BEYOND SAHARA – RIDING FROM CAIRO TO CAPE TOWN
Tackling one of Biking’s Greatest Challenges
In a thrilling follow-up to Beyond Siberia (2 x 60’), this documentary, presented and narrated by iconic motorcycle adventurer, Charley Boorman (Long Way Round, Long Way Down), follows 16 motorbike riders across 20,000 grueling kilometers through Africa. For 80 days, they battle blazing heat, treacherous roads, suffocating bureaucracy and bone-crunching crashes, attempting to join a very elite group of people to have conquered this journey. Riding the vast savannahs and witnessing the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle on the African plains, the riding gets tough as they battle through gravel, sand, dirt and spectacular lightning storms across Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa. It’s an incredible journey of vast sandy deserts, high mountain passes and never-ending savannahs on roads and tracks which are among the most dangerous in the world.
