Swimming Africa's Highest Dam

Swimming Africa's Highest Dam

Personal message

Nine swimmers took on what has never been done before and did it with great success.

Emil, Peet, Nadia, Neil, Deon, Cita, Heather, Milton and Owen started the 24.4 km swim at altitude at 7:16 in the morning. For a full 8 hours and 15 minutes, they stuck to their guns and completed this feat in near perfect conditions, bar the headwind which made the last 5 km a battle for one and all.

For many of the swimmers this was their longest swim ever.

The swimmers' mission was upliftment of the local community by raising enough to sponsor a water collection point in the area. The response from the all sponsors and supporters far exceeded the expectation of the team. This means that so much more than then inital goal can be achieived!

Every cent that was raised is appreciated dearly - it makes the hours and hours of preparation so worthwhile.

*This event will be kept open for a limited period for belated donations for this community for whom the bare essentials are a luxury.
