It took Ontario explorer Mario Rigby more than two years to walk, paddle, and sail 12,000 kilometres across Africa; from South Africa to Egypt. By the time he saw the peaks of the pyramids, the 32-year-old had traipsed through eight countries, been shot at, jailed, attacked by snakes, and had nearly drowned. He also came across a unique brand of hospitality. Rigby talks to Nam Kiwanuka about his 800 days travelling the vast continent.
