Highlights

Just 95kms out of Nairobi, the Tana River has some excellent rapids. A rafting trip on the river offers a combination of 16 kms of White Water (up to Class V in season) and 12 km of clear river ideal for calm drifts through spectacular scenery.

This is usually done on different degrees of rough and calm water, in order to thrill and excite the passengers. Rafting in Kenya has been going for over 25 years and has some of the best rafting in the world. The rivers in Kenya have varying degrees of difficulty, but whichever you choose, you’ll have an adventure you’ll never forget! Savage Wilderness pioneered rafting In Kenya.

Why you'll love this

Admire Nature’s glorious spectacle amid the calm, tranquil waters of the amazing Tana River before taking on the vibrant, spirited and extreme Class IV/V rapids. There’s something for everyone on the Tana, all year round.

Tana River Rafting is a ‘pool/drop’ river where areas of calm water, perfect for viewing the wildlife allow you to catch your breath after navigating stretches of class II to V white water. It provides a truly spectacular day of white water rafting. Depending on water levels you’ll raft 8-16km of river. The trip starts with 3km of easy class II and III white water, with plenty of opportunity to gain practice in the paddle skills required to run the lower part of the river. A calmer 6km section follows, and a tranquil hour or so marvelling at the abundant bird life. Here you can cool off with a swim in the warm water.

The final 7km back to the campsite start with easy class III water where paddle commands are reviewed in advance of the final challenge! For now, there is no way back as you crank it up to face the big class IV and V rapids. Captains Folly, Can of Worms (named because of its four, successive 90 degree bends) and Sphincter Flexor come first before, subject to water levels, you “surf” in the “fish-eye” hole before swimming the next couple of minor rapids. Numerous smaller rapids bring you at last to the class 5 Spasm, a series of drops over 3/4km with a big surprise half way through! And finally from here, the hard work complete, a gentle 15 minute float brings you safely back to camp.

The rafting on this stretch of river is ideal for first time rafters, and is an excellent taster for Kenya’s other white water adventures. The drifts are a good opportunity for bird watching, and over 100 species have been recorded along the riverbanks. A days rafting in Sagana includes a full BBQ lunch. If you are looking for an adventurous and relaxing day trip out of Nairobi, this is the perfect option.
