It took a day and a half by canoe to get to the base of the falls with our guides 'Tarzan and Jane' a French expat couple, who wore only loin cloth (no joke). We slept in hammocks in the open air at night with another 3,000,000 mosquitoes who turned my belly in a mogul slalom course. If only they ate the blubber and not the blood?!!
Despite the near death malaria experience, food poisoning, heat stroke and some weird parasite worm in my stomach / stool samples - discovered 12 months later, I highly recommend this trip to everyone. You know what they say.., What doesn't kill ya .... doesn't kill ya!
Alas - I didn't have a still camera back in the day and this is all that remains of my tardy recording of the trip :-((
