As the director of Huge Experiences kayak camps, high school and study abroad programs and owner of Pucon Kayak Hostel I have worked closely with and contracted Stephen Wright as a coach over the past six years. I can easily say I wish he were coaching for my programs at this exact moment.
While, most kayakers know Stephen as an excellent ambassador and athlete they may not understand his dedication to personalized instruction.
If you are a boater looking to improve your freestyle skills then you can trust that the combination of Stephen on the White Nile may be the world's best option for learning in a safe environment. He's got the experience to observe you and help you adjust and improve your skills in a short period.
I looked at the cost of this 13 day program at $us1435. First, as a leader of all-inclusive programs this price point is underpriced. Typical, going rates for all-inclusive programs with quality coaching is $2,000 for 10 days and it goes up from there. Thus, as a friend and supporter of both Stephen and Emily and Sam with Kayak the Nile I wanted to take a moment to illustrate the real value in this program. Giraffes, elephants, warm smooth waves, Stephen Wright coaching and persona... If you have the time then I highly recommend beginning your flight research to Uganda.
Note- this was not a solicited endorsement. If you know Stephen and the folks at Kayak the Nile you'd certainly agree.
