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.

We went to New Zealand for 7 weeks. And this was definitely the best thing that we did (and we did a lot). Mike was a great guide. Thank you and the rest of the team of course.

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
