Flyingfish recently embarked on an expedition to South Africa.
Our journey took us along the Vaal and Orange River to some of the most remote and beautiful places in the country.
During the expedition we took footage on behalf of Triwaters Tour to support there up and coming documentary (The Tale Told By Two Rivers).
It’s a story told by three professional water kayakers, Troy Glover (Canada), Brett Merchant (Australia) and Franz Fuls (South Africa) and there attempt to kayak the Vaal and Orange river from source to sea with the purpose is to create more awareness on the pressing issue of water shortage and water pollution in large parts of South Africa’s biggest rivers.
Cart Blanch, a popular investigative journalism show in South Africa also produced a segment about this story and featured footage filmed by Flyingfish Productions.

Rivers all over the world are impacted and affected by the presence of humanity. While we need development, commerce, industry and mining we must make sure that we do not destroy our most valuable resource, water, in the process.
A healthy river system demonstrates high levels of biodiversity. Polluted rivers have less species living in them.
We must all use less water and save the sources of our water. There are actions that each of us can take at home, online and outside to reduce our own impacts.
Water is life!
