3 Day Kenya White Water Rafting on Tana River

Day 1
We depart Nairobi early morning after breakfast driving towards the put in point of the Tana River. The Tana is a drop pool river offering an exciting day of white water rafting. Picnic lunch will be taken by the river, then the afternoon spent drifting / paddling slowly down six kilometres of river. The Sure Connections Safaris (K) Ltd. starts with a 3 kilometer of easy class II and III white water, where plenty of opportunity to gain the practice of paddle skills required 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 a swim in the warm water. We then stop over a sand bank mid afternoon at an access point for our food and equipment. 

The final 7 kilometer of the river  to the campsite starts with some easy class III waters where paddle commands are gone over 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. We then arrive to our camp for the evening for meals around a campfire before we retire to the tents in preparation for the next day.

 Day 2
Early morning after breakfast, subject to water levels, we 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 ¾ 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 with plenty of snacks and drinks. After lunch when everyone is ready we leave for Nairobi arriving late afternoon to check in at Panafric hotel for dinner and accommodation.

 Day 3
After breakfast, The Sure Connections Safaris (K) Ltd. representative will drive you to the Airport for your flight home. Optionally do a city tour as you wait for your flight.

End of service.
