Family Sampson in Tanzania at Christmas 2018

Africa Clockwise is the name of the epic journey stand-up comedian Mark Sampson, writer Sam Pearce and their children Ruby and Zola are undertaking around the circumference of the continent in their Big Green Truck, fuelled by recycled waste vegetable oil and solar power.

We want to inspire others to:

With our ecological clock ticking, the Sampsons are on a mission to investigate how Africa can show the world how to cope with climate change. The journey in the Big Green Truck is ‘clockwise’ – both as a direction, and as an awareness: time now is crucial and we all need to wake up and take proactive steps to prepare for an environmentally compromised future.

Africa Clockwise is also a quest to discover whether it is possible for their kids to live happily without wifi or water on tap – like the majority of the continent’s children. A quest to investigate whether a future without fossil-fuelled luxuries may not be such a bad thing, helping us to focus on quality of life experiences, not quantity of possessions.

    Hello Mark,
    I love what you are doing and the reasons behind it. I’ve not been to Africa but suspect that I’ll learn a lot from following your blog. Getting right to the point I hope you don’t mind that I’ve done a pingback to your blog for my readers to find you and read about your journey.
    My journey has been a different one, I moved to Russia over 2 years ago to be with my new wife here. I started a blog to share about life in Russia. Then while blogging I started a section called mirror reflections, it’s a way for others to see that Russia isn’t the big bad wolf so to speak. It has become the center of my blog connecting cultures together allowing the to see the similarities we all share.

  6. What w worthwhile ‘adventure’ which I will be following with great interest. Am very piques to know how u manage without ‘water on tap’ something us urbanites take for granted.
    But I’m interested how , NOT having a tv. Will influence the children especially. I’m sure they will become even more aware of their surroundings and become more perceptive human beings.
