I watched this series on TV and was very interested from the first episode. I was eager to see the next show each week and enjoyed every single one. It is good to see how people live in Africa, the culture and the way of life.
However, after seeing both LWD and LWR i have to admit that LWR is better, but it isnt because of the crew involved in this trip, as you dont see much of them. You are following Ewan and Charley's adventure and the only main times you see the support crews is at border crossings.
All in all, this is one adventure that shouldn't be missed!
