2 Days 1 Night White Water Rafting Tana River Trip

2 Days 1 Night White Water Rafting Tana River Trip from Nairobi takes place in Sagana on Tana River about 95 km from Nairobi. Rafting on the Tana River is available all year round with a minimum of 2 people and a maximum of 60 people.

Depending on the time of year, the kilometres the white water rafting covers are different. During the rainy season, we normally cover 16 km but in the dry season, we only cover 8 km.

Our 2 Days 1 Night white water rafting Tana River trip is the most popular one and is ideal for guests with 2 to spare when visiting Nairobi, or those coming off climbing Mount Kenya. 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.

Zipline (1 run): Half Hours

Camping: Enjoy time communing with nature at the lush and scenic grounds right by the River Sagana with magnificent waterfalls and clear skies for company.

Sport Fishing Game fishing: takes place right next to the amazing waterfalls which keep you company as you haul in a good catch of fish including Tilapia and Catfish.

Nature Walks & Bird Watching 2 Hours: For the expert birdwatchers or the amateurs, we offer an opportunity to learn and observe a variety of birds ranging from the grassland crane to guinea fowl in their natural habitats in Kenya

Kayak courses 3 Hours: With its plunging height of 40 feet, the waterfall and the subsequent wild waters of the Sagana River are great places for kayaking.

Bungee jumping Half Hours: An adrenalin-pumping ground activity at the Camp that involves a dive from a structure 60m in height for that exhilarating free-falling sensation. The thrill comes as much from the free-falling as from the rebounds and gives you a totally exhilarating feeling.

Rock Climbing 2 Hours Natural Wall: Rock climbing aims at giving you time to enjoy the grandeur of the landscape as you enjoy the outdoors in Sagana. There are many unique routes and expert climbing guides so that anyone at all skill levels can give this activity a try.

Safari Itinerary in Detail

Day 1: Nairobi – Drive to Sagana Camp For Your White Water Rafting Adventure

0730 Hours: Your pickup time from Sarit Center. You will be met in Nairobi by one of our guides and driven to our riverside camp in the town of Riandira. On arrival, you will have refreshments and receive a brief from our guide team on the day’s program.

Once you have changed your guides will give you the safety briefing explaining what happens if you fall out of the raft and how to paddle. The Tana River is a pool drop river offering an exciting day of white water rafting. Depending on water levels you may raft 8-16 km of river.

1000 Hours: 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 kilometres 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 kilometres of the 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 and then swim the next couple of minor rapids.

Numerous smaller rapids bring one to the class 5 Spasm, a series of drops over ¾ kilometre section with a big surprise halfway through! From here a 15-minute float brings you back to camp.

1400 Hours: We reach the take-out point/ campsite about 3 to 4 hours after setting off, where a full barbecue lunch awaits us with Beer and soft drinks included.

1500 Hours: After lunch, you have time to simply relax at our camp or participate in one of our many optional activities, Mountain Biking, Zip lining, rock climbing, kayaking, nature walks, and Sundowners.
