Day 1
Pick up by SWS in Nairobi and driven down to the start of the rafting venue near Yatta Gap Bridge (4hrs). Put in at the bridge, afternoon float trip for 10km down the river (4hrs). Mainly calm water. The night is spent on a suitable sand bank along the river.

Day 2
Early start, so as to be on the river for the best of the game viewing, (early morning and evening is when the animals mainly come down to drink); full day rafting, with numerous sections of class II and III white water plus two big drops of class IV. Lunch on one of the many small islands, (30km) Arrive at camp – again a suitable sand bank, late afternoon.

Day 3
Very similar to day 2, but with some more exciting rapids and “jungle” to pass through. (25km). Optional overnight or depart to Nairobi.
Mathioya River
With over 450m of descent in around 22km the Mathoya River offers some of the most technical water to be found in Kenya. A narrow, low volume river with rapids up to grade V. Previous experience is recommended.
For inexperienced rafters a two-day package is available; one day rafting on the Tana, overnight at our camp, then have a second action packed day on the Mathoya.
