Relentless sun, wild animal attacks, crossing countries in crisis...

Three years, eleven countries, 1,200 families, 14,000 kilometers of adventures while walking in the footsteps of mankind through the Cradle of Life.

Remarkable French couple, Alexandre and Sonia Poussin, embarked on a rare and epic journey through Africa, from the Cape of Good Hope to the Sea of Galilee entirely on foot. In a three-year trek along the Great Rift Valley of East Africa, their goal was to symbolically retrace the passage of early Man, from Australopithecus to Modern Man. Without sponsors, without a support team and sharing in the poverty of their hosts, the Poussins tell us of the enthusiastic generosity of their African counterparts as they partake in an unfamiliar, yet warmer way of life.

β€œTo say that reading Africa Trek is [an] inspirational story is an understatement. It is an experience, reminding us [of] the importance of slow travel to truly discover the essence of culture, environment and ourselves.” – Anna, WEND Magazine
