Book - Canyoning Niger Stream

Canyoning is the ultimate way to get up close and personal with mother nature and have a unreal time doing it. Experience the raw power of strong waterfalls to the tranquillity of deep, forested pools. From sculptural rockscapes to glowing green moss droplets, you will be immersed in a world you never knew existed.

Become the ultimate water baby as you plunge down water polished chutes and abseil down waterfalls, plus jump off cliffs!

Climb, swim and float through an amazing world of water- sculpted rock, deep clear pools and spectacular waterfalls.

Sound like FUN?!

What to bring? A swim suit and towel.

Can I wear specticals? Well people have, but you need wipers… Contact lenses are fine.

Do I need to be able to swim?  They have had a number of non-swimmers and they’ve had a great time. However, they do not recommend high flow trips to non-swimmers and some trips are more suitable than others. If you have any concerns you should call us to discuss them. If we have a non-swimmer they put on an extra guide so they can actively manage clients in the water, at an added cost of $250 per group.

Will I be scared? Quite possibly. If you’re worried about things talk to us before you come. They enjoy taking people who are prepared to push themselves. Remember, the more you put in, the more you get out. Attitude is all.

I’m a vegetarian? Lunches contain no animals. Let us know if you have specific requirements.

Is it cold? It can be, especially at the start and conclusion of the season. On chilly days they pull out our range of ‘accessories’ – hoods, gloves etc all in tasteful rubber and it works a treat.

Am I too old? Probably not, attitude is all. Current age record is 76 years.

When can I go? They start running trips in early Oct and run every day except Christmas Day (25th Dec) and New Years Day (1st Jan). They continue until late April each summer season.

Am I too young? They have taken children as young as 11 years on easier trips dependent on conditions, the child’s experience and support. They suggest Dec – Feb as these are the warmer months. Contact us directly for specific information. 

What footwear do I wear? They supply all footwear.

Can I bring a GoPro/Other Camera? You are welcome to bring your own camera (at your own risk), it will need to be waterproof and it should have an attachment. They have helmets with the GoPro mount that you are more than welcome to use. Make sure that you bring additional attachments just in case the helmet is not a good fit for your head. Also, be sure to be familiar with your camera – the canyon is not a suitable environment to learn how to use your device.
