Cape to Cairo
Cape to Cairo chronicles the epic journey of Kingsley Holgate, his wife and son across the continent as they venture along South Africa’s Wild Coast, up the magnificent Okavango Delta, along the length of the great Zambezi River and across some of Africa’s greatest lakes, including Victoria, Tanganyika and Turkana. The romantic in Kingsley leads him up the east coast in the wake of Arab dhows, while his sense of history makes it imperative that he seek out the source of the mighty Nile. The journal of the adventure is a rich weave of daily challenges, historical titbits and a record of the diverse cultures and natural wonders that this group of intrepid travellers encounters.
