The Journey from Cape Town to Mozambizue
“Mario Rigby, the 30 year old Turks and Caicos Islander – German -Canadian, has made the front cover of the South African Daily Dispatch and South Cape Forum. These and other publications are covering his solo expedition by foot across the entire African continent (from Cape Town, South Africa to Cairo, Egypt), to “over come the unknown” by pushing the outlet limits of his body and mind. ”
“After crossing South Africa, the TCI’s own school boy of Blue Hills and the British West Indies Collegiate has certainly inspired individuals to thrive”.

Last year, Mr. John Galleymore did a solo walk from the island of South Caicos to Providenciales. And his response was this ” When I first thought about undertaking the long solo and unsupported walk from South Caicos to Providenciales, I have to confess it was for purely personal reasons. Although it makes sense that past generations must have walked this route, this would be the first time it would be documented. As the idea developed it became apparent that the event could be used to raise funds for local charities, increase awareness of the outer islands, and give a glimpse of the hardship of life in a bygone era. So, with a lot of help from Claire Parrish at Times Publications/Tradewinds Radio, some very generous sponsors, and a very understanding (yet notably worried) wife, February 11, 2015 was set as the start of a four night/five day adventure of a lifetime.”
