You will be picked up in Nairobi and met by your trip leader who will explain everything about the expedition while on the 4-hour route down to the starting point near “Yatta Gap Bridge”. On arrival you will have a small lunch while loading all the gear in the rafts getting ready to start an easy float 4 hours down stream, covering a distance of 10km to the first night camp.
You will start your day early since this is when the animals come down to drink at the river. You will pack up the camp after breakfast, load the rafts and start your journey navigating 30km down the river. You will go through numerous sections of class 2 and 3 rapids and two big drops of class 4. Lunch will be spent on a small island in the middle of the river and you will camp on another sandy beach under the stars.
Once again you will start early to view the game drinking from the river and then it is back to navigating your way through rapids and jungle with some more exciting rapids. After 25km you will arrive at your final destination where you will pack up and head back to Nairobi.
