Due to public demand , let's take advantage of the good weather and we head to Tana River for White water rafting.

Rafting in Tana River is one of the best rafting trips in the world. We will not only have the pleasure of navigating through countless rapids but will also have the chance to view Kenya’s wildlife and landscapes from a different angle.

Our fun filled Itinerary:

We will Arrive at Savage camp at around 8.30 am. On arrival we will have refreshments and receive a safety briefing on rafting.

The Tana River is a pool drop river offering an exciting day of white water rafting. Depending on water levels we may raft Protected content of river. The full trip starts with 3 km 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 6 km section follows with an hour or so of relaxation to view the abundance of bird life around. Here you can 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 water where paddle commands are gone over again. It is now the 3 big rapids (class 4 and 5) with names like Captains Folly, Can of Worms (because of its four 90 degree bends in succession), and Sphincter Flexor.

Subject to water levels we may be able to “surf” in the “fish-eye” hole then swim the next couple of minor rapids. Numerous smaller rapids bring one to the class 5 Spasm, a series of drops over ¾ km section with a big surprise half way through!

From here a 15 minute float brings us back to the camp where we will enjoy a barbecue lunch with a beer and soft drinks.
