We finally made it to Koina safe and sound, although on the final leg up to the start point our smaller support boat hit rocks just below the surface of the water! Luckily none of us on the boat (nor the kayak) were hurt and we managed to continue to Koina, our start point. Unfortunately the boat suffered some pretty bad damage and my mum is bringing a replacement propeller up to us tomorrow. We started our first kayaking session in the blazing 2pm sun and managed 13.2miles (21.3km) in 2.5hrs before having to stop for some food and a swim.
We are on target for completing in roughly ten days… The variables of hippos, tides and rough water are the only things that might affect that – only time will tell.
