Exploring the true source of the Nile River, we descended 696 km of the river. The Blue Nile has only a handful of partial descents dating back to the first attempts in the 50s. Undesirable wildlife and issues with locals have dissuaded many from kayaking the Grand Canyon of the Nile and its deepest gorges. Our expedition was the first since 2004. Interest was sparked as the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam is being built. Our hope is to bring attention to the negative impacts of this dam and delay its production.
My passion is exploring the world through outdoor adventure sports and teaching others how to utilize our natural playground to overcome self-induced boundaries driven by fear. When we overcome our fears, we are empowered to live a life beyond our wildest dreams.
