June Kayaking Weekend

Hankering for a weekend out of the city? Our next kayak weekend will be June 18-19 at the Hairy Lemon Uganda and non-kayakers are super welcome to join us for some chilled out island time (http://hairylemonuganda.com/). Once a month, MCU heads to the Nile for discounted lessons with the stellar team at Kayak the Nile (U) Ltd and kayakers of all abilities (especially beginners!) are welcome.

Please note that there is no shuttle available to the Lemon and you absolutely MUST book lodging in advance – it’s an island and they need to plan enough food and drinks for us!

MCU May Kayaking Weekend

Our next MCU kayaking weekend is coming up May 14-15! Once a month MCU heads to Jinja for group discounted lessons with the stellar team at Kayak the Nile. Paddlers of all levels – including beginners – are welcome. It’s always a fun weekend out of the big city! More info and sign up here: http://kayakthenile.com/mcu-weekend-booking-form/

2nd Annual Girls Gone Nile

For the second time, ladies in Uganda are taking over the Nile! The weekend will be about female paddlers supporting each other on and off the river and is a good chance for women to learn from one another while enjoying all the Nile has to offer. The event is open to all skill levels. Non-kayaking ladies are welcome to come hang out but if you learned on the Nile you must have done at least 3 lessons with Kayak the Nile to paddle. Note, this is not an official lesson with professional instructors, this is more of a casual gathering for women to get together to share and build experience and push each other in an encouraging environment.

The only costs involved are if you need to rent kayaking equipment and we’ll split the price of transport. You should bring your own lunch for both days and we will be doing dinner and breakfast potluck style.

SATURDAY APRIL 30

We will meet at Kayak the Nile in Bujagali at 10AM drive to Jenny and Charlie’s land at Superhole. We’ll do a brief Superhole session then the intermediate/ advanced group paddle down to Nile Special. We’ll be cooking out, camping, and living it up at the land.

SUNDAY MAY 1

We’ll make a quick breakfast then head out to the river likely splitting into a beginner and more advanced groups to practice skills and surfing around Superhole. Likely leaving the land around 3pm.
