The Dream Team Before The Slaughter! Heh! Heh!

The happy crew before attempting Sjambok Rapid. Before going down Sjambok the unsuspecting victims park their canoes some distance upstream and take a walk over a clean-swept rocky area of black basalt intrusions in grey granite to view the rapid. The guides explain the best line to take down the rapid and what to do if you capsize. The river is channeled into a sort of chute between two level areas of rock. The chute is quite narrow, deep and straight so the water flows very fast but in the little bays and cracks on the edge of the flow the water moves very gently. Lots of people are so psyched up that they throw themselves out of the canoe! The worst that can happen is you get wet! Ha!
