On the 16th August 2010, explorer/adventurer Kate Leeming completed an incredible expedition – a ten-month, 22,040 kilometre journey across Africa from Pointe des Almadies, Senegal to Cape Hafun, Puntland, Somalia. Kate’s journey was not only a physical quest but an odyssey to highlight the development needs and activities of war-torn and poverty-stricken nations.
Cycling through twenty countries in an unbroken line, Kate aimed to find out what is being done to give a ‘leg up’ rather than a ‘hand out’ – to shine a positive light on the issues, cultures and geography of Africa. What she discovered would change her life forever. Kate Leeming’s amazing journey continuously reveals the truth of Africa and its diverse people and cultures in a way that could only be seen on a bicycle.” 131mins
