Tana River also known as Sagana River is the biggest in Kenya, with intense class IV and V rapids that make it an ultimate location for intrepid white water enthusiasts.
Sagana River is located about an hour-and-a-half drive from Nairobi on the scenic Nairobi-Nyeri highway. It can be done as a day trip or as an overnight activity, depending how much time you have to spare and how many times you want to tackle the rapids.
Mathioya River is also another excellent whitewater spot. Experienced paddlers love this narrow, low-volume river with five miles of continuous class IV white water. The Mathioya drops 1476 feet (450 m) in 13 miles (22 km) and offers a non-stop thrill ride.
