Zip lining is an action-filled recreational activity that involves riding a steel cable on a protective seat or a belt between two points and generally on a valley that exhibits spectacular sceneries. Origin of zip lining is highly practical and used in the Himalayas and Alps as a way of transportation and observation in Costa Rica without disturbing the natural environment.
Zip lining as a recreational activity is fairly new; it is around since the late 20th century. Today, zip lining is a growing outdoor activity with millions of participants around the world.
(For a Family or group of people travelling together, we assign a private car and the tour can depart at their most convenient day)

You don’t need to buy any equipment before you go and enjoy zip lining in a zip lining center; unless you intend to assemble your own small zip line course in your backyard.
Different kinds of cable pulleys are utilized to provide the smooth flow of the zipline, where brakes or gradual speed reductions are activated towards the end. The pulley might be adjusted depending on conditions such as the steepness of the slope or the user’s weight.
The zipline is connected through steel carabiners for the clipping of the trolley. It is commonly used in activities with ropework to ensure safety.
The seat harness will support your body during your zip lining experience. It consists of straps and carabiners that is clipped to the cable to ensure your safety. You will also wear a chest harness to enhance stability. Instructors in zip lining centers will take care of attaching and detaching of the harnesses.
A helmet is to protect your head from falling objects and aerial obstacles like leaves, birds or branches. Zip lining centers will provide you with a range of sizes and they are usually pretty lightweight.
Gloves are an important piece of equipment that will protect your hands, especially during braking. If you are planning to travel with your equipment, there might be additional costs.
In simplest terms, zip lining is done utilizing the decline of the slope through a cable which starts from a relatively higher point compared to the end. The friction is reduced with a pulley from which zip liners are riding down at a slightly accelerated pace. Nevertheless, the maximum velocity of the ride will be determined by different factors such as the person’s weight, the slope or length of the cable. The height of the cable is also affected by the structure of the line whether it is constructed on a natural platform or an artificial one. Its length may also differ depending on the required intensity. Moreover, there are two kinds of brake systems for controlling the speed. People with heart problems, high blood pressure or other physical issues should consult a doctor before doing zip lining.
In most places, zip lining is a year-round activity that can be enjoyed in every season, even in winter. However it is recommended for you to avoid zip lining at noon, as direct sunlight might prevent you from enjoying the scenery and your surroundings.
After breakfast, you’ll begin your trip to the Zip Lining destination i.e. Kereita Forest, Paradise lost, Redhill Camp, Rapids Camp Sagana or Machakos people’s park.
On arrival, we start our activities with the main activity which is Zip Lining. To maximize our adventure experiences we will participate in most of the activities of the day in the morning session.
We break for one hour for our lunch.
After lunch we get back for more activities depending on energy and conducive circumstances especially weather conditions.
At 4:00PM we start our journey back to Nairobi, hoping to make it to the CBD by latest 6:00PM to allow participants to catch up with their means of transport back home.
