Peter Stark: At the mercy of the river ISBN:0-345-44181-8

A true exploration of the last african wilderness. A breathtaking journey down the Lugenda River in the Niassa province of Mozambique. The 750-kilometeres rivercourse is largely uncharted-dotted with rapids, waterfalls and home to deadly crocodiles and hippos. Another challenge was the fact that two of his four travel companions were not skilled kayakers.
