Free falling off a flying helicopter into the sea, Swooshing over forest canopies on a zip-line, Cord hanging in air or Jumping off tall stands into shaky board-walks is as much thrilling as it is frightening. Heights trigger some kind of adrenaline that races down your body stopping you from taking that step while sending all the blood to your head to convince you it’s going to be thrilling if you leap. Am one of those people whose height phobia is not even up for discussion and If you’ve read my posts you remember me talking about my excitement for bungee jumping at the River Nile till I hit the stand and there was No way I was going to throw my life off that almost 40 meter stand to the calm deep Nile waters below.

Although Am more of a wild chase bush person and maybe a little of a camouflaging adrenaline person who would rather stick to being a water junkie who can’t swim and mainly live for sun downers and sunrise silhouettes. Am intrigued by adrenaline junkies who jump off planes and take faith in the ropes holding them to safety yet still scream their lungs out for the thrill.
Having done most of the bush safari challenges and looking for a new thrilling experience ,There are quite a number of activities in Kenya that would trigger your high adrenaline and I thought I should share with you some of these extreme sports activities.
SKYDIVE in DIANI.
This has to top it all because we all somehow love beaches and apart from diving for an ocean swim off a boat, diving off a plane into the air and massive ocean below while rushing down trusting only on your parachute to give you a safe landing is the best other way to enjoy your vacation in coast. Sky Diving in Diani is one of the top rated tourist activities in south coast and the breathtaking views of the sparkling beach and small islands while you scream your way down are a lifetime memorable experience.

BUNGEE Jump at the Galana River.
A free fall off a 60m tall stand into the river Sagana with only a cord keeping you from being submerged into the brown waters at Rapids camp is a lifetime thrilling experience for any adrenaline junkie.
