06:00 PM – 06:30 PM
The team was detained for four days in Agadez in Nigeria and sometimes had to brave the elements, camping the wild, in what is unknown territory. Two weeks after they went through Maiduguri in Nigeria, more than 150 people were killed in civil unrest.
The highlights of the journey include the visit to the Pelican 16, a South African Air Force Shakleton that crash landed in the Western Sahara in 1994, the visit to Goree Island, just off Dakar, the visit to the South African built library in Timbuktu.
The eventual journey was completed in 96 days, and the team travelled just over 23 000 kilometres.
“Tracking down the Western Parts of Africa, having experienced close brush ups with the Nigerian law along the way, Johan Badenhorst and team Voetspore remained encouraged in their goal, that they ensured that this season was filmed in a more captivating, informative yet captivating manner. SABC2 could not be more proud to inform viewers that this season promises to be the best of its kind thus far,” enthused Zandile Nkonyeni, publicity manager, SABC2.
The series airs every Friday at 18:00, only on SABC2. Repeats on Sunday at 14:00.
