Through rivers, estuaries, mangrove forests and ocean, we discover isolated villages and local tribes practicing animistic ceremonies. This unspoilt paradise is also home to a multitude of bird species as well as the green sea turtle and the salt water hippo that we hope to spot during our journey.
