After being selected out of over 15,000 entrants and a gruelling boot camp elimination process, Fanafikile Lephakha has been granted the opportunity to join South African explorer Riaan Manser as he rows across the Atlantic Ocean.
According to his bio: "Riaan Manser rose to prominence on becoming the first person to cycle around the perimeter of Africa. For over twenty-four months, alone & unaided, he pedalled a staggering 37,000 km through 34 countries, some of which rank as the most dangerous countries on Earth."
He was also the first person to circumnavigate Madagascar by kayak - alone and unaided.
