David Lemon, 70, has become the first person to walk the length of the Zambezi River. He caught malaria three times, had to dodge crocodiles while bathing and walked the last 60km with his legs covered in bandages from ulcers. David lives in France Lynch  reached Chinde in Mozambique on Sunday, September 7, after a combined total of 292 days of walking. This clip is part 32 of the walk; you can see the other films here.

The Zimbabwe-born journalist and author began his journey along Africa’s fourth longest river in March 2012 – completing a distance of 3,200km. See more from the Stroud News and Journal here.
