Thank you Déo. You know the area by hart! We had a very amazing time together! Remember to wear firm waterproof shoes, no flip flops... You need grip in the river!

Great fun negotiating the river crossings to get to the waterfall; but definitely need reef or Neva-Type sandals! Doing the hike and crossing bare foot is not a smart option...
