Ben started Kayaking in 2011 following in the footsteps of his elder brothers Peter and Paul who are raft guides on the Nile. He admired Paul mostly because of his exceptional Kayaking skills as he won numerous freestyle championships in Uganda. As a young man, Ben just wanted to live life like the two elder brothers thus his love for the sport. He dreams of becoming a world champion one day. Ben is versatile as he juggles from Safety kayaking, Oar Boating and Extreme Raft Guiding. If he is not on the river, Ben likes to ride his bike through the dusty villages of Bujagali or play soccer. His favorite rapid is “The Bad Place” because it looks like a “washing machine”
