Description

Three years after Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman circumnavigated the globe on their motorcycles in the series Long Way Round, the long time friends are taking to the road again. They undertake one of the toughest of all overland motorcycle journeys, starting at John O’Groats, Scotland and journeying 15,000 miles south through the gruelling terrain of the African continent to their final destination – Cape Town, South Africa. Their profound love of adventure and motorcycles takes Ewan and Charley from Scotland, through England, France, Italy, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, and Namibia – finishing 85 long days later in Cape Town. Along the way they stop to experience the richness of African culture, swap stories with locals, and visit a number of the continent’s UNICEF, CHAS and Riders for Health sites. Riding through savannah, desert coastline, mountains and jungle, the men will face challenges both physical and emotional. Long Way Down promises thrills and adventure and is sure to be the journey of lifetime.

    I've watched the series twice and just finished the book so I feel it's a good time to give a proper review. This could have easily been another overproduced reality show piece of crap but the way the project was put together feels so natural. It's such an amazing journey Ewan and Charley were able to share. It gives the audience the feeling like they are riding along. It also gives such an amazing perspective on Africa that the general eye never sees. This program has inspired me to go on my own adventures.

    I LOVE this documentary. And I don't even like riding motorcycles! It's a true buddy adventure. I love to travel in the way Ewan and Charlie do-taking the back roads, getting to know the local people and finding the quiet, isolated spots and appreciating nature. Highly recommend!
