South Africa welcomes home environmental campaigner Benny Bushwhacker, the only man to have thrice walked the length of Africa barefoot. The legend returns to share what it takes to survive the African bush… and for the African bush to survive.

Benny Bushwhacker, aka Ben Voss, also made headlines for banging heads with swashbuckling British survivalist Bear Grylls. He will be touring South Africa’s theatres and festivals with an hilarious, sobering look at the collision between humans and environment.

For somebody who has spent more time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life than a hibernating Arctic wood frog, Benny Bushwhacker brings untainted humanity and delicious humour to his performance.

He will alo be raising awareness and moola for the Lebombo Leopard Human Conflict Survey. And while leopards are not known to change their spots, through this initiative Benny will try to help humans to do so.

His experiences have been translated from bush to page by his unofficial biographer, John van de Ruit, (Spud) and from page to stage by Janice Honeyman. Book your Benny Bushwhacker tickets at the following outlets:
