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) and 12 km of clear river ideal for calm drifts through spectacular scenery. The rafting on this stretch of river is ideal for first time rafters, and is an excellent taster for Kenya's other white water adventures. The drifts are a good opportunity for bird watching, and over 100 species have been recorded along the riverbanks. A days rafting on the Tana includes a full BBQ lunch.
If you are looking for an adventurous and relaxing day trip out of Nairobi, this is the perfect option.
