Malachite is an enthralling account of an overland journey from Cape Town to London, across the length of Africa. Written in a deeply personal style, the book takes the reader not only into the wilds of the central African jungle and the sands of the Sahara desert, but into the tensions and anxieties of this group of travellers with widely differing temperaments.

The group's no-bribe policy leads to many hair-raising interactions. Out of Africa there is always something new, and Malachite is filled with the beauty, warmth and spontaneity the continent has to offer, as well as taking one deep inside the challenges of travelling so intimately with perfect strangers.
