Ash Dykes – Surviving Madagascar at the Lights in Andover

  • Written by Editor

What's on in Andover | Ash Dykes – Surviving Madagascar at the Lights in Andover | Andover & VillagesJoin National Adventurer of the Year, Ash Dykes when he visits The Lights on 12 April, and prepare to be inspired!

Following his debut tour in 2015 with Breaking Mongolia – covering his solo, unsupported walk across Mongolia – Ash’s new show features his most recent record-breaking, world-first crossing of Madagascar, the world’s fourth largest island, trekking 1600 miles in 155 days and climbing eight of the island’s highest mountains along the way.

In Surviving Madagascar, National Adventurer of the Year two years running, Ash Dykes tells the story of how he came to take on his daring expeditions, before recounting his latest adventure; how he contracted the deadliest strain of Malaria, was held up by the military, dodged bandits, received nasty spider bites, built a raft for a dangerous river crossing, was almost washed away - at night - by another crocodile-infested river and had to hack his way through near-impenetrable jungle as he became the first person ever to traverse the length of Madagascar’s interior.
