Description:

Fans of Kingsley Holgate and his wild adventures, tackled fearlessly with his wife Gill and son Ross and a varying band of expedition members, will relish this new series of epic exploits. Always game to venture where many before him have feared to tread, Kingsley and his entourage have set out to honour 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.
