About Rapids Camp

Rapids Camp is one of the fastest growing camp and team building sites in Kenya, with easy access to the city of Nairobi and the Thika super highway. Rapids Camp boasts a unique 450 metres of river frontage, and a large waterfall combined with large boulders within the camp for rock climbing, as well as four acres of neatly manicured lawns, making it one of the finest adventure camps in Kenya.

Due to its location right by the river, the green landscape and its very own waterfalls that roar with might, Rapids Camp is a perfect place for camping, relaxing, and just spending time communing with nature in Sagana. Sagana is about two hours’ drive from Nairobi.

The landscaping is ideal for pitching tents and is well facilitated with moveable barbeque grills, so you do not totally have to rough it out in the wild. Rapids Camp has eight tented Bazuka Tents, which are ideal for single guests or couples, and each contain a double bed. The tents can be pitched next to the Sagana River, or next to a waterfall, which offers a very relaxing atmosphere. Bedding is provided. Hot showers and modern flushing toilets are available. Meals can be provided by us on a pre-arranged basis only; or alternatively guest can own food and prepare from the camp. Cooking utensils are available for hire. There is ample secure parking for large or small vehicles.

There are various viewpoints overlooking the impressive Rapids falls as well as the scenic surrounding that you can watch and let the tranquillity of the outdoors take you over. There are plenty of activities and team-building activities to keep you busy at Rapids Camp including sport fishing, bird watching, kayaking, white water rafting and bungee jumping among others.
