Below is footage from the Blue Nile Expedition.


This epic expedition which took place in 1968 was resupplied by a British Army Air Corps Beaver plane with some very accurate parachute drops. 


The expedition became the first to navigate the Blue Nile and pioneered the use of inflatable boats for river running leading to the start of white water rafting as a worldwide activity.

JBS is mounting two new expeditions in 2016:

  • Sierra Nevada, Colombia in February 2016.  This expedition is now full although we are running a reserve list.
  • Mongolia in July 2016.  There are still spaces available on this expedition.
