Team up for White Water Rafting nr Nairobi at end August?

Hi all,

I'm going to be in Nairobi with my partner 23-27 August as part of a wider trip around Kenya and Tanzania on a small budget.

We would love to go white water rafting but the main company operating in the area (Savage Wilderness http://www.savagewilderness.org/water/rafting.php) will take a minimum of 3 people on a trip. It's $105 per person for a day including pick up and drop off in Nairobi (we won't have our own transport). I think the rafts take up to 6.

It would be great to hear from anyone (a single person, a couple or group) in a similar situation who is Nairobi at this time and could help us make up numbers or vice versa.

If anyone has any other tips for going about this/know of other companies please let me know. If this isn't the right forum for this, please do suggest any Nairobi based forums where I could post.

Thanks all,

Jo

I just wanted to add that the company only provides transport when there are 6 people or above.

Hello Jo,

I am just getting started with planning a trip to Nairobi for that week. I have not even purchased my airfare yet because I first want to explore lodging options. But I hope to confirm this within one week. I would be very interested in a rafting trip.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Shanti

Hi Shanti,

That's great! I think we need to find another person, but the company said they can make a tentative booking. The Monday 26th Aug looks good for us, but could do 24th or 25th - let me know,

Cheers!

meer,

Have you considered emailing one of the 'overland or backpaker type' Cams in NBO, they may have a trip going you can join or know of someone who is looking too? Worth a punt.
