Situated just 95km from Nairobi, the foaming Tana River has some excellent rapids for those interested in trying their hand at white water rafting. A day of rafting on the river takes you through a combination of 16km of white water (up to Class V in season) and 12km of clear river, ideal for calm drifting through some exceptional scenery.
Rafting on this stretch of river is ideal for first timers and is an excellent primer for Kenya's other white water rivers.
The drifts are a good opportunity for some amazing bird watching, and over 100 species have been recorded along the riverbanks.
If you are looking for an adventurous day trip out of Nairobi this is the perfect option!
