||Central African Gold
Central African Gold have made a cash contribution
to this humanitarian expedition as well as providing logistical
and other support in Ghana and Mali – hard support.
Soft support has been the launch of anti malaria awareness
campaigns in the regions in which Central African Gold operate.
Why did you feel it was necessary to do this?
As an African focused mining company that believes that
Africa and its people are the cornerstone of our business,
we thought it appropriate to support an effort to impact
on a disease that affects our people, their families and
the communities we are involved with. We also identify with
the entrepreneurial nature of Kingsley’s expeditions
in the way we explore and do business in Africa.
Vestergaard Frandsen has committed more than 10,000
lifesaving insecticide-treated PermaNet® to this expedition.
We share Kingsley Holgate’s fierce dedication to helping
those most in need fight the world’s number one killer
of children, malaria.

GEMINI MARINE has supported Kingsley's adventures since
his first expedition when he followed the African rift from
Cape Town to Cairo.
Gemini provided customised expeditionary boats that were
required. GEMINI did so with pride in the knowledge that
they were supporting the excellent humanitarian contributions
that the Holgate family and their crew were making to people
in need. At the same time, who better than Kingsley Holgate
to put our GEMINI boats to the ultimate test. Together with
GEMINI & Yamaha the Holgates can now reach the unreachable
and get in contact with the Africans in need on the smaller
Gemini is honoured to be involved with the Holgates.
Yamaha sponsored Kingsley an EF2400is generator and
2 Yamaha 30-HP 2-stroke outboards.
Our investment in Kingsley is one way that we as Yamaha
Distributors can reinvest in the humanitarian effort which
affects our customer base which is Southern Africa. The
products that we’ve provided him with, enables Kingsley
to have access over the water to so many small villages
and the generator gives him the ability to communicate with
modern technology to the world.
“Cooper Tires’ performance in these extreme
conditions was simply outstanding – they’re
probably one of the most must-have items of off-road equipment
for African conditions!” says Kingsley Holgate.
Cooper Tires, distributed by Dunlop, are proud long-term
sponsors of Kingsley Holgate’s expeditions, and welcomed
the chance to sponsor the Outside Edge team.
Kingsley and his team are distributing impregnated
mosquito nets throughout Afrika, this in mind it is very important
for them to record the exact location the nets have been distributed.
The GPS information gathered by the expedition is submitted
to USAID, this augments “Saving Lives through Adventure”,
should nets need to be replenished this can be done as the
dates and location have been recorded.
We sponsored 2 x GPSMAP 276’s and a smaller Quest
SA for when they need the versatility of a motor vehicle
and a handheld device as well as a donation of R50 000,
00 towards the purchase of more nets.
