Kayak The Kwanza
In August 2015, Oscar Scafidi and Alfy Weston set out to kayak and hike 1,300km along Angola’s longest river, the Kwanza.
This is the story of their 33-day expedition in a 1960s Klepper collapsible kayak as they journey through some of the last remaining wilderness areas in Africa. Enroute they avoid hippo attacks, waterfalls and security forces but are arrested at gunpoint, almost drown, take part in a diamond mine rescue and display incredible courage.
The journey was in support of The HALO Trust, the oldest and largest humanitarian landmine clearance organisation in the world.
The authors will be donating 25% of the book profits to support The HALO Trust's continued work in Angola.
