Bob Baigrie and three friends took on the challenge in July 2023 - an eight-day ascent to one of the world’s least commonly climbed summits, Margherita Peak with Africa’s largest remaining glaciers.
There followed a pilgrimage to find the sources of the White Nile, the remote location of Ernest Hemingway’s disastrous plane crash at Murchison falls and finally, a gorilla, chimp, and birding odyssey through Uganda, justifiably named The pearl of Africa.
This slide and video presentation tells these stories as well as their own eight-day trek through the stunning vegetative zones and bogs in Wellington boots, and then the glaciered summit in crampons.
