Africa Trek is the incredible journey of husband and wife Alex and Sonia Poussin. For three years the French couple walked 8,700 miles across Africa, from the Cape of Good Hope to the Sea of Galilee. During their journey, which they personally filmed, they endured fatigue, extreme thirst, blazing sun, prowling hyenas, malaria and more. But what they discovered along the way was an incredibly generous place rich with heart, humor and life. The Poussins experienced a piece of the world few of us have ever seen, where time and culture are so different from our own. Africa Trek, a twelve-part television series, makes its U.S. debut fall 2008 on public broadcasting (check local listings).
Africa Trek is a production of Gedeon in association with Terranoa and WETA Washington, D.C. Funding for Africa Trek is provided by sanofi-aventis U.S., SWATCH, and Hi-Tec Sports.
