Durbanites to paddle 200km of the Incomati River

After months of vigorous training, a group of brave Durbanites set off on the 16th May for a 10-day adventure of a lifetime.

Their goal…to pioneer, explore and paddle +-200km of the Incomati River, which spans from the Kruger National Park, South Africa to the Bay of Maputo, Mozambique. They will be braving the weather, water and untamed wildlife, including hippos and crocs (and I am not talking about the ones you wear!)

As a part of their adventure the team will be collecting water samples on behalf of the UKZN Hydrology Department and The Lawrence Anthony Earth Organisation. These water samples will assist in better management of this wild water system as well as to promote conservation.

To the team, Geoffrey and Hayley Dutton, Andrew Kemp, Clinton Graaf, Lyle Ground, Nicholas Israelsson, Hartley and Lauren Bulcock and their photographer Pascal Bennett – GOOD LUCK!
