We will be travelling from source to sea: the Nile's source in Rwanda to where it meets the Mediterranean sea, 6,853km later.
The Nile has two primary tributaries: the Blue and White Nile. This expedition is planning to follow the White Nile.
We'll start in Rwanda, before dipping into Tanzania and then Uganda before crossing Lake Victoria
From there we head up through Uganda to the massive rapids at Murchison Falls
Then it's up to and through South Sudan before heading into Sudan and travel up to Khartoum and until to the border with Egypt
From there it's the home stretch through Egypt until we hit the Med
Sounds easy right?!
As we go, depending on the intelligence reports we get, we might have to by-pass some sections.
There will be different paddlers and people involved throughout the expedition - this is a big team effort
When it comes to the kayaking sections, there will be a group of us at all times
We have a highly experienced rafting guides for Uganda and Rwanda
On top of that there will be additional security and protection as needed (based on the intell we get before setting off and as we go)
Before paddles even that the water there's a team helping out, without which this expedition wouldn't be happening
The craft will vary depending on the section we go through
Through the rapids in Rwanda and Uganda we'll be rafting
The picture on the left is taken in Uganda by Nile River Explorers - FYI this by no means the toughest section we'll be hitting
For the remainder it will be in a folding kayak like the ones on the right here
We will be carrying all our gear: camping gear, food, water, medical and first aid supplies
At various points on route we'll be restocking as needed
