Laurence and i were sitting above rapid number 5 on the Zambezi just
last week and realized its been 17 years since we first guided on the
Zambezi and here we are again dropping into the best rapids in the
world. We thanked the Zambezi river god Nyami Nyami for all the safe
passages,we peeled out of the eddy, and dropped into number 5 with huge
smiles! We co-trip lead our September 16th Zambezi trip and lead 22
people down the mighty Zambezi. The trip went off without a hitch and
everyone had a great time.
I realize there has been alot of bad news
coming out of Zimbabwe but the country is still safe as ever, the people
are some of the friendliest and most helpful in the world and this is
still a great time to visit Zimbabwe. Tourism has dropped off because of
all the bad economic news, but there is no resistance movement in
Zimbabwe and the locals are depending more than ever on the tourist
dollar.In fact this is even a better time to go because it is less
crowded and you get more personal service. We have considered moving our
base to Zambia on the other side of the river but for now everything is
still a go in Zimbabwe! In many ways it is like returning home for us
because we have made so many good friends and contacts in Zimbabwe.
Bio Expeditions along with the help of a few clients brought over a
handful of kayaks and all the necessary gear and started a free kayak
school for any local that wants to learn to kayak. This will provide a
fresh stream of new talented kayakers able to work and provide safety
for future rafting expeditions.
Our trips are planned for
September 2007 and we hope that if you have ever dreamed of rafting and
going on safari in Africa you will join us in 2007!
Forget the dog days of August: The dry season hits southern Africa in
September, when elephants, zebras, impalas, and baboons lumber down to
the 1,650-mile Zambezi River for a drink of water. The best way to get a
look at all that wild game? From the river itself. Sign on with the
expert guides from Bio Bio Expeditions, whose Zambezi Explorer trip
departs only in September. READ FULL ARTICLE>>
back from another great adventure in Peru. We ran another safe and fun
trip thorugh the Cotahuasi canyon. Water levels were perfect as was the
weather. A few of the rapids that we have portaged in years past became
runnable due to a shift in some of the boulders. One of our guests Adam
Dawson ran all of the rapids while others choose to walk around a few.
We are looking forward to two trips in 2007. This was our 6th year
running the Cotahuasi and each year we figure out how to run a smoother
trip. We have big plans for 2007!
Please click below for a few sample shots of the 2006 Cotahuasi trip.
Thanks to everyone for making this a memorable trip.
Alvarez and Marc Goddard both turned 40 last week. Laurence and Marc
met when they were 13 and have been running rivers ever since! At 40
they are still at it and plan to run the Middle Fork of the Feather this
weekend. Marc plans to guide the Cotahuasi on July 3rd. Please click on
the link below to see a fun slide show on the history of the friendship
of Marc and Laurence and friends along the way!
