    Default "Crossing the Congo" - a new book

    Hurst Publishers have just released a new book (September 2016) "Crossing the Congo" by Mike Martin, Chloe Baker and Charlie Hatch-Barnwell. It tells of their intrepid and hair-raising journey in a 25 year old short wheel base Land Rover from Kinshasha, DRC to Juba, South Sudan. The journey was in 2013. They were lucky to get through alive and with their Land Rover intact.

    Here is a YouTube taster of their incredible journey.

    I read it a month or so ago. Great book, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Excellent photography paired along with well written candid prose about not only how they did the trip but also the struggle and strain it put on each other. I felt it was written at a much higher level than the average travelogue.

    Fantastic, check it out.

    Also if you're into crossing the DRC check out this absolutely riveting trip report of driving across the DRC: http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...kinshasa-53285
