Follow Ed Stafford's extraordinary journey as he battles dense jungle, deadly creatures, drug-traffickers and tropical disease, in a bid to conquer the length of the Amazon River.
In the concluding part of the documentary, former soldier Ed Stafford and his Peruvian pal Cho have reached Tabatinga, near where the borders of Peru, Brazil and Colombia meet. As they head due east toward Manaus, the state capital of Amazonas, they battle bugs, caimans, dehydration and mental fatigue - and a wrong turn proves costly while trying to make it to the river mouth.
In the first of a two-part documentary, former soldier Ed Stafford embarks on a quest to become the first person to walk the entire length of the South American river. He begins his 4,500-mile journey in Peru with friend Luke Collier and native guide Oswaldo, but three months in, he faces the prospect of travelling through a dangerous drug-trafficking area alone when they both threaten to leave the expedition.
