About Us

Dave Bouskill and Debra Corbeil have been in high gear since meeting in 1991. They have trekked, climbed, hiked and paddled their way through South East Asia, Central America, Europe and parts of North and South America. Residing in Toronto, Canada, they both work in the Film Industry, which allows them the freedom to take time off to explore the world. Having never been on a cycling tour, they were inspired to take up the challenge of biking 12,000 km after reading a magazine article about the Tour d’Afrique last January. Seeing each country from the seat of a bicycle offers a more up close and personal experience than planes, trains or automobiles could ever allow. Traveling through Africa is a dream come true and by crossing it on their bikes, they hope to inspire others to get out from behind the glass of a tour bus and meet the amazing people of the places that they visit.

True thrill seekers to the core, they have tried everything from white water kayaking and rafting on the Ottawa river, swimming with sharks in Belize, summiting South East Asia’s highest peak in Borneo, scaling the beautiful limestone cliffs of Southern Thailand and diving in the undisturbed reefs of Honduras and Mexico as well as the amazing ship wrecks that litter the bottoms of the Saint Lawrence River and Georgian Bay.

Dave’s Bio

Hello everyone. This is the page that I have to tell you a little bit about myself. img_3079.jpgIn 2000 I took my first real travel vacation to Thailand and became hooked on exploring new cultures. My life has never been the same since. I constantly look forward to my next destination.
Working in the film industry for the past 13 years has given me the flexibility and freedom to take off at a moments notice. I enjoy my career as a rigging gaffer, but travel has inspired another passion in my life-photography. I can’t wait to capture the beauty of Africa and its people.

My hobbies include mountain biking, rock climbing, hiking, camping, canoeing, snowboarding, running and swimming and photography. Through my travels I have had the opportunity to fulfill many of my life’s dreams such as surfing in Bali, Mountain Climbing in Asia and Paragliding in Peru. I can’t wait to see what I will be doing in Africa!

Deb’s Bio

100_0319_1.jpgMy Turn! I am really excited to be going to Africa and a little overwhelmed to be racing across the continent. I have always wanted to see the Serengeti and now I get to bike through it. Imagine that.

I also have worked for several years in the film business as a make-up artist. My last 3 years at YTV have been a blast, but alas, the calling of yet another great adventure has caused me to take my leave.

It was last January when I came home from a trip to Florida that I realized that I hadn’t been out of my element for a very long time. I try to challenge and inspire myself each day and even though life here in Toronto is great, there is more to see and do before I am done. So it is time to get out there and do it!

My hobbies include snowboarding, mountain biking, camping, canoing, rock climbing, writing and video production and editing . I am grateful to be able to take this trip with Dave who has been on so many adventures with me. There is nobody else I would want to share with, the aches of sleeping in a tent, the pain of biking 120km a day and the sheer joy of exploring a new continent.

I am looking forward to learning about Africa and meeting the people who live there. I cannot wait to see the magnificent wildlife and capture its beauty on my video camera.
