Learn more about Chaz Powell

Chaz Powell is a UK adventurer and expedition leader who has over 15 years of remote travel and expedition experience, completing a lot of long-distance treks all over the world. He undertook his biggest challenge to date in 2017, walking 2000 miles over 137 days from source to sea along the Zambezi river. Continuing on the theme of rivers, he has now just completed his most recent expedition becoming one of the first, in known history, to walk the length of the Gambia River from source to sea.

Chaz has used his trusted Water-to-Go bottle on many of his adventures and this on-going partnership highlights his commitment to sustainable travel and protecting the environment. The Water-to-Go ambassador is keen to eliminate all single-use plastic bottles on his expeditions and showcase a simple alternative that everyone can use.

“Water-to-Go is a product that has breathed new life into my expeditions over the past few years and is now one of the most crucial pieces of kit that I carry whilst out on my many remote and wild journeys. It has changed the way I look at adventure, allowing me to venture further into more and more inaccessible regions, but yet still obtain safe clean drinking water without the worry of becoming sick or seriously dehydrated. With my plans for more wild African based trekking adventures in motion, I look forward to continuing to be supported and using such an incredible piece of equipment.”

Chaz plans to do more African based trekking adventures in the future and his Water-to-Go will be there every step of the way to keep him safe and hydrated.

Chaz is no stranger to adventure and has over 15 years of remote travel and expedition experience. In 2016/17 he spent 137 days walking the 3000km length of the Zambezi River, Africa’s fourth longest and wildest river; becoming only the second person in known history to complete this wild and dangerous journey by foot. Chaz is also an expedition leader and has traveled all over the world so has needed to ensure he had safe drinking water.

“During my journeys I relied on drinking straight from the rivers with my trusty Water-to-Go bottles. There was several sections of river where the water was just too contaminated. So whilst using my bottle it gave me both the confidence and tools I needed to survive in the most remotest of regions.”

Footsteps on the Gambia

After 47 days, 1120km and 1.5 million steps, adventurer, expedition leader and Water-to-Go ambassador Chaz Powell along with his fellow adventurer and expedition photographer Tim Roberts have become the first people in known history to walk the length of the Gambia river from its source in the Fouta Djallon, Guinea to the Atlantic Ocean on Africa’s Western coast. This epic journey took them through Guinea, Senegal and the complete length of The Gambia to become the first people in known history to walk the river’s length.

Chaz experienced cultures and communities first-hand that many people would not have known even existed so this adventure was able to provide a real insight to Africa that would have been completely different to what many people had experienced before.

One of the main reason’s behind this expedition was to raise awareness for wildlife conservation and highlight serious wildlife crimes that are happening along the remote regions surrounding Africa’s rivers. Chaz partnered with the African Wildlife Foundation for this expedition, who we are also working with, that focuses on the protection of African wildlife and wildlands.

One of the main aims & objectives behind my treks along Africa's wildest rivers is to raise funds and awareness for...

I knew I wanted to discover wild lands that were little known to others, lands where people daren’t venture due to tales of danger, mystery and the unknown. Something that would take me to a whole new level of exploration and be my ultimate adventure.

But he isn’t finished there! Chaz has already been planning his next expedition and has announced he will be attempting to walk the length of Madagascar’s longest river from source to sea – The Mangoky.

He and his team will start our journey on the East coast of Madagascar and then walk for over 800km across the width of the country. It’s sure to be an incredible and exciting expedition and you can be sure that his Water-to-Go bottle will be with him every step of the way.
