    Story

    On 31st July 2022, I will be taking the first steps of a walking endurance event around Lake Kariba, the world’s largest man made lake by volume, situated on the Zambezi River. Anticipated to take two months to complete, the walk covers approximately 800km, through some of wild Africa’s rawest, most challenging and most beautiful terrain, in the Zambesia region of Southern Africa.

    The reason for this expedition is to raise awareness about the incredible link between the natural world and mental well being and how we need to conserve what’s left of our wild areas, not just for our physical health, but for our mental health as well. The healing power of Nature is incredible – a fact that is being recognised more and more by health professionals as a viable alternative to medical interventions in treating a wide range of mental health issues. The aim behind the walk is to highlight this fact to the rest of the world and to encourage more people to reconnect with the great outdoors for their own well being.

    All funds raised will go towards Zambesia Conservation Alliance (USA 501(c)(3) charity number EIN 85-1713453) and Consolidated Africa Services (Private Voluntary Organisation) (charity number PVO 37/19)
