RIP – Hendri Coetzee – the great white explorer

It appears that the explorer Hendri Coetzee – who wrote the blog the great white explorer is probably no more. He wrote a very insightful last blog about the risks he was taking on his last adventure – Feelings – do they make you soft

As the telegraph link says – “He also had a fantastic social conscience,” he said, explaining that Coetzee ran kayak trips for underprivileged kids in Sudan. “He was one of those people that would look after others not only in a physical sense but also nurture them spiritually and mentally.”

A sad loss indeed but he died doing what he loved best ..
