About Great Africa
Approaching twenty years of exploration on the African continent – leading expeditions from coast to coast, north to south and east to west – American Anthropologist and modern day explorer Julian Monroe Fisher decided to set out upon a journey retracing the overland routes of the Victorian age explorers across Africa.
The expedition will have him retracing the African expeditionary routes of the famed Victorian explorers including Baker, de Brazza, Speke, Grant, Burton, Baumann, Wissman, Livingstone and Stanley.
The curfew starts in 1.5 hours so we have returned to base camp here at The Logali House in Juba. Our plan is in place to depart in the morning for Torit.
Start of the Expedition
Good morning from Juba, the capital of South Sudan! Although all roads out of Juba are reportedly closed to travel and there is a curfew in place from 6pm to 6am, on the surface the situation at the airport as well as the drive into town were just as typical as any other day on the African continent.
