Two Day Kern River Safari
An Active and Comfortable Southern California Rafting trip.
A UNIQUE KERN RIVER RAFTING ADVENTURE
Whitewater & Safari-inspired Camping – the Two Day Kern River Safari
Our Two-Day Kern rafting trips cover about 20 miles of some of the country’s best summer whitewater. With a beautiful high desert canyon, high adventure rapids, and an ultra-comfortable ‘safari style’ backcountry camp (think glamping), our two-day Kern river trip is considered the best and most unique overnight rafting trip in Southern California. It is based on our award-winning Upper Klamath Safari Camp and we are so excited to bring the concept to the Kern and the closest rafting to Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and San Diego.

River Rafting Itinerary
On day one we meet at 9:30AM at our Rafting Center. The day consists of progressive whitewater, meaning the rapids get more and more challenging as you travel downstream. After lunch, we tackle back-to-back rapids before floating up to our comfortable riverside Kern River Safari Camp, where we spend a comfortable night under the stars. Day 2 starts with breakfast and time for a second cup of coffee before we push off from camp and get back on the water. After a short portage around a Class VI rapid, we have a mix of exciting Class III and IV rapids. We’ll do a lunch stop before getting into the Big Five section of the Lower Kern, which ends the trip with terrific rapids. We then drive back to our Rafting Center, concluding the trip, and arriving between 3:30 and 5 PM.
