Intrigued by Russ Cook’s remarkable run across Africa, Post Magazine delves into the possibility of creating the world’s longest walk on Google Maps, highlighting notable sites along the way and considering countries to avoid.

Russ Cook’s extraordinary journey, spanning 16,300km from Cape Agulhas to Tunisia, captured global attention as he became the first person documented to have traversed the entire length of Africa on foot. His 352-day odyssey through 16 countries showcased both endurance and determination, inspiring others with his feat.

Motivated by Cook’s accomplishment, the quest to map out an even longer route began. The hypothetical itinerary, meticulously crafted to navigate visa regulations, sealed borders, and conflict zones, spans an estimated 5,532 hours of walking time.

One of the lesser-known stops along the proposed route is Plaatjieskraal Ghost Town in South Africa, a hidden gem that came to light through Cook’s journey. His adventure serves as a reminder of the hidden wonders waiting to be discovered amidst the vast landscapes traversed during such epic expeditions.
