“The Blue Nile remained virtually unexplored until the summer of 1968 when almost seventy people, British and Ethiopian, took nine weeks to explore and survey the mile deep gorge of the Great Abbai as its known in Ethiopia. The Blue Nile remains one of the worlds greatest natural features.” “Now!... With water levels higher than any other year, the challenge to navigate down this great river has just become much bigger! Explorer Hendri Coetzee and his team of four will venture the Blue Nile; one of the most feared and least traveled rivers in the world. Covering the most dangerous section of the river, the expedition will be attempted with no air or ground support.”
