Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit our Justgiving page and to learning about the Moon Row. 

The Moon Row starts at Devils Gorge on the Zambezi River in Zambia and ends, 500km away, at the border with Mozambique. The Moon Row is an arduous rowing event across the world’s largest man made lake, Lake Kariba, and along one of the most beautiful and wild game reserves: The Lower Zambezi. Lake Kariba is up to 250 km long and 40km wide, and contains crocodiles and hippos with weather conditions on the lake reminiscent of the sea. The Moon Row will involve a team of 12 rowers from the UK and Zambia, rowing in three triple sculling boats. As they cross Lake Kariba, they will be rowing in 90 minute shifts through the day and night, when they will be lit by a "Supermoon". After the team completes the crossing of the lake; they will then row a further 250km along the Lower Zambezi. Accommodation and support has been kindly provided by a number of operators on the Lower Zambezi including Anabezi Lodge; Gwabi River Lodge; Kanyemba Lodge;  Mvuu Lodge; and Redcliff Zambezi River lodge. Support on Lake Kariba is being provided by Lake Kariba Inns and Kariba Bush Club. 

We are supporting two charities: Conservation Lower Zambezi (CLZ) is leading the anti poaching, conservation and educational activities in the Lower Zambezi. Donations to CLZ can be made through the link on the Moon Row Website. We are also supporting the activities of Village Water (VW), who are providing fresh water as well as health and education advice to remote villages. To donate to VW please simply click on the link on this page. Donate to Village Water through the Moon Row today and the UK government will match all donations from UK individuals £1 for £1, enabling Village Water to change twice as many lives through safe water, sanitation and hygiene.


Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Once you donate, JustGiving will send your money directly to the charity, so it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
