Make sure to book a trip with Mikey as your guide! Best time ever :-) We did the Niger stream, it was a good challenge as it was our first time canyoning.

We did the Niger stream canyon. It was great fun. A lot of jumps, zip lines and rappelling. The guide was very nice, took good picture of us. I strongly recommend to take GoPro or alike.

Hi Josee, Thanks for posting, as a guide for Deep Canyon I would always err on the side of caution. While we can guide you down the canyon, this is a sport where you could bump your helmet (which is why we wear them) which... More
