Hope for the Future expedition – finishing what we started

By Caiden Lang There are few greater feelings than the feeling of accomplishment that comes from finishing what you started. Paddling into Senga bay was one of the best moments of my life.  But I am getting a bit ahead of myself… Spending a week with the families was incredible. I think we each put […]

Hope for the Future: Mother Nature strikes again

By Guy Robertson Our kayak was stacked onto a, now fully loaded, coal truck en route to the lake. With heads held high and spirits rejuvenated the team was ready to attack the next leg of our journey to Likoma Island. Once in the water the double kayak seemed to be running smoothly again. The […]

Hope for the Future: taking the good with the bad

Tanzania: first week of stage three By Matt Hampson Day 40 has definitely been our worst day yet. We woke up to gale force winds which, on this side of the lake, is a head wind and thus smashes you straight in the face and is extremely difficult to paddle in. We decided to push […]

By Guy Robertson A celebration was in order last night due to the crossing of the first 100kms, but we found ourselves falling asleep at the dinner table, like the majority of the nights on our adventure so far. Our days usually start around 5:45am, when the sun peeps over mountains on the Eastern borders […]

Hope for the Future expedition: We’ve made it this far!

By Matt Hampson We are currently 57kms into our journey, just north of the fishing town Kombedza. Upon our arrival on the beach, we were immediately welcomed by the village chief who said that we could stay the night for free. I now know why they call this beautiful country ‘The warm heart of Africa’. […]

What we plan to do is to kayak the entire circumference of Lake Malawi. httpv:// When planning started approximately 5 months ago, our aim was to kayak the coastline of Mozambique. Due to […]
