Kenya’s biggest rivers are Tana and Athi. The country is rich in rivers both natural and man made. Tana river is beautiful and well known for white water rafting activities.
Tana River is the longest river in Kenya nearly 1,014 km long. Its tributaries include Thika, the river rises on the slopes of Mt Kenya and the Aberdare Mountains to the west of Nyeri. The lower part of Tana dissects a wild and vast area of Kenya, where the riverine strip makes a vivid contrast to the parched bush stretching for miles on either side. From Kora National reserve onwards, Tana is the only supply of water in an endless sea of dry bush, rocky soil and little rainfall. The river forms the Tana Delta, which is the largest deltaic ecosystem in Kenya. The river basin is characterized by high diversity of habitat types including riverine forests, woodlands, grasslands, bushland and Mangroves. The basins sustain large numbers of mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and galleries of riverine forests.
Tana River is also a drop pool river offering an exciting day of white water rafting. The adventure starts with a 3km stretch of easy class 2 and 3 white water rafting, 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 birdlife around and cool off with a swim in the warm water.
