white_water_rafting_one_day_escapade

This day trip to Sagana departs any day of the week at 0700hrs.

Drive to Sagana 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). These excursions are seasonal depending on the water levels.

Rafting or white water rafting is a challenging recreational activity using an inflatable raft to navigate a river or other bodies of water. This is usually done on white water different degrees of rough water, in order to thrill and excite the raft passengers. Rafting in Kenya has been going for over 20 years and has some of the best rafting on the continent. The rivers in Kenya have varying degrees of difficulty, but whichever you choose, you'll have an adventure you'll never forget!

The Tana River is a pool river offering an exciting day of white water rafting. The adrenaline adventure starts with a 3 kilometer of basic class II and III white water where plenty of opportunity to gain the practice of paddle skills require running the lower part of the river.

A 6 kilometer section follows with an hour or so of relaxation to view the abundance of bird life around. Cool off with an optional swim in the warm water.

The final 7 kilometer of Tana river back to the campsite starts with some easy class III waters where paddle commands relinquished again. It is now the 3 big rapids (class IV and V) with names like Captains Folly, Can of Worms because of its four 90 degree bends in succession, and Sphincter Flexor.

Subject to water levels, you may be able to "surf" in "fish eye" and then swim the next couple of minor rapids. Numerous smaller rapids brings one on to the last big one – Spasm, a series of drops over three quarters km section with a big surprise half way through.

We reach the campsite about 4 to 5 hours after setting off, where a full barbeque lunch awaits us. Plenty of beer and soft drink Included. After lunch when everyone is ready we leave for Nairobi arriving late in the afternoon.

What to Bring – Clothes you do not mind getting wet i.e. T Shirts, shorts or long sleeved shirt and trousers (especially for those who burn easily) and shoes that will not come off.

Bungee Jumping - Savage Wilderness  Camp

Bungee jumping is an extreme sport and it involves jumping from a tall structure while being held around your torso using a body harness. When the person jumps, the cord stretches and the jumper flies upwards again as the code snaps back and continues to oscillate up and down until all the energy is dissipated

Site location: In Kenya bungee jumping is done at Tana River near Sagana. A steel tower erected on the banks of the river provides a 60 meters (196 feet) platform from where the plunge is done. Sagana is 95 km from Nairobi on the Nyeri road. Crocodile Racers Adventures Safaris will provide a tour van to the site or you can self-drive to Sagana.

Weight restrictions: For safety reasons, participants are weighed before climbing on the tower. Minimum and maximum weight is 40kg and 100kg respectively.
