The adventurer Helge Hjelland travels the entire Niger River as the first man ever
Western Africa: The Norwegian adventurer Helge Hjelland travels the entire Niger River as the first man ever. This is a story of a remarkable and different type of adventurer – a guy who becomes motivated by Nature's difficult and rough obstacles as well as heartwarming meetings with the local people. Through his camera we come along on a historic yet modern journey. In confrontation with the rough climate he soon realizes why no one has done this journey before him. And near the ocean, he experiences something that turns everything upside down.
