The weeks excitement is coming to a serious halt with final preparations coming in play as teams ready themselves for tomorrow's Expedition Africa 2018 start. Doringbaai will host all 52 teams ashore before t he Team Captains are escorted across the bay to collect their tracker. Local fisherman chartering their fishing boats will transport 6 team representatives at a time to a marshal based out at sea. Once all 52 teams have received their tracker, Heidi and Stephan Muller will trigger the start and teams will officially take on their first 19km trekking leg of the estimated 560km course. Local media, community members and supporters are able to witness this excitement from 08h00 from the Doringbaai pier tomorrow morning. 14 checkpoints are to be collected within the first leg, followed by a 50km paddle and 37km trek, bringing them to transition three. On receipt of their first set of maps, navigators were only able to plot the first three legs of the 8 legged event, ensuring the element of mystery is kept intact.
