27 March 2014. Prieska. Roche Schoeman has completed 1411kms of the mighty Orange River which is in full flood. Two dams of still water are behind him but the most challenging leg of the non-stop, unaided expedition is yet to come……… the dangerous, churning waters of unknown obstacles through Upington leading to the Augrabies gorge.
With the flow as it is today, Roche will complete his swim at Alexander Bay, almost a month before the expected date. What has continued to motivate Roche is the incredible support and hospitality offered by ALL South Africans along the river.
