ANGOLA’S DROWNING DIAMONDS - UNCOVERING THE RIO KEVE AND RIO KWANZA
Claiming the first descent on the Rio Kwanza's Lauca Gorge was no easy feat. Mike Dawson, Dewet Michau, and Jake Holland drove hundreds of miles and navigated landmines, crocodiles, bureaucracy, limited infrastructure, imminent hydro development, and oh yeah, massive rapids. Will they be the last to access the gold mine of whitewater on the Kwanza before it is dammed?
ODE TO THE NILE - A CELEBRATION OF ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST ICONIC RIVERS
Since rafting companies first promoted the potential of the White Nile River in the early 90s, generations of kayakers from around the world have been drawn to its warm waters. In the last decade, the Nile has become equally recognized for its plight in the push for progress as its large volume rapids and world-class waves. Jessie Stone takes a moment to appreciate what made the Nile so special and still does.
IN THE SHADOW OF THE INDUS – DISCOVERING THE RIVERS OF GILGIT-BALTISTAN
