On arrival, have a short briefing on the rafting trip then climb aboard the rafts. The rafts are small semi-rigid with paddles rather than oars with a maximum of five people to a boat. The river varies in temperament according to the recent rainfall in the Aberdare Mountains. There will be lots of excitement interspersed with some very pleasant paddling where you can take in the stunning variety of birdlife.

After that the river slows down and we are able to relax for about an hour or more and view the abundance of birdlife or take a swim. The final 4 miles (7 km) is class III waters and a class IV rapid just for fun. Break for lunch in the bush then proceed with an afternoon session. You will spend the afternoon "surfing" the rapids with your boat and getting out of the raft for some adrenaline pumping adventure.
