You would think all of the world’s greatest expeditionary challenges have been conquered, but courageous exploits continue to be undertaken by brave men and women every year. Levison Wood is such a man, his bold challenge is to walk the full length of the River Nile. This 4,250 mile epic will consume a year of his time and take him through Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Sudan and conclude on the Mediterranean shores of Egypt.
Speaking of his journey, which began just this week, he said, “Walking the Nile is not just the most memorable and demanding expedition I’ve ever undertaken. It’s an amazing opportunity for me to report on all the incredibly positive stories that come out of Africa. Physically and mentally challenging, it will push me to the limit, requiring levels of resilience and determination that just cannot be prepared for. Despite the inherent risks, I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
