Savage Wilderness pioneered Whitewater Rafting in Kenya in 1990 with Mark Savage and Co's now legendary first descent of the Athi River. It all started in Mark's bush pilot days when after watching a rafting video, he realised the potential for rafting on the wild Kenyan rivers he regularly flew over. The first boat and a set of paddles were purchased a few months later, some volunteers signed up for the first non-commercial trip down the Athi and the rest is history.
