Africa: In the Footsteps of the Great Explorers. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: Always game to venture where many before him have feared to tread, Kingsley and his entourage have set out to honor those tough, courageous early explorers of the African continent. David Livingstone, Henry Morton Stanley, Frederick Courtney Selous, John Hanning Speke and others all faced starvation, fever and often death to open up Africa to the Western world. Like these brave and tenacious individuals, the Holgate party tackle mighty rivers such as the Nile, Congo, Rovuma and Rufiji, negotiating angry rapids, thrashing with crocodiles and startling territorial hippos. Circumnavigating Africa’s greatest lakes - Niassa, Victoria and Tanganyika - they battle demonic high winds and water, and endure the blistering furnace of the desolate lava-bouldered Jade Sea’s shores. These are tales of such daring, courage and endurance that it’s impossible for readers to tire of the Kingsley family’s high adventures.
About the Author: Kingsley Holgate's name is synonymous with adventure, not only in Africa, but thanks to his National Geographic documentaries, also worldwide. Inspired by the African explorers of old - the likes of Livingstone and Speke - Kingsley and his family have undertaken a number of epic trips across the African continent in the past decade. While travelling, the self-described 'romantic adventurer' and his team make their own documentaries, recording the traditional cultures and the variety of fauna and flora en route. Despite his love of travel and adventure, Kingsley's roots are planted firmly in Zululand. He lives with his wife Gill at Zinkwasi Beach, on the KwaZulu-Natal north coast.
