Shame they don't do more for children in this country and I doubt whether they will really be roughing it at any time on this "ordeal".  An ordeal is when you are sent out into the bush and have to fend for yourself for the next week or more, not paddling down some rough water in an inflatable with a film and support crew!

None of this money will end up where it is needed anyway as we have been shown what happens to all the charity money/aid that goes into African areas - ends up used to buy arms or in the bank account of yet another corrupt African official!

Been there and done it.  It was the most exciting white water rafting I have ever done (actually the only one I have ever done) and Number 13 is the worst, or best.  I was lucky I was a short swimmer (which means I kept hold of the raft) others were long swimmers and there are 12 ft crocodiles waiting in the still water for the unlucky ones. The hundred mile canoe trip before the white water was fantastic and included a stand off with a lioness with no gun.  Oh yes they are going to have one fantastic time.

Just a few has beens  hoping for a mention in the honours list. I said that would happen through the Olympics, and it did.
Winners of medals getting awards. It's disgraceful. They should go to someone  who deserves it. Someone who has done something for the country and made a difference. Olympics medallists do not do it for the country, they do it for their over-inflated egos as did some of the so-called stars of entertainment.  I was fully convinced that Beckham was after  a Knighthood.  And he's still trying, along with many others. I think that is the reason the Beckham's have come back home, to be nearer to people who can help him along the way. Sebastian Coe, for one instance.

Been there and done it!  The Zambezi flows at 12kph so it's not hard paddling downstream.  The rapids are fun though.

 

Maybe they'll row against the flow.  That would be a challenge?
