River Athi is one of the best water rafting places in Kenya. It offers the most interesting rafting adventure and wonderful game views of species such as monkeys, crocodiles, hippos, giraffes, elephants, baboons, buffalos and also bushbuck from their natural habitat.

There is also a lovely and productive bird life which has a record of over 120 species. Rafting on river Athi occurs on the section of the river that is bordering the famous Tsavo East National Park.

This adrenaline rush activity in Kenya can be easily combined with traditional wildlife safari in the parks like Tsavo East or West or Amboseli National Park. Such tours that can be combined with this extreme activity in Athi River includes the 4 days kenya Safari to Amboseli, and Tsavo West.
