Tana River Rafting

Our premiere one day trip ideal for people with a day or two to spare when visiting Nairobi, or those basing themselves in the capital (only 100km's along the Nyeri Road). This will be an exciting day of thrills (and often spills) with a great mix of high action whitewater (up to grade V) interspersed with scenic calm water where birdlife abounds. Not enough? Why not leap feet first into a big surfing hole, jump a 30ft waterfall or swim 'The Devils Toilet Bowl' (water level dependant).

A typical day trip starts with you being picked up from either The Norfolk Hotel or Sarit Centre in Nairobi by 8am. A 1.5hr drive see's you arriving at Sagana Camp. Here you can relax with tea/coffee and biscuits before receiving a comprehensive safety briefing. After signing a compulsory release and assumption of risk form (place link to release and assumption of risk form here), we will then drive up to the put in where you will receive some final practical training before heading down river. The trip is either 16km (high water season) or 8km (low water season) and lasts approximately 4hrs. This varies greatly due to the water levels and we often find ourselves rafting 8km one day, then 11km the next due to rain upstream. The trip takes out at Savage Camp, where you can enjoy a solar heated shower or relax in the pool before enjoying a three course barbeque lunch. Trips depart Savage Camp no later than 5pm for Nairobi to ensure you arrive back at your pick up point before dark.

Other options available on the Tana include scenic float trips from the camp downstream on completely flat water for those not wishing to experience any whitewater. This trip lasts 4hrs and takes in the abundant birdlife inhabiting the lush riverine forests along the river. To date our guides have recorded over 120 species of birds on this section. Trips are usually taken by a Kenya Professional Safari Guide.

New to our repertoire of Tana trips is the full moon run. This takes in the whitewater section only and lasts about 3hrs. Please contact us for more details and dates for full moon run.
