First Descent of the Ivondro (Part 1)

Kayak Madagascar


British Universities Kayaking Expedition (BUKE / Uniyaker) is a well established biennial expedition in search of some of the finest white-water on earth. Previous expeditions have explored; Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia; Siberia, Vietnam, Venezuela and Ethiopia.

Between June and August 2015 this year’s team of paddlers from British universities explored the rivers of Madagascar.

After paddling the Ikopa we decided to head East for some more exploratory paddling. We headed towards a 150 km section of the Ivondro. Being a first decent as well as longer, steeper and more remote than what we had already done we were very excited!
