Activities that have highest forms of inherent dangers give the rush to the junkies aka thrill seekers.
Extreme sports aka adventurous sports are for the chosen few. Not everyone is an adrenaline junkie. The scars and bruises and feeling of heart jumping off their chests is considered the epitome of adventure!
Fortunately, Kenya also offers a playground to adventurous spirits to burn as much adrenaline as they can. So here are some of the adventures in Kenya not for the faint of heart.
White water rafting
If you do not know how to swim, I would advise you not to do this activity. White water rafting is people sit in rubber rafts, steer themselves down fast, raging rivers and control where they go by paddles and their own manpower. In Kenya, you can do this activity at Sagana(Tana) Kenya, and Athi River.
Skydiving adventure is one of the best extreme sports! “It was the most blood boiling extreme sport I have done on my tour in Africa” No one in their right mind will jump out of a plane, come landing down so many feet down. You feel your blood boiling and chest thumping as you free fall, if you are lucky, we are working with probabilities here…you will land safely on a sandy beach. Exciting? Then Diani is the place you need to go for this adrenaline rush!
Leaping off a 60 meter tower over the Tana River, attached only by a bungee rope is no small joke! An elastic rope will be attached to you then you are to free fall from a structure your head facing down. I don’t know what’s more dangerous, the free fall and putting faith on a code to save your life or the fact that you are head first fast falling to the ground. The elastic cord stretches so your head will not come crushing to the ground, plus being elastic, it gives you rebounds up and down, a movement said to be exhilarating. You can try bungee jumping in Sagana.
As a recreational activity, shooting ranges are a huge contributor as a stress-relieving adventure. Aside from an adventure, shooting range actually has health benefits: bulds arm strength, increases mental discipline, gives you confidence, adrenaline among others. You can go for shooting range at KRRC located in Langata
