Hendri Coetzee’s book

Hendri Coetzee loved exploration. He lived for that moment when you left the known, settled your fears and entered the darkness. Africa gave him the perfect environment to live out this passion, and he grabbed it, with both hands. Hendri was a paddler by profession but a true adventurer by heart and rose to be one of the most respected paddlers in the world, even though he was known mostly only by other paddlers. He chose to stay out of the limelight. He made first descents on some of Africa’s remotest rivers and at times kayaked solo on waterways that most of us have never even heard of.

Tragically, in 2010, deep in the heart of the Congo, Hendri was taken from his kayak by a crocodile, and never seen again. Before he left on what was to be his final expedition, he mailed a manuscript capturing more than a decade of his expeditions in his own words, to a few close friends. That manuscript is now a book and is a vivid and thrilling account of a true African adventurer at the peak of his game. It is an adrenaline-filled ride through the waterways of Africa and into the mind of one of the greatest explorers you have never heard of.
