The last leg of our journey was exceedingly difficult. Mawuli led us into a narrow canyon that from a distance appeared to split a massive table plateau.
We left the camel with some others in a pen situated at the widest spot, and continued on.
Our path dead ended where the two walls met. We then made a switchback that climbed the face of the canyon wall.
Tomas and Mawuli had to boost, first Elijah, then me, up and over the last obstacle at the top.
As we walked the slope to the higher end of the plateau, our friend the Purser, ran down to greet us.
Arm in arm he lead us to his encampment and his wife Mary.
