The trip downstream is much faster as you ride the flow, and this cuts travel time in half – just 2 hours opposed to 4 going up!

The high speed of the boat leaves little time to catch the pristine beauty in the morning light, so I memorized the interesting locations I missed on my way up – either due to rain or me facing the other direction.

This is the only section where there are huge boulders in and around the river, but there are plenty more in the jungle! As the table mountains are around 1,8 billion years old, the human timescale should not worry about frequent boulders coming off them. When the do come off, it must be an awesome spectacle, as their power is immense – they are not stopped by dense jungle!
