Deep in the heart of Africa, on one of the biggest and most dangerous rivers in the world, sits the Inga Rapids. This swirling vortex of whitewater has claimed the lives of numerous paddlers over the years and up until late last year, it had never been successfully run.
In November of 2011, Tyler Bradt, Steve Fisher, Ben Marr and Rush Sturges traveled to the Congo to challenge those rapids, eventually making the first descent of those incredibly turbulent waters. They called their expedition the Grand Inga Project and a documentary film of their adventure will be released shortly. The trailer for that amazing looking film is below.
Be warned, this white water is not for the faint of heart. It is big, bad and nasty. It makes for a great looking film though. Can’t wait to see this.

Wow! What motivation within the water…
You do discover the most amazing video imagery Kraig. Have you seen: "Meet The Moment" by ClifBar on Youtube? Wonderful adventure imagery and a great way to support causes!
Yep! I've wrote about the "Meet The Moment" initiative both here and over at Gadling. GREAT way to protect some important places. 🙂
