Did the Transkei walk thing in the 80's - East London to Durban - 300km, about 35 nasty fecking dirty shark filled rivers to swim across with a bergin stuffed into a basha and made into a giant floatng thingy.
Was a "holiday" when I retired from the service - must have been completely fecking crazy - first time I did it with some mates - second time I did it alone.
The closest I ever got to was the Otter trail in '82, when I got out. Only 7 rivers, none shark-infested (other than the Storms Mouth). Stood on the suspension bridge and watched a 14' shark swim up the river.
