Path through The Swamp
Go straight and pass the house on the left. The river doesn't have many forks, but the thick mist may cause you to lose your way and start going in circles.
If you encounter water lillies along the way, it means that you are going in the right direction. If you see white symbols on tree roots, turn back and search for another way.
After sometime, torches will become your beacons. Follow the path laid by torches and search for new ones in the distance.
Swimming past alligators
Once you encounter alligators, turn back and approach the torch. Turn left and get closer to the encountered platform.
The heroes will disembark the boat - follow Watson. When you reach a tree by the torches, talk to your aide. Your task now is to shoot down 3 bodies - aim at the spots marked on the screen.
The alligators will start to devour the bodies, allowing you to get past them safely. Return to the boat and continue your journey until you reach the next jetty.
As you reach the island, go forward and turn right. When on the ground, you'll encounter some traces to find in Concentration Mode. Follow the path until you find the camp.
