Swim for Nsumbu
The charity event is organized by Conservation Lake Tanganyika and will showcase a marathon relay swim by Jim Smith, Chris Liebenberg, Francois Cuturi and Zytkow. The four swimmers swam along the length of the Nsumbu National Park, which borders the Lake Tanganyika, one of the African Great Lakes. The Swim for Nsumbu was held in 2012, 2013 and 2014 in a relay format with each swimmer doing a 20-minute leg in Lake Tanganyika initiated by Craig Zytkow of Ndole Bay Lodge and Christiaan Liebenburg of Chongwe Safaris.
