Incompatibility is the key, 10 June 2009
Author: chopendoz from Australia

I was interested in the subject matter and found the first two episodes quite entertaining. However, there was a tendency towards the 'Oh, Wow!' style of travel documentary where every event is a crisis and over exaggerated. It seems to be the practice by the producers of such programs to make a team of people most likely to be incompatible and this is the source of tension throughout the series. I wonder what the Masai really thought of them. Quite possibly they could have walked the whole way unaided in half the time. It showed how pampered westerners are. The Masai would just 'get on with it' and argue a lot less. I have no doubt that the team will succeed in the end but the trip did not need the 'blow by blow' treatment in my opinion. I realise that it is made for armchair travellers but it would have been more interesting if they had recorded the survivalist member doing the trip on his own.
