Boorman riding across South Africa for documentary

Charley Boorman crossing South Africa for Channel Five TV series 'Extreme Frontiers'

CELEBRITY adventurer Charley Boorman has set off on his second Extreme Frontiers voyage riding a BMW R1200GS Adventure across South Africa for his Channel 5 TV series.

Following on from his Canadian adventure - which is available to watch online here - Boorman will spend six weeks travelling around South Africa for a four-episode documentary that will air later this year. He will experience shark diving without a cage, climbing up and abseiling down Table Mountain and learning how to fly a fan-powered paramotor aircraft.

Charley has once again opted for BMW machinery and will use the R1200GS Adventure for his Extreme Frontiers trip.

He said: “I’m very excited to be setting off on our second Extreme Frontiers adventure, and it’s the perfect trip for my R1200GS Adventure. South Africa has such a mix of terrain and climate that there’s really no other motorcycle that could do the job so well.

“Ever since I first journeyed to South Africa with Ewan I have always had a real affection for the country. South Africa is one of the most beautiful places on earth, rich in culture, landscape and people, and I feel really privileged and excited to be able to spend six weeks riding around it on my BMW GS Adventure.”
