Pick up early morning (7a.m) from designated location, pack up and head out towards Sagana for the thrill of a life time.It is approximately an hour and a half drive to our campsite near Sagana. On arrival, have light refreshing snacks with tea or coffee. After refreshments the clients are given a safety briefing then they are transported up the river to the put in point. They are provided with life jackets, helmets and a paddle.
The trip will take from four to five hours depending on the water levels. Note we may put in at different points depending again on water levels. Below is a brief description on the full rafting trip.“The Tana River is a drop pool river offering and exciting day of white water rafting. The adventure starts with a 3km stretch of easy class II and III white water, where there is plenty of opportunity to practice the paddle skills required to run the lower part of the river. A 6km section follows with an hour or so of relaxation to view the abundance of bird life around. Cooloff with a swim in the warm water.
The final 7km of river, back to the campsite starts with some easy class III waters where paddle commands are gone over again. It is now time for the 3 big rapids (class IV and V) with names like Captains Folly, Can of Worms, (taking its name from its four 90 degree bends in succession) and Sphincter Flexor. Subject to water levels we may be able to do some surfing in “fish eye” and then swim the next couple of smaller rapids. Numerous smaller rapids brings one on to the last big one – Spasm, a series of drops over ¾ km with a big surprise half way through.
