After 5 months on foot in 2012 and 2013 between Zanzibar and Jinja (Uganda), passing through all the sources announced, the expedition will end in 2014 after a final fieldwork.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

Several thousand kilometers on foot alone for a deep dive in the heart of Africa, from the sea to its highest peaks.

MYTHS OF THE NIL is an expedition around the geographical Nile, its sources and tributaries, still sometimes discussed, and on the legends and beliefs of the peoples who live by the river. Led by Christian Clot mainly solo, it aims to better understand the different aspects of the most legendary of the whole river!

An experience where each step constitutes a new discovery.

The aim of the expedition is to better understand the interest aroused by the Nile and its basin for thousands of years until today. Many

Christian Clot, researcher-explorer for more than 20 years, is a specialist in expeditions in hostile environments. In 2016 he launched his new ADAPTATION - 4 × 30 DAYS expedition: the successive crossing of the 4 most extreme environments on the planet to better study the adaptation capacities of the human body.

Our world is changing, crises follow one another - economic, social, terrorist, environmental - and no one knows what will happen tomorrow. Whether we like it or not, we're going to have to adapt ...

To better understand our ability to adapt to rapid changes and extreme conditions, Christian Clot made 4 solo crossings in the world's most difficult climates between August 2016 and March 2017.
The opportunity to study the capacities of adaptation, decision-making and stress management and the notions of motivation, imagination, collaboration or leadership. How to surpass yourself in difficult times? How to find the motivation to continue when all seems lost? What are the keys that allow us to seek out unsuspected resources within ourselves?
So many great challenges for questions likely to arise for everyone, individuals, teams, families, companies… To better prepare ourselves for them, it is necessary to study the adaptation mechanisms of Man in, and more particularly its cognition, a field never before studied as such in real situations.

Adapting better is the big challenge for tomorrow: it is the goal of ADAPTATION.

have marked out the course, in order to better understand the current realities of the countries of its main basin:

  • Why its sources (here from the White Nile) have generated so much controversy that is still topical?

  • How are countries and peoples built today after centuries of slave trade - the abolition of which is not so old - and many internal conflicts not always resolved?

  • Life at the edge of the river whose waters, so important, are subject to important political negotiations which exclude the local people.
