The event organisers, Heidi and Stephan Muller have already experienced what Swaziland has to offer: “We’ve cycled through game reserves, paddled on flat-water, white-water and even in an irrigation canal. We’ve jumped into rivers, abseiled into caves and used Jumars to get up waterfalls. On foot we’ve crossed mountains, agricultural expanses and forests… There’s just so much to this small country.”

Expedition is scheduled to take place from 5 to 14 June 2015. Please visit the Expedition Africa“>website for additional information.
