[Uganda] Nile
« on: August 24, 2017, 16:20:12 »
Work in progress

Rapids map: https://www.google.com/maps/placelists/list/1B6BYts4LD9u2r_uHi7gztMH5VBg

Superhole / Babugo - 3
Static Parking place: https://goo.gl/maps/wHePHab9geS2
The location for the parking place is hard to find, you take a turn off the main road down a narrow road (which should be on the map), then take a right down what is essentially a footpath (you should be able to see it on a satellite view of the location above).
You'll be mobbed by kids who'll carry your boat down to the river in return for being allowed paddle it for a minute and will carry it back up from the get off to the get on for 1000 - 2000 shillings.
If driving, pay the kids 3000-4000 shillings to mind the car while you're on the water.
When you get on, the middle channel downstream is Babugo, which is roughly 3+C and is paddled about 15-20 m from the left bank. Eddy out below this and ferry to river right, in the mid-left of the right channel below you is superhole, roughly 3-B. Enter from the eddy just to the left of superhole and have fun.

Bujagali Dam - Kibibi (above overtime)
Get on: https://goo.gl/maps/9DSHPxijNdD2
Get Off: https://goo.gl/maps/tKhG9Z9dvF52
A little warm up run, pretty flat, Grade 2-3, all read and run.

Where possible avoid paying kids during school hours. It only encourages them to miss school.

This is true, there is a 250,000 shilling fine for paying kids Monday - Friday. However it may be practically unavoidable (in our case, for minding the car it was), your mileage may vary.
