Supported by Channel 5, Charley Boorman and Russ Malkin are visiting South Africa, where they have been taking part in such adventures as shark diving, abseiling down Table Mountain, and paramotoring, amongst many others.
As part of the six week expedition, adventurer Charley spent time flying a Parajet Volution 2 Macro amongst the vibrant, beautiful skies of Zulu Nyala. “It was a difficult and nerve-wracking takeoff,” explains Charley. “The flight wasn’t at all easy and you’ll see why on the finished TV show, but for now let me just say that it was an exhilarating ride and I can’t wait to do it better next time.” Before embarking on the expedition Charley had spent a week paramotor training with Parajet Team pilot Dean Eldridge near the factory in Dorset.
Exploring everything South Africa has to offer, the expedition will be shown on Channel 5 later in 2012 and follows on from the success of the Extreme Frontiers - Canada series shown in 2011.
