Tana River Rafting Expedition

Whiterwater Rafting In Kenya.

White water rafting is an extreme adventure sport carried out mainly on River Tana, Athi and Mathioya in Kenya. With the aid of experts any person could raft in mild river waters.

Tana River

Departs from Nairobi City Centre at 0730hrs. It is an hour and a half drive to the campsite near Sagana. The clients are offered tea or coffee with biscuits when they arrive.  After the refreshments the clients are given a safety briefing then they are transported up the river to the put in point.  They are provided with life jackets, helmets and a paddle.

The trip will take from four to five hours depending on the water levels. Note that the rafts may be put in at a different points depending again on water levels. Below is a brief description on the full rafting trip.

“The Tana River is a drop pool river offering an exciting day of white water rafting. The adventure starts with a 3 km stretch of easy class II and III white water, where there is plenty of opportunity to practice the paddle skills required to run the lower part of the river. A 6 km section follows with an hour or so of relaxation to view the abundance of bird life around.  Cool off with a swim in the warm water.  The final 7 km of river, back to the campsite starts with some easy class III waters where paddle commands are gone over again.  It is now time for the 3 big rapids (class IV and V) with names like Captains Folly, Can of Worms,(taking its name from its four 90 degree bends in succession) and Sphincter Flexor. Subject to water levels we may be able to do some surfing in “fish eye” and then swim the next couple of smaller rapids. Numerous smaller rapids brings one on to the last big one – Spasm, a series of drops over ¾ km with a big surprise half way through.  We reach the take out point/campsite about 4 to 5 hours after setting off, where a full barbeque lunch awaits us. Plenty of beer and soft drink included.”
