Savage Wilderness

Savage Wilderness is the leading adventure company in Kenya, offering mountain biking, mountain climbing and white-water rafting, from day activities from Nairobi to week-long adventures.

Savage Wilderness was founded in 1990 by Mark Savage, a bush pilot who saw the rafting potential of the Kenyan rivers he flew over. Adventures on white-water rivers are still a big part of Savage Wilderness’s product, and with our 12 rafts, 24 inflatable canoes and 60 kayaks, we can offer anything from 2 – hour kayaking for beginners, to multi-river expeditions lasting 5 to 50 days, enjoying breathtaking experiences in spectacular scenery, with sightings of Kenya’s incredible wildlife.

With a fleet of over 50 ‘Giant’ mountain bikes and 5 E-bikes, biking packages are also integral to the company. With vehicle support (Land cruisers and motorbikes) and E-bikes for the less fit, cycling can be suitable for all ages and abilities, whether you want gravel riding, mountain biking on Mt Kenya, bike packing or simply enjoying some exercise while game-viewing. 5km cyclists can travel with 50km cyclists and all meet for lunch, and itineraries could be 7 days of cycling or a morning activity from Nairobi. You can combine mountain biking with rafting, kayaking, ziplining, mountaineering, hiking and rock climbing, to tailor-make your adventure itineraries.

For extraordinary adventure, Savage Wilderness can strap your bike to a helicopter, take you up Mt Kenya to cycle down, or off to explore the African wilderness by helicopter, dropping down to bike runs when your guides see suitable terrain. Welcome to heli-biking!
