SAA and Charley Boorman

From Atta's Lead Sponsor SAA

Follow in the footsteps of Charley Boorman’s South African Adventure. On Wednesday, 9th January at 8pm, seasoned traveller Charley Boorman takes to our screens on Channel 5 in his new TV show, Charley Boorman’s South African Adventure, sponsored by South African Airways.

The four-part series sees Charley traverse over 6,000 miles of this beautiful country on his motorcycle. South African Airways flew Charley and the TV crew on their adventure to film the show in South Africa in June 2012. Starting his journey in Cape Town, abseiling above the city from the peak of the iconic Table Mountain, he embarks on a journey of extremes. His experiences include cage diving with deadly Great White Sharks; navigating the incredibly precarious Sani Pass; tracking lions on foot in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and searching the ocean floor for the perfect diamond in the ship wreck-strewn West Coast. His incredible trip culminates in a huge motorbike convoy down to Signal Hill in Cape Town accompanied by over 250 local riders.

To mark the launch of Charley Boorman’s South African Adventure on Channel 5 this month, South African Airways and South African Tourism, have created a dedicated microsite ( which follows the expedition’s route, showcasing some of the highlights of the trip and providing information on how you can follow in Charley’s tyre treads. To help budding adventurers get started, South African Airways have generously donated two return flights to Johannesburg.  To be in with a chance to win, simply answer 10 easy questions and ‘like’ the Facebook pages of South African Airways and South Africa Tourism at:
