that lessons are available for those still learning.
  • EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE!!!! NALUBALE KAYAKING: RIDING TIDES, ESCAPING FALLS, SWIMMING IN THE GREAT RIVER NILE, FUN LAUGHTER & GREAT COMPANY..... EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME!!!!!
  • I rented a kayak for a day, and did the white water a day later. The kayaking on the flat Nile was nice, I am also experienced in that. The white water kayaking was considering of an introduction on the flat Nile, and some white water kayaking in the midday. Since I wasn't experienced in it the instructions were crucial. The instructions on the flat waters were ok, but regarding the white water they were minimal. Mainly pedal hard and follow me. Afterwards I had the feeling so much more could have been done to learn how to kayak on white water.
