The amazing whitewater and standing waves in Uganda's White Nile are currently threatened by the construction of the Isimba dam. In a last ditch effort to save some of these world-class whitewater spots, Mariann Sæther and Nouria Newman have come to Uganda to ride some of the river's best waves and rapids to help raise awareness of the vibrant kayaking industry that the river supports. Follow these two intrepid ladies into this kayaking paradise as they embrace the culture and people along the banks of the White Nile. Mariann and Nouria spent two weeks living in a small island in the White Nile to get the footage for this episode. They took turns filming on Mariann's Canon 7D and a GoPro Hero 3. Don't be fooled by the bucolic surroundings though, they had fantastic hosts and their biggest problem behind the scenes was making sure all their batteries stayed charged.
