“Wanted. Men for hazardous journey. Low wages. Bitter cold. Long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in the event of success.”
Ernest Shackleton’s 1907 ad in London’s Times, recruiting a crew to sail with him on his exploration to the South Pole.
It’s the ultimate adventure!
South African explorers will climb to the summits of the highest mountain on each of the 7 continents and paraglide off them. No-one as yet has flown from the top of all seven summits and this will raise the bar in extreme adventure and exploration. They will share their experience via photographs, video and blogs from the most remote and fragile corners of the earth. This will allow others to realize their potential for our planet and will raise money for The Trust, a charity aimed at assisting the underprivileged in reaching for their own dreams.
