The Tana River is a drop pool river offering and exciting day of white water rafting. The adventure starts with a 3 km 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 6 km 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. The final 7 km 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. What to Wear:- clothes you do not mind getting wet i.e. T-shirts, shorts or long sleeved shirt and trousers (especially for those who burn easily) and shoes that will not come off.

The landscape includes areas of marsh and grasslands alternating with rocky cliffs and outcrops, stretches of acacia woodland and rocky hillsides covered with a Euphorbia forest.
