A Solo Walk Across Africa - Fran Sandham

Critically acclaimed author and public speaker Fran Sandham took on the challenge of a lifetime, by walking across Africa solo from coast to coast. His 3,000-mile walk from the Atlantic on Namibia’s Skeleton Coast to the Indian Ocean near Zanzibar was the first time on record anyone has crossed Africa solo entirely on foot by this route.

A former editor of Rough Guides, Fran has also written freelance for many newspapers and magazines including the Daily Telegraph, the Observer and the Financial Times. His book "Traversa: A solo walk across Africa" received terrific reviews on both sides of the Atlantic and was serialised in the Sunday Times.
