Deep Canyon Ltd: Big Nige

A longer day linking into our Niger (Nai-jer) Stream trip with its many jumps and slides – you get a lot of everything! A big day of hands-on action with enormous amounts of fun!

Big Nige is the upper section of the Niger canyon. Making for a longer, more technical and challenging day. The walk is  steep, taking about 35-45 minutes. Big Nige has 4 abseils (rappels) up to 24m (70’) high. These are in the full force of the water, and are more exciting and challenging than the abseils in Niger Stream. There is a 2m jump and 4m slide. All trips finish down the Niger Stream.  The trip is a max of 6 pax, so you travel as a small group at a faster pace.  You’re usually in the canyon for 4-5 hours, and you’ll need a good level of fitness and be comfortable following instruction and enjoy swimming. You don’t need to have abseiled before, but confidence with heights helps.
