Follow adventurer's Solo Walk Across Africa
Dedicated explorer Julian Monroe Fisher is tackling his most gruelling expedition to date - 'Equatoria - a Walk across Africa'; a 4000 mile trek from Mozambique to Angola. Julian is noted primarily for his exploration of the African continent, but is also an anthropologist, a published author and a documentary filmmaker. He said, "The primary objective of The Walk Across Africa Expedition is to raise awareness of human rights of all people regardless of where they live in the world. I especially want to create awareness of the work carried out by the Mines Advisory Group - MAG International. I want to raise as much money that will go towards community projects such as schools or hospitals in villages along the trail in Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia and Angola." Julian will be using a tent and rucksacks supplied by Vango; he'll be sleeping in an Ultralite thermal sleeping bag on his journey through Africa; why not bag one for yourself? The Ultralite is recommended for use in extreme and varying climate conditions, while still offering a lightweight and compact size. As well as other kit provided by Vango, Julian will be using a Cargo 120l bag which is ideal for carrying lots of equipment on long-term treks like this one. To date, Julian has conducted expeditions in over eighty-five countries around the globe and has led six successful expeditions to the African continent, four of which were Explorers Club flag expeditions. In addition, from 1996 to 2003, he travelled the world on a continuous trek across five continents for a total of over 345,000 miles.
