River Tana, Kenya. Pictures.

Post by james fleming » Sun Nov 13, 2011 9:31 pm

Ian Letton and Giles Chater at T3, Heathrow heading off to Kenya. Oh, I'm on the camera!

Our location for the first week, Sagana camp site, more than a camp site!

The following pictures were on the River Tana! The levels were high and indeed reflected the leves in general.

These pictures were taken on the lower Tana. I took a wee swim on a rapid above a very heavey G5+ monster! Gulp. Thanks to Ian for getting me off the rock!

Looks like really good fun - looking forwards to the video compilation of air punches.

I don't know if I'm imagining it in those pics, but is the geology a bit dubious, i.e. siphon-friendly?

There were no siphons on the parts of the Tana, that we saw. Nor did any of the guides indicate there were any prior to getting on. There was, however, a hippo warning but we never saw any apart from in the Massi Mara park...which will be in the video.
