This week, Charley’s trip starts just south of Durban where he is trying his hand at a spot of surfing amongst some of the country’s largest and fastest waves. Then he faces one of South Africa’s most challenging adventures – successfully navigating the Sani Pass.

Leading up through the mountains towards Lesotho, Charley and team take a car up the treacherously steep and extremely icy path to the summit. This is a nerve-racking drive, during which one false move could see them plunge over a sheer mountain drop.

Continuing their adventure towards the clouds, the team embark on a challenging trek to the top of Tugela Falls, enduring icy cold winds before setting up camp on the summit.
