Searching for our start point and the journey down the Rio Maú was one of the toughest phases of the expedition that we’ll face. Here´s a short video of our journey so far in the extreme north of Brazil — deep in the the jungle of Conan Doyle’s Lost World. With so many stories to tell and already a big archive of footage, we´re releasing these brief updates whenever we get an internet connection… but saving the best bits for our final production.

Right now we are in Boa Vista, the state capital of Roraima. It´s been good to get some rest, eat a lot and process our photos and video footage. We also need to fix our canoe which took a beating on the rapids on Maú. Manaus lies 800km away down the Rio Branco and Rio Negro, we´ll be checking in there in around a month for another update.
