Kayaks down the Nile

Post by CitizenWolf »

He's an interesting video about the first people to kayak down the Nile. They used Chauveau kayaks (the name of the company before it changed to Nautiraid). Two French men and an American.

Good on you for posting!

It's worth the time to do a search on John Goddard.
I think he invented the "bucket list"! 😆
"Yakadoodle" ...I had to come up with some name since Steve already stole my name! :lol:

I bought the book many years ago. Still have it. i seem to recall that their biggest problem was not the Crocs, but the Hippos.

Yep, Hippos, pirates and irate locals who thought they were Israeli spies.

Another book that I found to be a good read: Down the Nile: Alone in a fisherman’s skiff by Rosemary Mahoney.
