Sagana is situated at the edge of a large plain at the Southern foot of Mt. Kenya, resulting in a Climate that is slightly warmer than areas just 30 km farther North. Kenya's reputation as Africa's Premier Adventure destination has been bolstered by the opening of East Africa's first Bungee Jumping operation on the banks of the Tana River at Sagana, just 95 km North of Nairobi. 'Bungee walla' now offers high adrenaline jumps at their base and Campsite, shared with the country's most popular White Water Rafting outfit.
This combination of rafting and Bungee makes the Tana a one stop adventure center. Bungee Jumping is a popular extreme sport worldwide. Started in New Zealand, it involves jumping from bridges or towers with your ankles attached to a long rubber bungee cord. Kenya's bungee is from a specially constructed 60 meter tower over the Tana River. Jumpers ascend the tower attached to a safety rail by specialized climbing harnesses. Once at the top, they are fitted with the bungee cord, and are then free to take the plunge over the wild waters of the Tana.
After the jump, they are collected in a raft, and returned to the bank to rest, recover, or even take to the rapids and raft. The Bungee location is an ideal stop en route to Mt Kenya or Samburu- and can be combined with a day's White Water Rafting on the Tana.
