Most of the Aconcagua team made it back to SA safely yesterday. Lorna remains in Argentina to climb other mountains and spend some time in Patagonia. The trip in brief: - our route was fantastic - we even had the camps to ourselves for the first 2 nights, and the 'False Polish' route proved to be both tough, scenic, and much less densely populated than the normal route on the way up, while the normal route provided welcome human contact and a different perspective on the way down.

And then there was the weather. It poured an entire monsoon during the night, and it was clear things were going to be wet on the moon, despite this being the ‘dryest’ season.

146 Kilograms of luggage "I am sorry gentlemen, we will have to charge you for excess luggage". 6:30am in the morning, Paul and myself dig deep into our charm reserves and after 20 minutes are oh so close to the desk clerks turning a blind eye on our excess, they were fascinated by two blokes trying to get on a plane with an inflatable canoe (Croc), paddles and accessories but then senior management arrives and no way we are getting away with anything ( unless we pay a generous spot fine that is ).

The spirit of exploration and enviromental conservation, a core tenent of the Society, is as alive in this century as it was in the last. To prove it we ran a competition  during the year 2000 to find an expedition worthy of our support. Did we find it !
The results have been announced and we wish the winners the best of luck in the artic wastes. We are proud to be associated with Lukas Grobler and are sure that his incredible drive and determination will make this a first for a South African.

 Or, Through Binga To Binga

There had surely never been a trip quite like it, even in the long history of Zambezi exploration. The bare outline, for anyone who hasn't heard yet, was a follows. Three of the Explorer rafts shot the world-famous white-water Stretch,

from below Victoria Falls to where the Zambezi gives way to Lake Kariba at Deka Mouth (Stage 1). At Deka, outboard motors were attached to the rafts and a cruise across Kariba began (Stages 2 and 3). One motor and one raft were

 The N2 crosses the river near Quimbu and served as a good put-in. with 209km to the mouth of the Umzimvubu, and with the fairly rough Umzimvubu trip still fresh in our minds, we felt pretty apprehensive. To put ourselves a bit at ease, we recced the sections both above and below the Falls, as these were the steepest parts according to our river profile. In the first few days, however, the river was kind to us, allowing us to first find our feet. The gorge was beautiful & lush, liberally sprinkled with shining yellow acacias. Bird-life was ample.
