You will paddle until early evening reaching the first night's camp on Nyamatusi Island. There is time to have a bucket bath,
relax and have dinner after a brief safety talk on camping by your guide.


You will be woken early for tea, coffee and biscuits before a short morning's paddle. Breakfast will be served either on the banks of the river or on an island. Afterwards the group will resume canoeing until around midday - stopping for lunch and a brief siesta on the river bank till the midday heat passes. Canoeing will then continue on until early evening. The second night's stop is made at 'G' Camp in the channels.
