Bungee jumping in Kenya

Bungee jumping is an extreme sport and it involves jumping from a tall structure while being held around your torso using a body harness.  When the person jumps, the cord stretches and the jumper flies upwards again as the code snaps back, and continues to oscillate up and down until all the energy is dissipated.

Site location
In Kenya bungee jumping is done at Tana River near Sagana. A steel tower erected on the banks of the river provides a 60 meters (196 feet) platform from where the plunge is done.  Sagana is 98 km from Nairobi on the Nyeri road. Fountain Safaris can provide a tour van to the site or you can self-drive to Sagana.
