Cairo - Cape Town Hitchhiking Tour

Green Elephant Foundation is the "golden sponsor" of the hitchhiking expedition made by the Broken Compass across Africa.


The journey is taken by a sole vounteer who starts it in March 2016 in Cairo and aims to finish it a year later in Cape Town.


It aims to learn about women's life in visited African countries, increase cultural awareness, create a series of guides and videoblogs on traveling across Africa which will be particularly focused on female travelers. It aims also to find traces of famous historical female travelers (e.g. Delia Akeley, Florence Baker) but also of the Polish traveler Kazimierz Nowak.
