We were with 4 kids aged 5-14 had a wonderful day rafting! It's one and a half hour away from Nairobi on the way to Mount Kenya and it was the perfect place to stop on our way to the mountain. The owner was with us in the raft and the kids said it was the best day for them... More

My pal and I travelled to this excellent campsites to get away the the hassle and bustle of Nairobi over Easter weekend. We undertook Mountain Biking, Kayaking and best of all, White Water Rafting along the Tana River. We stayed in one of then advertised cottages (4 single beds in each room). Within this accommodation you'll find a shower and... More

My Husband and I had the best time rafting and enjoying the camp. The staff at Savage Wlderness is amazing! Our accommodations were clean and comfortable and the grounds were landscaped beautifully. The rafting was EPIC! If you go, book the longest trip possible, it's so worth it! The Tana River even runs right through the camp. The perfect combination... More

Stayed here as part of a three day package. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, with the activity guides are at the top of their game. I can't recommend the white water rafting enough, I came back for a second go.

I use Savage Wilderness for all my Sagana River activities, the facilities and crew are GREAT. So far, most of my time is taken up with whitewater kayaking lessons although I did manage a 1/2 day of rafting with some friends and a number of soldiers from the British Army. That was a lot of fun, except my old-man body... More

I randomly agreed to go for a rafting trip with my pals despite my not so good swimming ability! the guides took us through a safety drill which made me question why i decided to raft. Well, i am glad i did it, it was an amazing, exhilarating experience. Let go of any fears and have the time of your... More

I came to sagana because I wanted to do bungee jumping and white water rafting. Unfortunately the instructor for the bungee was ill so I didnt go. Instead we did only the white water rafting. This was amazing on the tana river. First the guide spent about 30 mins explaining the risks and methods of rafting. Following this we went... More

Rafting on the Tana is an experience of a lifetime! A family of four, perfect for a raft, paddling, surfing, somersaulting, swimming and going under was an experience not to be missed. Clear instructions was a great help as we were amateurs. Not any more! Good three hours were well spent and not a dull moment. Joined by other rafters,... More
