Pick up very early from Nairobi and transfer to Naivasha Kigio Wildlife Conservancy in the Rift Valley. Here you view some of the resident wildlife before you head off the property and up to the put in point far upstream. After instruction in rafting techniques and safety on the river you are out in charge of your own 2-3 person raft. The first day is a smooth water session with the occasional small rapid that is easily negotiated with your new skills!
Later in the morning a you pull over to the river bank at a local Kikuyu tribe Homestead and view how rural Kenyans in this region make a living. Onwards we paddle viewing python, waterbuck, and Sykes, Velvet and Colobus monkeys that live in the towering riverbank Acacia trees. You stop for the night at the campsite for a hot shower then join us under the stars for an aperitif before dining under the stars.
Optional accommodation at Malewa River Lodge
Now with days paddling experience we tackle rapids up to grade 3+ on the Malewa River negotiating rapids called the Waterfall, Otter and Eland Bend. A magic, fun day where you are in command of your craft. A sense of satisfaction is felt as we near the end of our trip and pull out at Malu lodge. We then transfer you back to Nairobi arriving late evening.
